Cyber Security Summit 2016

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.

With tremendous success in 2013, 2014 and 2015, we are now ready to extend the discussion to a new height at the Cyber Security Summit 2015.

Similar to the past years, the 2016 edition will have three events, the Leadership Forum for CEOs and CIOs of the Corporates (on invitation only), Day Conference and the Night Hack – an informative evening with live demonstrations.

The Day Conference and the Night Hack will be held on 09th August 2016 at Cinnamon Lakeside, Colombo.
