- Sanath Manatunge
Sanath Manatunge is the Chief Risk Officer (CRO) at Commercial Bank of Ceylon Plc., the largest private sector bank in Sri Lanka. He counts over 24 years of banking experience at Commercial Bank, having held senior positions such as Head of Credit Risk and Chief Manager – Corporate Banking prior to being appointed as the CRO. Sanath was instrumental in the Bank introducing a dedicated, independent IT Risk Management Function under the Integrated Risk Management Department in 2012 becoming the pioneering local Bank to undertake such initiative, in the absence of a specific CISO role in Sri Lanka.
This initiative has contributed greatly in strengthening the information security and operational risk management strategy of the Bank creating the “second line of defense” to the existing third line of defense of the IT function; i.e. the IS Audit Compliance function.
