Strengthening National Cybersecurity Resilience: Insights from the FinCSIRT Point of Contact Forum

I recently participated in the Point of Contact Forum at the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, where FinCSIRT (Sri Lanka Financial Sector Computer Security Incident Response Team) Point of Contacts gathered to share knowledge and insights on the evolving cybersecurity landscape.

The primary objective of this gathering was to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing among key stakeholders entrusted with safeguarding our nation’s digital infrastructure.

With more insights from the Sri Lanka CERT|CC and LankaPay, discussions at the forum underscored the escalating cyber threats confronting our country, particularly the surge in financial fraud incidents targeting both individuals and institutions. Further, it brought to light the imperative of prompt incident reporting and the challenges inherent in disseminating cybersecurity awareness effectively across all segments of our society.

As cybersecurity professionals and responsible citizens, it’s our shared responsibility to prioritize incident reporting and cultivate a culture of transparency and collaboration among all stakeholders. By doing so, we can collectively enhance our resilience against cyber threats and mitigate their impact on our national security and economic stability.

Moving forward, it is imperative that we leverage all available resources and platforms, including traditional media channels, to bridge the gap in cybersecurity awareness and education across diverse demographics. Our proactive efforts in this regard will play a pivotal role in fortifying our national cybersecurity posture and ensuring a secure digital future for Sri Lanka.

Let’s remain steadfast in our commitment to safeguarding our nation’s digital interests and forging ahead towards a more resilient and secure cyber landscape.
