Japan reportedly seeks corporate aid to fight hackers
Japan plans to work more closely with private companies by sharing information on cyber attacks after defense contractor Mitsubishi Heavy Industries was hacked, the Nikkei business daily reported Sunday.
The government also aims to ratify an international treaty on online crimes, Nikkei said without citing a source.
The United States has recently pressured Japan to take more action against cyber attacks after Mitsubishi Heavy, which works closely with the Boeing Co., said in September that network information such as IP addresses may have been leaked. Tokyo is considering asking private companies, including utilities, railway operators, defense contractors, automakers and electronics, to sign an agreement with public bodies to share information on cyber attacks, Nikkei said.
