How can the United States and Japan further collaborate on crucial digital and cyber issues, including security, trade, innovation, and crisis management? Building on the U.S.-Japan Cyber Dialogue launched in March to identify ways for greater U.S.-Japan cooperation on these issues, Japan Society will co-sponsor this event with the two co-organizers of the Dialogue, Keio University and Columbia University. The event will feature panel discussions on each of the four areas identified for exploration by Dialogue members: Cyber Norms and Measurement; Digital Free Flow with Trust; Fostering Digital Innovation; and the Human Element of Cyber Crisis Management, with Japan Society leading the discussion on fostering digital innovation.

These discussions will form the basis for on-going Dialogue working groups in each area. Ms. Izumi Nakamitsu, U.N. Undersecretary for Disarmament, will offer a keynote on the subject of Establishing Global Cyber Norms and Implications for Japan and the United States.
