Since 2002, Japan and the EU have been jointly organizing Japan-EU symposiums at the EU presidency country to promote coordination between civil societies, cultural exchange and people-to-people exchange.

At this 14th symposium, panelists will discuss cyber security, one of the most urgent issues in the international community.

The development of cyber technology promotes economic growth and social development. On the other hand, in cyberspace malicious activities are prevailing such as cyber-attacks, cyber theft or cybercrime committed by terrorists, criminals and state-sponsored actors. Cyberspace is managed and operated by various actors all over the world, both private and public. In order to ensure cyber security, it is necessary to promote international cooperation.


For this symposium, experts are invited who play an active role in today’s cyber business community from both public and private sectors including responsible officials from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Japan, the Netherlands and EEAS to share knowledge and exchange opinions on three main themes; ‘International Cooperation for the Cyber Security’, ‘Measures to protect critical infrastructure’ and ‘Promotion of the management of company with security mind’.


The Dutch Special Envoy for International Cyber Policies, Dr. Uri Rosenthal, will provide the introductory remarks, and Mrs. Ida Haisma, Director of The Hague Security Delta Office will moderate the symposium.
