Information Security threats affect almost every company and organization. As a result, information systems security professionals are in great demand. However it was not until the dawn of this decade that overseas institutions started to offer academic specialization to help develop the skills needed to design, implement, operate and manage a robust information security system that is compliant with standards, policies, and laws. I am very pleased and grateful to CICRA for bringing this AeU MSc. in Information Security Degree program along with its rich curriculum and faculty; to the shores of Sri Lanka, the first institution to do so in the island; opening the opportunity to many professionals to acquire this knowledge and accreditation. CICRA is clearly a nationwide leader that along with many of their other initiatives and programs offered, have cemented their efforts to build; skilled next generation security professionals in Sri Lanka.
