Cisco partners Cyber Security Summit for seventh consecutive year

For the seventh consecutive year, Cisco – worldwide leader in IT – has signed up as the Principal Partner for Sri Lanka’s premier annual Cyber Security Summit 2019 edition.

The summit consists of three key events: Cyber Security Day Conference and the Night Hack on 24 September and CEOs’ Forum on Cyber Security on 25 September.

The CEOs’ Forum discusses why cyber security should be a board room discussion, whilst the Night Hack is an innovative and informative evening of information security demonstrations.

The summit also consists of the Youth Summit on Cyber Security on 23 September at the BMICH held for the third consecutive year.

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 number of international and local cyber security experts addressing the gathering,” 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,” he said.
