For the fifth consecutive year, Cisco – worldwide leader in IT – has announced its strategic partnership for Sri Lanka’s premier annual Cyber Security Summit 2017 edition.
The summit on 27 and 28 September at Cinnamon Grand consists of three key events: Cyber Security Day Conference and Hangout with Hackers (Night Hack) –an innovative and informative evening on the 27th, and the CEOs’ Forum on Cyber Security on the 28th.
The summit is co-organised by CICRA – Sri Lanka’s pioneering cyber security training and consultancy organisation – and Daily FT, the country’s only business and finance newspaper.
CICRA Group Director/CEO Boshan Dayaratne said that the co-organisers were honoured to have Cisco – a global leader that supports companies of all sizes to transform how people connect, communicate, and collaborate – as a main sponsor of the summit.
“This year’s summit will be a bigger and better experience with a number of international and local cyber security experts addressing the gathering. The highlight of the event would be the two founder members of world’s toughest hacking groups – LulzSec and Anonymous. They had been convicted and are now engaged in ethical hacking,” Dayaratne said.
“The main objective of the summit is to create awareness on the importance of Cyber Security among top officers in the top corporate management and IT professionals. It also infuses them with the best practices in acquiring, implementing, managing and measuring information security postures of their organisations and countermeasures.”
“The summit will also expose latest flaws in information security that affects the global community including the corporations and the governments. Discussions and presentations will revolve around some of the most malicious attacks and potential threats surrounding the security field,” Dayaratne added.
