Recent developments in cyber security in Japan
On October 1st, a private sector exchange of big data went live in Japan, enabling companies to buy and sell information. This is connected to recent discussions about cybersecurity.
It’s often said that Japanese companies are behind western rivals in using big data in business. In addition to that, it’s often talked about how ill-prepared Japanese businesses are towards hackers since computer and data security has been underdeveloped for a long time.
There might be a shift coming soon. As Japan is preparing for the 2020 Olympics, cybersecurity has gained a lot of attention. There are major concerns regarding the safety of IoT networks and systems.
However, with potential risks and vulnerabilities, there are also opportunities. The shortage of IT professionals provides opportunities for foreign companies offering cybersecurity solution’s in Japan.
