CA Sri Lanka helps fight cyber crime

With internet crimes increasing worldwide, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) recently launched a Diploma program which aims at giving professionals a thorough understanding on how to safeguard their company's information in today's vulnerable world where IT related crimes are excessively prevalent.

The Diploma in Information Systems Security, Control and Audit (DISSCA) conducted jointly with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India featured Indian expert, Anand Prakash Jangid (ACA, CISA, CISM, DISA and ACP) who was specially flown to the country as the resource person for the diploma program.

With organisations being increasingly vulnerable to information system-related risks, companies are taking special measures to ensure that they can combat such forms of crimes and risks, the CA Sri Lanka initiated diploma is a platform which educates managers, supervisors, internal auditors, accountants and financial controllers on how to safeguard their information.

The joint effort towards launching this diploma runs back to 2002 and to date 450 students have been trained in 18 batches.

Harnessing world class competencies in systems audit, control and security; enhancing technological skills of accounting professionals; empowering organisations and accounting professionals to face contemporary challenges in the current dynamic business environment; and establishing standards in systems security, control and audit, good governance and security practices

are amongst the objectives of this diploma.

Meanwhile, addressing the diploma awarding ceremony held recently at CA Sri Lanka premises, Jangid said that according to statistics released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), cybercrime earnings has today overtaken even drug trafficking. He advised that therefore steps should be taken to ensure companies don't fall prey to such forms of internet- based crimes and every effort should be taken to combat cyber crimes.
