Building Cyber Resilience Among Middle-Grade Officers in Sri Lanka Air Force

Project timeline: 6/29/2023 – 12/4/2023

As the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) continues to adapt to evolving threats in cybersecurity, Squadron Leader Shashika Sandaruwan Ekanayake identified network vulnerabilities that current and future officers must address. To best protect critical cyber infrastructures, he concentrated his efforts on revising the existing cybersecurity training module for junior and middle-grade SLAF officers. Sqn. Ldr. Ekanayake surveyed samples of students to identify weak areas of cyber awareness and successfully adjusted the curriculum accordingly.
