Telecom-ISAC Japan

Chairman's Message

First, we wish to express our sincere sympathy to the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2011.

The earthquake inflicted great damage on communications and other key infrastructures, causing varying levels of disruption to the provision of services and, again, making us aware of the importance of telecommunications in society and the magnitude of responsibility borne by the communications sector.

Telecom-ISAC Japan, short for Telecom Incident Information Sharing and Analysis Center Japan, was founded in July, 2002 by seven major domestic Internet service providers as a voluntary non-profit organization. In order to ensure safe and reliable communications services, members of Telecom-ISAC Japan have established programs for sharing and analyzing relevant information with the objective of carrying out timely measures in dealing with cyber threats more effectively than if the corporations acted alone.

In the nearly nine years that have passed since the founding of Telecom-ISAC Japan, our membership has increased from seven to sixteen corporations. Through the years, member companies have responded in unison to each new threat to information security, promoting cross-industry measures that enhance telecom security measures.

In recognition of the organization’s activities, during the FY 2010 Info-Communications Promotion Month, we were awarded the Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications Certificate of Merit for outstanding information security promotions.

Telecom-ISAC Japan is committed to “Robust security through close collaboration.” Our ongoing activities related to network security in the ISP/telecommunications fields are numerous and varied, and include coordinated, cooperative actions with agencies and organizations outside telecommunications.

We’re up to the challenges of addressing the daily changing threats to information security and to contributing to an Internet environment where everyone enjoys peace of mind. We believe that this, in turn, will contribute to further development of a high-level telecommunications network society.

With comprehensive programs of core activities, Telecom-ISAC Japan will continue navigating a course of security contributions on a global scale. We look forward to your continued support and encouragement.
