The Ticking Time Bomb of Cyber Crimes in Sri Lanka

November 28, 2023

Sri Lanka faces a growing cyber threat as it increasingly relies on digital services. Despite having capable cybersecurity professionals, top leadership's lack of awareness and understanding of these threats is concerning. The country has recorded high rates of cybercrime, and its regulatory framework is outdated.

The proposed Cyber Security Bill is yet to be presented, and the existing Computer Crimes Act needs updating. Investigative officers and agencies are often unprepared for cybercrime. This vulnerability puts critical infrastructure at risk.
