“We are always vigilant and we have closely looked at how cybercrime is evolving, and how to fight back and be protected. The reality is that all firms face cyber-attacks. Therefore, those in leadership in organizations need to analyze the possible threat of cyber security, when they are in the boardrooms to prepare strategic and business plans,” said M I Deen, Deputy Chief Enterprise and Wholesale Officer, SLT. Commenting further he said, “Decisions to adopt enterprise level managed security services are essential to survive without getting into more trouble and ensuring that as much security as possible is provided to every organization, for them to provide high quality services, without interruption to their own customers.” In order to ensure service levels (SLAs) within the organization, Sri Lanka Telecom has established an Information Security Management System (ISMS) covering the internal audits and activities, such as the regular assessment of vulnerability of critical services, penetration testing, compromise assessment, and security architecture reviews, which are conducted on a regular basis to ensure the compliance with ISO 27001 standard.
