INSSSL conducts discussion on Cyber Security

[May 19 2017]

The Institute of National Security Studies of Sri Lanka (INSSSL) held a discussion on the theme Threat Lens on "Cyber Security: The Evolving Threat Landscape in Sri Lanka" on Thursday (18th May) at the Ministry. The discussion was held under the patronage of Secretary to the Ministry of Defence, Eng. Karunasena Hettiarachchi last evening.

The discussion was held with the presence of experts in cyber security and information technology in the country in the wake of recent cyber-attacks that created mayhem in the security and commercial sectors in several countries.

The main purpose of this forum was to obtain expert views to instigate research that will assist in producing a framework for the country's potential cyber threat to national security. It is hoped that the framework will provide as assessment mechanism that will enable the government to determine its cyber security capabilities, set individual goals and establish a plan for improving and maintaining cyber security programs. The framework will also help contribute to cyber security awareness and education.

Additional Secretary -Defence, Mr. R.M. Sarath Kumara, Director General, INSSSL Mr Asanga Abeyagoonasekera and senior tri forces officers were also present at the occasion.
