"Cyber Security Management Guidelines", Reassessing Corporate Management and Information Security and Preventing Data leaks in M&A and JV Transaction.

Recently, data leaks have been a growing phenomenon, leading to an increase in related disputes and court case. As a consequence, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry formulated the "Cybersecurity Management Guidelines" in December 2015, mainly addressed to corporate management in order to promote cybersecurity measures under their leadership. It is said that compliance with these guidelines might be a de-facto standard for judging the liabilities of corporate managers. However, it is not clearly stated how the companies should conform to these guidelines. This program will explain how to respond to these guidelines as a company from a practical perspective, including how to keep good “evidence” to minimize the liabilities to be caused by a cyberattack. We will also discuss some key features of cyber security in a process of M&A and Joint Venture transactions.
