As cyber security threats skyrocket and not even a day passes by without a cyber-security breach on a corporate or a government entity on its IT infrastructure, International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) will hold a top cyber security summit in Sri Lanka on June 25, 2013.

The summit will comprise a Breakfast meeting with CEOs of top corporations and senior officials of the government, Cyber Security Summit for IT professions targeting senior officials from the corporate and government sectors, and a ‘Night Hack’ – Evening informative session.
