They’ve been around for almost a decade and is the only not-for-profit organisation in Sri Lanka that conducts a number of research and academic programmes on multiple subjects ranging from Project Management, Islamic Finance, Investment to Cyber Security.
The Centre for Integrated Communication Research and Advocacy or CICRA, encapsulates a number of subsidiaries including CICRA Consultancies, the education / training arm of the CICRA Holdings.
With a special focus on cyber security training, CICRA Consultancies already has in place a number of courses related to the Sri Lankan ICT environment. One such programme done in collaboration with the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) in America is Certified Ethical Hacking (C|EH). They recently launched a new training programme in EC-Council Network Security Administrator (ENSA) and are now offering ten full scholarships. (In case you are calculating your savings, it would be course fee of LKR 65,000 + exam voucher of USD 250.)
A quick look at the course contents include: intrusion detection and intrusion prevention systems, log analysis, patch management, virtual private networks and remote networking, creating fault tolerance, incident response, disaster recovery and planning, and network vulnerability assessment.
