Since Tokyo was selected to host the Summer Olympic Games 2020 in September 2013, Japan has been accelerating its efforts to enhance its national cybersecurity capabilities in terms of policy-making, cyberthreat information-sharing, and human resources development. In 2017, the Japanese government will issue three national cybersecurity strategy documents. Mihoko Matsubara will survey Japan’s initiatives in the field of cybersecurity over the last three years and analyze the outlook for the next three years.
