Cyber Threat Intelligence: Strategic Defense in an Increasingly Borderless World

The Internet is more open today than it ever has been. Such inclusivity has produced opportunities for a range of diverse actors. For example, nefarious individuals have begun using the web to share exploit code and experiences with one another, an exchange which has contributed to an uptick in the number and sophistication of cyber-attacks.

Mr. Hirohito Aoki, deputy head of the defense systems unit at Fujitsu Limited, is concerned by that trend:

“Recently, we at Fujitsu have seen a one-way increase in the intensity and sophistication of cyber-attacks against specific companies and organizations. As a company in charge of protecting others from cyber-attacks, not to mention being a target of cyber-attacks ourselves, we think the trend is very worrisome.”

In response, Fujitsu will be sending its research principal Dr. Ryusuke Masuoka to speak at Borderless Cyber Asia 2016.


Hosted by OASIS, the nonprofit open standards consortium, in collaboration with its partners and co-host Keio University, Borderless Cyber Asia is a conference where attendees from the public, private, and academic sectors will gather together to discuss the importance of organizations sharing cyber threat intelligence to defend against the latest digital threats.

Towards that end, Dr. Masuoka will be talking at Borderless Cyber Asia about the challenges of threat intelligence sharing and ways to address those obstacles, including legal solutions and how machine-speed structured threat intelligence sharing holds the key to future cyber security.

Mr. Aoki similarly sees intelligence sharing networks as an area of opportunity in the ongoing fight against cyber-attacks. As he explains:

“Cyber threat intelligence sharing and security orchestration, including one by artificial intelligence, are already revolutionizing how organizations protect against digital threats. I think other proactive defenses like Active Threat Hunting and Cyber Denial and Deception (D&D) based on intelligence sharing, endpoint detection and response, and other technologies are also promising.”

Borderless Cyber Asia conference will occur on 1-2 November at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan. There, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the importance of sharing threat information and learn from the experiences of one another.
