Commenting on this nationally-significant CSR initiative, Sierra Group Chairman, Priyantha Perera said: “Sierra has been in business for over 42 years. We have a history of grooming Sri Lankan talent, be it in telecommunication, civil, water, power and other heavy engineering sectors. We have always believed in Sri Lankan talent and that has paid dividends, repeatedly. Given the current local economic outlook, we felt it was time that we focused on aligning the quality of talent in the country with market demand. As cyber security is an emerging area where opportunities surpass the current talent pool, we launched this CSR programme to train local graduates to serve global companies in this sphere.”

He also observed that as per the 2021 Gartner report, the global cyber security market is valued at US$ 150 billion, of which about 50% of the businesses outsource. This creates a greater opportunity for the trainees to tap into.
