Cyber Security Summit 2016: building a cyber-empowered private sector in Sri Lanka

The 4th edition of the Cyber Security Summit organized by CICRA and Daily FT, with the support of the Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) of Sri Lanka, focused on the internal and external threats and challenges confronting corporate, as well as government organizations.

Experts across all sectors stressed the need for organizations to invest in the knowledge and skills of their employees to react to cyber threats.

ICTA Sri Lanka Director and Legal Advisor Jayantha Fernando discussed the national legislative context, shaped by the Budapest Convention, aimed at providing a better procedure for investigating cybercrimes in Sri Lanka:

We need to also look at how best our law could adapt to growing challenges and threats resulting from offenses committed on the internet. Sri Lanka’s standard so far meets international norms but it needs to do the next step of capacity building.

The Council of Europe called for closer cooperation and information sharing among private sector entities when confronted with cyber threats, and further pointed out the importance of capacity building in tackling cybercrime as a global phenomenon:

When talking about human capital, we really believe that capacity building, administrating proper education and developing programs which can develop capacities are of importance. If we look at CERT statistics, we can see the increasing pattern of cybercrimes which is a global phenomenon too. … In 2015, Sri Lanka has seen an evenly-distributed histogram of cybercrime activities which means that public and private organizations as well as individuals have been affected by different types of threats.

Preparing for GLACY+ in Sri Lanka

A review of the progress and results achieved by Sri Lanka along the GLACY project was carried out between 8 and 11 August. The overarching aim of the mission was to assess the country’s capacity to act as hub for the South Asian region within the Global Action on Cybercrime Extended (GLACY+) initiative.

Sri Lanka joined the GLACY project in 2014 and became the fastest priority country to accede and ratify the Budapest Convention, in September 2015.

During the assessment mission, main achievements of Sri Lanka have been remarked, such as the implementation of a sustainable training program for law enforcement agencies, following the Training of Trainers (ToT) modules for First Responders delivered under the GLACY capacity building framework. Over the past year, the GLACY trained police officers exported the courses on cybercrime and electronic evidence to all regions of Sri Lanka reaching out to over 600 law enforcement professionals.

Sri Lanka’s further contribution in enhancing regional and international cooperation on cybercrime was acknowledged by the Tongan authorities who recently launched their first national CERT, built also on the best practices shared by SL-CERT.

The full progress review and assessment was carried out by a team of Council of Europe staff and experts, as well as a representative of the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI).
