Event Details

It is not just geopolitical realities that demand an upgrade to Japan's national security strategy, but technological advances also command an urgent need to prepare for multi-dimensional conflict. A prudent leader knows today's harsh reality—"You're either under a cyber attack, or you just don't know you're under one" and clearly the potential vulnerabilities are in both the private and the public sector.

Is Japan ready and prepared?

Join us for an interactive session with Japan's leading cyber security expert, Cartan McLaughlin. He has been operating at the cutting edge of cyber security for decades with deep connections inside Japan's public self-defense forces as well as all the major tech companies. Cartan is obsessed with bringing not just Global best practices in cyber defense to Japan, but to empower Japan's leader to push for more home-grown security leadership, innovation, and implementation.

It's a topic we all need to engage with, and there's no better guide to the realities of Japan's (and global) cyber security agenda than Cartan.

Join us for what will be an insightful and exciting session.
