All national papers except Nikkei took up a press conference in Tokyo on Wednesday by visiting Deputy National Security Advisor Neuberger. She reportedly emphasized the importance for the United States and Japan to strengthen coordination with Australia, India, and other partners to ensure security in cyberspace. “It is urgently necessary to build an international relationship of cooperation to deal with threats in cyberspace,” she was quoted as saying. “There are no boundaries when it comes to technology. A threat to one nation constitutes a threat to all.” The White House official in charge of cyber and emerging technology reportedly praised Japan’s efforts to forestall cyberattacks initiated by China and other countries. She went on to say: “We want the Japanese government to modernize all its [cyber] defense tools.” Speaking on China’s launch of cyberattacks against Taiwan, Neuberger reportedly said Taiwan’s self-defense capabilities must be enhanced, including in cyberspace. “Stability across the Taiwan Strait is critical to the United States and the region,” she added.
