NHK and TV Asahi reported at noon that the National Police Agency has decided to open a “cyber bureau” next fiscal year to respond to cyberattacks since they are becoming increasingly serious. The networks said the new bureau will be established to strengthen the system of collecting and analyzing information on cyberattacks and promote cooperation with the police nationwide. In addition, the agency is also planning to set up a new unit in charge of major cybercrimes made up of about 200 officers with special expertise. NHK said although each prefectural police force has been investigating cybercrimes individually, the agency is hoping that setting up a new bureau under the government will promote Japan’s cooperation with other nations as well as improve its investigation techniques.
