The team now comprises 540 personnel tasked with training human resources, supporting practical training, and managing information and communication networks. “The launch marks a major step toward establishing Japan’s superiority in the cyber domain at a time when the security environment is becoming increasingly severe,” said Defense Minister Kishi. “We are committed to strengthening our cyber defense capabilities.”
