Council of Anti-Phishing Japan Joins the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign

To raise cybersecurity and cybercrime awareness in Japan during Information Security Awareness Month and beyond, the Council of Anti-Phishing Japan joined the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Messaging Convention to bring the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. cybersecurity campaign to Japan as a permanent public awareness resource promoted jointly by government and industry.

The organization will work to promote cybersecurity awareness at the individual user level in Japan -- and to promote the use of the Messaging Convention’s STOP. THINK. CONNECT. slogan and associated logo as well as its cybersecurity messaging assets suite.

The campaign has been adopted by dozens of multinational corporations, NGOs and, to date, four national government ministries in addition to Japan. Those are: the United States’ Department of Homeland Security; Public Safety Canada of Canada; Panama’s La Autoridad Nacional para la Innovación Gubernamental; and Paraguay’s Secretaría Nacional de Tecnologías de la Información y Comunicación.

Messaging Convention co-founder APWG Secretary General Peter Cassidy said, “The agreement with the council brings the campaign, at last, to Asia and unites us all in our efforts to make cyberspace a safe, governable dimension for the cultivation of our shared culture and commerce.”

Kentaro Yamamoto of the Council of Anti-Phishing Japan (JPCERT/CC) said, “The Council of Anti-Phishing Japan would like to support campaigns which share the same objective to save consumers from malicious online activities (such as APWG). CAP believes that the message of STOP. THINK. CONNECT. is simple and clear enough to be understood by general public including children. In February 2014, as ‘Information Security Awareness Month’, we work intensively on awareness-raising towards ‘Information Security’ by offering seminars and conferences to public.”

Michael Kaiser, executive director of the National Cyber Security Alliance, co-founder of that helped found the STOP. THINK. CONNECT campaign, said, "Global adoption of the message is accelerating representing a continued validation of the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. message as online safety message for citizens worldwide.

The convention’s logo and slogan and advisory suite were established by a number of US-based industrial powerhouses, collaborating with the APWG and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA) in an unprecedented effort in 2009 to unify online safety messaging. To date, more than 100 commercial enterprises and NGOs have adopted the campaign worldwide.

The Memorandum of Understanding signed with the Council of Anti-Phishing Japan for promotion of the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. campaign is the first that the messaging convention has entered into with a national government agency from Asia.

ABOUT the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Messaging Convention

STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ is the first-ever coordinated global cybersecurity awareness message to help all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online. The message was created by an unprecedented coalition of private companies, nonprofits and government organizations. The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) and National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) in 2009 led the effort to find a unified online safety message that could be adopted across public and private sectors. The Messaging Convention’s goal is to help every human being on the Internet understand not only the risks that come with using the Internet, but also the importance of practicing safe online behavior.
