Premier and award-winning regional technology leader Epic Technology Group, synonymous with innovative and superior ‘FinTech’ solutions, takes the lead in technology development by opening a Cyber Security Management Lab in Japan, a first by a Sri Lankan ‘FinTech’ company outside Sri Lanka.

Speaking on this landmark achievement Epic Technology Group Director and CEO Viraj Mudalige who was in Japan recently stated: “Cyber security today has become a hot topic of discussion and very soon it will be a national issue if not addressed properly, with Japan getting ready for the 2020 Olympics the threat of cyber security looms and needs to be addressed fast. Epic Technology Group with our extensive experience and diverse proprietary product portfolio in Information Systems Security, Secure Electronic Payments, Identity and Access Management and Secure Enterprise Communication domains, is delighted to join hands with IUJ to build awareness and prepare enterprise management to face this issue successfully.”

“The main objective of this Cyber Security Management Lab in Japan would be to conduct joint research and conduct management training programs on cyber security, information systems security, secure payments and cyber threat mitigation. Confirmation has already been received from top corporates to participate in our joint programs, so that they are well aware of the threats and can take adequate measures to protect themselves and their business. Programs will be done in conjunction with the Global IT Park in Niigata Prefecture where Epic Technology already operates from,” added Mudalige.
