News from Japan: Implementing ACTIVE & Holding ACTIVE Promotion Forum

Malware infection methods, including those by website browsing, are becoming more and more sophisticated and intricate, and it has become difficult for Internet users to be aware of their own computer infections and respond autonomously.

Therefore, the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) has decided to start an anti-malware support project called Advanced Cyber Threats response InitiatiVE (ACTIVE for short) under public-private cooperation on Friday, November 1, 2013. Prior to the start of ACTIVE, the MIC will hold an ACTIVE Promotion Forum with the aim of strengthening the implementation system of ACTIVE.

Malware infection methods, including those by website browsing, are becoming more and more sophisticated and intricate these days, and it has become difficult for Internet users to be aware of their own computer infections and respond autonomously. For this reason, MIC in conjunction with a number of domestic Internet service providers (ISPs), security vendors, etc. has decided to work on a public-private project called ACTIVE to conduct demonstration experiments, including those to prevent access to malware distribution sites. Furthermore, the MIC will hold an ACTIVE Promotion Forum attended by businesses participating in ACTIVE with the aim of strengthening the implementation system of ACTIVE.

The first ACTIVE Promotion Forum will be held on Friday, October 11, 2013, and succeeding ones will be held in sequence. For further information about this press release, please fill in the inquiry form and submit it to MIC on the website
