Yomiuri wrote in its top story that the GOJ plans to organize this fall a massive cyberattack drill in coordination with the U.S. and selected European and other countries, such as the UK, Australia, and Israel. The training will reportedly be based on the scenario of key infrastructure of the participating nations, such as power supply and telecommunications networks, being hit by a simultaneous cyberattack. Participating officials are expected to verify the procedures for ascertaining the scope of the attack and damage, identifying the perpetrators, and restoring the damaged infrastructure. The daily conjectured that the drill is being organized with China’s rapidly growing presence in cyberspace in mind. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the GOJ may give up on conducting the drill in Tokyo “in person” and instead hold it via videoconference.
