Israeli and Japanese companies sign MOU on cyber know-how E-mail

Israel and Japan signed two co-operation agreements in May to enhance economic and industrial collaboration between the countries.

Israeli cyber companies will be involved in a new training programme led by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry for Japanese cyber companies. The programme involves the integration and assimilation of technologies and know-how from Israel.

In the framework of this co-operation, Israeli companies will present cyber risks to Japanese companies, while exposing them to systems developed in Israel for protection against such attacks.

The Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry Hiroshige Seko and his Israeli counterpart, Eli Cohen, signed the agreements during the Japanese minister’s visit to Israel. “The agreement of understandings concerning cyberspace includes joint cyber exercises by companies from Israel and companies from Japan, an exchange of know-how and technologies in this field, and the possibility of integrating companies from Israel in cyber protection in Japan, especially in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The Japanese regard Israel as a pioneer in cyberspace, and they need us to help prepare for the Olympic Games,” said Dagan Alony of Israel’s Ministry of Economy and Industry Foreign Trade Administration.
