The Executive Director of ENISA, Professor Udo Helmbrecht, commented upon the visit;
"I am very pleased and honoured to meet and hold discussions with the delegation from IPA. International collaboration in between the EU and Japan, as well as with the rest of the world, exchange of best practices, and liaison is imperative for raising cyber security standards worldwide. We have shared ideas and good practices with IPA in the past, and this visit is further proof of the trusted and productive relationship our organisations enjoy.”
IPA has previously helped to take ENISA’s work to wider audiences by translating the Agency’s Cloud Computing report into Japanese. As well as helping knowledge exchange, this action helped pave the way for discussions in between security experts across the globe.
