The national centre for cyber security, Sri Lanka Computer Emergency
Response Team (SLCERT) said that they are currently collaboratively
working with the military forces to identify possible factors which
could wage a cyber war against Sri Lanka.

SLCERT Senior Information Security Engineer Rohana Palliyaguru said that
they are working together with the military forces on determining
potentially harmful forces that are operating in cyberspace that have
the possibility of waging a cyber-war against the country so that a
mechanism could be formulated to prepare Sri Lanka against such attacks.

Mr. Palliyaguru, who also spoke of the rising issue of cyber crimes in
Sri Lanka, said that most cyber crimes occur as a result of the lack of
awareness and knowledge on the part of the victims. “There are certain
necessary precautionary actions which cyberspace users should follow in
order to protect themselves from cyber crimes. However, we realized that
most of the crimes had occurred as a result of the lack of awareness of
such protective measures,” he said.
