Political Origins of Cybersecurity Capacity: Lessons from Japan & South Korea

January 7, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Moore Hall 319 (Tokioka Room), 1890 East-West Rd. Add to Calendar

Cybercrime and cyber attacks are becoming an increasing threat to the economic security of both states and firms. Despite this, firms continue to under-invest in cybersecurity technologies.

In his talk, Benjamin Bartlett, a postdoctoral fellow at the Program on U.S.-Japan Relations at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University, will describe the different policy approaches Japan and South Korea have taken to dealing with this issue. He will then discuss how differences in their political-economic institutional structures lead to policy approaches that vary both with each other and with the hands-off approach taken by the United States.

This public talk is part of the Center for Japanese Studies Seminar Series, co-sponsored with the Center for Korean Studies and the East-West Center.

The speaker, Dr. Benjamin Bartlett, is a postdoctoral fellow at the program on U.S. Japan-Relations, Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at the Harvard University.
