NIKSUN WWSMC Returns to the City of the Future
PRINCETON, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
NIKSUN (News - Alert)® Headquarters is buzzing with the
newest upcoming event. On August 4th, 2014, NIKSUN, the world
leader in real-time and forensics-based cyber security and network
monitoring solutions, is hitting the streets of Tokyo, Japan. NIKSUN's
Worldwide Security & Mobility Conference (WWSMC)
is heading once again to the City of the Future. Attended annually by
hundreds of security practitioners, the WWSMC
is recognized as the premiere cyber security assembly in Japan and the
NIKSUN is no stranger to Tokyo. This year's WWSMC
marks the second for NIKSUN in Japan. In the previous year, NIKSUN
representatives and other prominent researchers and leaders advised on
the growing cyber needs in the region. These included securing mobile
infrastructure and counter measures of state-of-the-art cyber attacks
and challenges in Japan. The 2014 NIKSUN Japan WWSMC
promises to be yet another powerful day, hosting the convergence of many
Mr. Fumiaki Yamasaki, Professor at Aizu University will keynote the WWSMC
with his overview of the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework. Directed
under President Barack Obama, the NIST framework provides a structure
that organizations, regulators and customers can use to create, guide,
assess or improve comprehensive cyber security programs. Mr. Yamasaki
will not only outline the framework, but explain its intention. In turn,
he will address how companies and government organizations alike can
deploy the NIST framework to enhance cyber security protection.
Top-notch sales and engineering team members representing NIKSUN will
include Rck Sanford, SVP of Worldwide Sales; Mr. Jochen Patzer, VP of
System Engineering, Mr. Katsuhiko Ikeda, Regional Sales Manager, Japan;
and Mr. Yukiharu Haraguchi, Systems Engineer, Japan.
Opening the Japan WWSMC,
Mr. Sanford will review the most recent international cyber attacks. His
speech will highlight how the important NIST framework can be the base
for the Japanese cyber security environment. Why Japan? Due to the
increasing building of private Security Operations Centers (SOCs) within
companies and government sectors, now is an optimal time to accumulate
the knowledge of how to build and operate SOCs in the prevention of
cyber attacks against critical assets.
Later in the day's program, Mr. Haraguchi will provide an overview of
security solution, followed by a demonstration of NIKSUN's
sophisticated capabilities, showing in real-time how the NIKSUN security
solution works at the operational level of such SOCs that Mr. Sanford
will refer to in his opening speech.
Another notable invited presenter includes Mr. Keisuke Kamata, Senior
Analyst at the Cyber Defense Institute. Mr. Kamata is well-known in the
Asia-Pacific area for his diligent work in the financial sector. He will
facilitate dialogue on how organizations should build and maintain
Dr. Pruthi and NIKSUN are looking forward to the outcome of this year's
WWSMC, and the many more to come to Tokyo and the Asia-Pacific region.
All of those behind NIKSUN are eager to return again to the cyber realm
in Tokyo. "We are pleased to offer our WWSMC in Tokyo next week, as it
is a prime location for our international cyber warriors," said Dr.
Parag Pruthi, NIKSUN Founder, Chairman, and CEO. "With the growing
number of private SOCs, governments and enterprises are looking to
NIKSUN's solutions to protect their investments. At WWSMC
Tokyo, experts in the field will meld minds with Team NIKSUN and
together we can solve the cyber issues of our day."
Parag Pruthi, NIKSUN Founder, Chairman, & CEO first conceived the
idea of NIKSUN's WWSMC through conversations with high government
officials. Spurred on by discussions, Dr. Pruthi began an educational
campaign to raise awareness on the issues facing the world from
malicious cyber actors operating inside and outside our borders. In
response, the NIKSUN WWSMC brings together global technical leaders to
foster an interactive and informative learning experience, bringing us
all a step closer in keeping our cyber world safe today, and for future
Registration is closed due to early high attendance rates. Look for more
updates during and after NIKSUN's WWSMC, Japan 2014.
