We invite you to join us for the 13th International Cybersecurity Symposium at Cyber Security Research Center of Keio University. We plan in-person Symposium at Keio’s Mita Campus in Tokyo. We will continue our exploration of international cybersecurity issues with, namely National Security, Economic Security, and Societal Security, discussing challenges impacting our planet’s civilization, climate change, geopolitical conflicts, ransomware impacts, and the negative use of cyber, generative AI, outer space, and digital technologies in our daily lives.

Our theme this year is: National Security, Economic Security, and Societal Security through Multilateral Public-Private Partnership Actions". Cybersecurity is increasingly essential element of all types of security. The goal of this Symposium is to identify actions for integrating cybersecurity to protect lifeline with critical infrastructure such as energy, communication, transportation, financial, healthcare, water, etc. The discussions will include examining differences and gaps in cybersecurity among countries, regions, G7, G20, and creating practical actions to address the gaps and create trusted multilateral partnerships.

In the National Security domain, we observed hybrid types of attacks on Ukraine and lessons learned, expanding potentially Taiwan contingencies. Multiple bilateral and multilateral organizations, such as Five Eyes, AUKUS, Quad, and NATO, are addressing these National Security concerns. Given National Security Strategy, active defense is in the discussions.

In the Economic Security domains, expanding to National Security, are now preparing by private sector companies for resilient, safe, and secure critical infrastructure. Considering global supply chain, security clearance schemes are different by countries and regions.

In the Societal Security domain, international cross-border digital data flows are important cybersecurity theme, namely International Mutual Recognition for achieving Data Free Flow with Trust (DFFT), highlighted in the G7 Digital Ministerial Meeting, Institute Agreement for Partnership (IAP), supported by G7 and G20.

With those three aspects of cybersecurity, we invite key speakers and panelists for 2 and half days throughout the Symposium. Our discussions will be tailored towards international multilateral actions among government, industry, and academia.

We will have a series of keynote speeches, panel discussions, specialized sessions, discussing how to achieve multilateral Digital Trust among like-minded countries, regions with Japan, U.S., UK, EU, Australia, Israel, France, India, Singapore, and Indonesia for international joint research, policy and education items shared by the INCS-CoE partners, and more.
