NEC Reinforces Cyber Security for ASEAN Administration

- "ASEAN-Japan Cybersecurity Cooperation Hub" provides training for administrative staff -

TOKYO, Oct, 26 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) today announced its provision of cyber security training for administrative staff of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) through Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications' "ASEAN-Japan Cybersecurity-Cooperation Hub" project.

In recent years, the importance of protecting digital information has become increasingly clear in the face of sophisticated cyberattacks that can cause extensive damages on a global scale. In response to this, NEC is helping to improve the early detection and effective handling of targeted cyber threats against ASEAN countries through an intensive training program for 40 ASEAN administrative staff.

This training will take place in the Philippine capital of Manila on October 26-27 with the cooperation of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT). The training will be similar to the CYber Defense Exercise with Recurrence (CYDER) program that Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has provided since 2013. It provides participants with first-hand experience that enables them to effectively respond to cyberattacks.

The ASEAN-Japan Cybersecurity Cooperation Hub project was launched at the Japan-ASEAN Telecommunications and IT Ministers Meeting (TELMIN) in November 2016 through the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund 2.0 (JAIF), which aims to strengthen human resource development in the ASEAN region.

In addition to the training of administrative staff, NEC also contributes to the program through support of the "Cyber South East Asia Games" (Cyber SEA Games), a competition that promotes the ability of young engineers and students from ASEAN countries to effectively handle cyberattacks.

Going forward, NEC will continue building relationships with government agencies and enterprises throughout the world in order to cultivate the necessary skills for protecting the safety and security of computing environments.
