National Cyber Security Operations Center (NCSOC)
Digital Infrastructure development has been identified as one of the key areas towards achieving the national policy objective of digitization of economy by the Government. Usage of government networks and applications will be increased rapidly, and it is essential to ensure the security, availability and convenience. Cyber-attacks against businesses and government agencies are on the rise.
With the vision of creating secure Digital Infrastructure, the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) together with the Sri Lanka CERT|CC has embarked on a significant and important initiative to build the National Cyber Security Operations Center (NCSOC) with the aim to drive a holistic and comprehensive approach to Cyber Security protection for the country. This will enable overcoming the barrier of identifying the cyber security attacks to the information systems in a proactive manner while ensuring the security and availability of government services. This will build the trust on government services which would further facilitate the usage and adoption.
It is intended to offer the services to all key government organizations via the proposed NCSOC. Moreover, critical private businesses such as financial sector, telecommunication sector will also be key stakeholders of this national initiative.
