Cyberattacks and cybercrimes hit at businesses across the world and no one sees an end to it. Therefore, cyber security becomes a day-to-day topic in the present context of countries, public institutions, business community, charity works and even in the black market.
It is obvious that there is no one-time solution to this horrendous threat. Being alive, attentive and reactive are a must. The only way forward is that not only IT professionals but also the managements and non-IT staff are well aware of present challenges, possible solutions and more importantly best practices against possible attacks.
In 2013 CICRA and Daily FT launched Cyber Security Summit to increase public awareness thus helping to strengthen the IT security domain in Sri Lanka and the region.
