Japan seeks to protect infrastructure with cyberdefense training

TOKYO -- The Japanese government will set up as early as next fiscal year a training center aimed at strengthening the cybersecurity of such infrastructure as power, gas and water.

Trainees, such as engineers at private-sector companies, will receive guidance on cyberdefense technology and instruction from experts including former hackers. Upon completing the course, lasting about a year, trainees will be endowed with a new national credential being launched next fiscal year.
