    0

    TOKYO: Japan held a government-wide cyber security drill on Tuesday in a bid to improve coordination among public agencies and major businesses, as Tokyo prepares to host the 2020 Summer Olympics. The mock cyber attack for the first time brought together 21 government departments and firms in 10 business sectors, including utilities, banking and aviation. The drill comes as Internet security comes back into focus after the spectacular failure of the Tokyo-based MtGox Bitcoin exchange following a half-billion-dollar theft of the virtual currency, which it blamed on computer hackers.
