Please review summary of the event

The three elements of Cyber3 are cyber connections, cybercrime and cybersecurity. Specifically, Cyber3 covers these three closely related issues: increased interconnectivity due to Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet services, increases in cybercrime; and changes in privacy, interconnectivity and related security issues.

The world of IT has changed greatly over the past year. AI, IoT, digital currencies, connected vehicles and robots are helping solve basic human problems while giving rise to new industries. In the 2020s, these emerging technologies will be put to use in fields ranging from aging societies to the sharing economy and smart cities, helping transform numerous existing social systems.

At the last Cyber3 Conference, stakeholders from industry, government, academia, and civil society discussed collaboration in industry, between the public and private spheres, between countries and international groups, as well as human resource development. These areas are vital to resolving cybersecurity issues.

For this year, Cyber3 Conference is jointly held with the 5th International Cybersecurity Symposium hosted by Keio University Cybersecurity Research Center. The theme of this year’s Cyber3 Conference is “2020 and Beyond.” Participants will discuss what should be done now to reap the benefits and address the problems of cybersecurity in the next decade. Knowledge from overseas experts, government policy, university research and industrial circles will be shared. This multistakeholder conference will aim for frank discussions to serve as the basis for recommendations to the Japanese government and other bodies.
