FinCSIRT, the Sri Lanka Financial Sector Computer Security Incident Response Team, formerly known as "BankCSIRT," was established in 2014 through a collaborative effort involving the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, the Sri Lanka Banks' Association and the Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre. FinCSIRT is an independent unit hosted under LankaPay (Pvt) Ltd, the operator of the national payment network. Notably, FinCSIRT holds the “Liaison Membership” of the Asian Pacific Computer Emergency Response Team and the First Pacific FinCSIRT to be established.

In its initial phase, FinCSIRT started its operations primarily providing a reactive response to the banking sector. However, FinCSIRT has evolved to provide more comprehensive services to the financial sector.
