 The government will broaden its network of international cooperation for dealing with cyberattacks. In addition to the Western countries and the ASEAN states, it will also start discussions with the Latin American and Middle East nations, with which it has not had a strong cooperative relationship so far.


 This is because of the increase in cyberattacks across national boundaries. Japan will promote mutual understanding of cyber security strategies and sharing of information on cyberattacks through bilateral talks. It will seek cooperation in developing technology for cyber security in order to prevent the spread of damages across national boundaries and dispel distrust.


 The cabinet’s National Center of Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC) and the Foreign Ministry will serve as points of contact for international cooperation. By sharing information on cyberattacks with the Western countries, Japan hopes to use such information for the analysis of the source of attacks and other purposes.
