Activities on Global Encryption Day

The language used for all events is Japanese. No interpreters are available.

The Global Encryption Coalition, in which JCA-NET also participates, will hold an international campaign "Global Encryption Day" to appeal the importance of encryption, mainly on October 21, in concern about the attempts by governments and others to strengthen encryption regulations.

JCA-NET will make efforts in line with this campaign on the following dates. Please join us.

Thursday, 21 October: JCA-NET Monthly Seminar Special Edition from 7 p.m.
(Topic) Considering the importance of cryptography from the international human rights movements.
In the international human rights movements, it is essential to take necessary communication while protecting the lives of human rights activists and journalists in the field. Makoto Teranaka will talk about the challenges of cryptography from the perspective of international human rights.
Guest speaker: Makoto Teranaka (former Secretary General of Amnesty International Japan, teaches criminology and international criminal law at Tokyo Keizai University)

Saturday 23 October: Symposium 1pm-3pm
(Topic) Surveillance Society and Cryptography
The whistle-blowing by Edward Snowden was supported by secret contacts with journalists, supported by cryptography. On the other hand, our right to the secrecy of our communications is being threatened as the Japanese government launches organisations such as the Digital Agency and the Cyber Agency of the National Police Agency. This symposium will give an opportunity to think about these issues.
