Securing the Games: Tokyo’s 2020 Cybersecurity Challenge

All eyes will be on Tokyo when it hosts the Olympic Games in the summer of 2020. Plans are well under way to ensure the success of the most widely watched sporting event in the world, and Japan is eager to showcase its capital as a global leader of advanced technology, sustainable development, and urban resilience. The Olympics will also make Japan a target ripe for cyberattacks. Join us for a discussion on assessing the cybersecurity threat landscape and the challenges of ensuring the safety and security of the Olympic Games, as well as the outlook for US-Japan cooperation in cybersecurity.
