CICRA Campus, a renowned institution for cyber security education in Sri Lanka, has recently announced the introduction of a new program in collaboration with EC Council USA aimed at producing certified cyber security professionals.

The Certified Cyber Security Professional program is exclusively offered at CICRA Campus under the Academia program for undergraduates in Sri Lanka. The program is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of cyber security concepts, practices, and tools to help them combat cyber threats effectively.

This particular program is dedicated to undergraduates and students between the ages of 18 and 24, and offers professional certifications such as Certified Network Defender, Certified Ethical Hacker, and Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator at a special discounted rate opting for the certified cyber security professional certification at the undergraduate level not only brings about savings of nearly Rs. 800,000 but also adds value to the student’s profile by attaining certifications at a younger age, enabling them to establish a stronger presence in the job market.

In addition to the core cyber security modules, the program also includes CCNA components, which will enable students to develop a better understanding of computer networks and their security.

CICRA Campus is working closely with leading business conglomerates in Sri Lanka to recognise the certified cyber security professionals who obtain their qualifications from CICRA Campus under this program. This collaboration will help students to gain valuable experience and exposure to real-world cyber security challenges, thereby increasing their employability and career prospects.

CICRA Campus Group Director/CEO Boshan Dayaratne said, “With cyber threats on the rise and the COVID-19 pandemic driving organisations to digital platforms and mobile apps, there is an urgent need for skilled cyber security professionals globally. CICRA Campus is committed to promoting education in cyber security and the new program is a testament to that commitment that will make them highly employable in the job market. As part of its commitment to promoting education in cyber security, CICRA Campus is also offering 10 scholarships to suitable undergraduates who wish to pursue the Certified Cyber Security Professional program. These scholarships will cover the full cost of the program and will be awarded based on academic merit and financial need.”

The launch of the Certified Cyber Security Professional program by CICRA Campus is a significant step towards providing world-class cyber security education in Sri Lanka. This program will not only help students to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to combat cyber threats but also provide them with valuable certifications that are recognised globally.

With the increasing demand for cyber security professionals in Sri Lanka, this program is an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to kickstart their careers in this exciting and rewarding field.
