Japan-US Cooperation: A Vision for Collaboration in Cyberspace to Ensure Peace and Security across the Asia Pacific
Date and Time
Friday, September 18, 2015 11:00am-12:30pm
2000 M Street, NW Washington, D.C. 20036
Cyber threats are a clear and present danger around the globe. With daily news reports of cyber-attacks on government, military, private sector, and even individual information technology (IT) infrastructures, no one is immune. In Japan—which is located in what is often described as “the world’s wildest cyber region” of East Asia—the Japanese Diet passed the Cyber Security Basic Act last year and the Government of Japan has just adopted and released its new “Cyber Security Strategy” . Further, the Japanese and U.S. governments have allied themselves to tackle these IT challenges through bilateral dialogues and many other channels. Japan-U.S. cyber security cooperation is critical in dealing with increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks. This event will evaluate cyber incidents in East Asia and explore possible counter measures to ensure the continued peace and security of the Asia Pacific region.
