Japan will send members of its Self-Defense Forces to receive specialized training in cyberdefense with U.S. forces, in a cooperative program to bolster Japan’s defense against cyber-attacks, sources said.

SDF members will learn from the technologies and experiences of the more advanced U.S. forces in countering cyber-attacks.

The project aims not only at improving the SDF’s cyberdefense capabilities but also at strengthening the Japan-U.S. alliance.

Japan-U.S. cooperation in the field of cyber-related affairs had previously been limited to exchanging information, but this project is expected to deepen working-level collaboration between the two sides.
