Keio University established the Cybersecurity Research Center in August 2015. Since then, it has worked on social issues in the field of cybersecurity through initiatives that span beyond organizational and national confinements such as holding international symposiums and establishing the world’s first InterNational Cyber Security Center of Excellence (INCS-CoE) where international organizations collaborate to address cyberthreats.
The Cyber3 Conference Tokyo 2017 international symposium was held concurrently with the 5th International Cybersecurity Symposium, which was hosted by the Keio University Cybersecurity Research Center. There were many lectures, panel discussions, workshops, etc., on themes including “Next Generation Security Operation Center for the AI Era,” “Leadership for Cybersecurity Management,” “Roles and Responsibilities of Government and the Private.” Also, as part of the activities of INCS-CoE, a signing ceremony for the cooperation agreement between Georgia Institute of Technology and Keio University was held during the opening of the symposium.
Many participants from Japan and abroad, including government officials, experts in the field of cybersecurity, and members of universities participating in INCS-CoE, attended the symposium and carried out active exchange which spanned beyond the boundaries of industry, government, and academia.
