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.
