Japan on Olympic hacking mission to test utilities, trains, telcos
“Japan will from next year conduct mock hacking exercises with governments including the United States and private sector organisations ahead of the 2020 Olympic games.
The effort will be run out of a new penetration testing arm to be created in 2017 charged with identifying vulnerabilities in physical control systems that could lead to real-world damage during the Games.
It will include critical infrastructure operators including power, gas, and chemical utilities. Telcos and transport are almost universally included in security analysis of critical infrastructure.”
