Yomiuri wrote in a prominent inside-page story that the Israeli government in January formed a partnership with seven domestic firms to export cyber-defense technology to Japan by taking advantage of the shortage of Japanese experts in the field. Following a summit between PM Abe and his Israeli counterpart Netanyahu in May 2014, the two nations have deepened their bilateral cooperating in preventing cyberattacks and terrorism. The Israelis are keen to market their cyber-defense expertise to Japan as it may become a primary target of cyberattacks ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. They see Japan as a viable market because exporting sensitive technology would not raise security concerns as Japan is a close ally of the U.S.
