Whether it is the role of government in compelling tech companies to unlock technology or provide access to data, the controversy swirling around Secretary Clinton's emails or the frustration at having one's email account hacked, finding the right balance between privacy, security and convenience has become increasingly difficult in our digital world. Silicon Valley companies lay both at the heart of the controversy and will also be key to a solution that will certainly require the Bay Area's unparalleled technological prowess and entrepreneurship.

How economically powerful, democratic nations like the US and Japan face these challenges today will have long-lasting socio-economic implications for the world. The issue is timely. Japan has just passed an historic new privacy law and is working to implement it. Moreover, it faces considerable cybersecurity risks as it prepares for the 2020 Olympics. The US will have a new Administration in five months that will need to tackle quickly this set of issues which relate to fight against terrorism as well as the country's global competitiveness.

Despite the fact that the US and Japan come at these challenges from very different social and historical perspectives, can they find some common ground to protect citizens' privacy and data while maintaining an open internet and a dynamic competitive market place?

Please come engage with high level experts from Japan and the US in cybersecurity and privacy protection as they discuss the latest trends in Japan and the US. William Saito, currently a senior policy adviser to Prime Minister Abe and working closely with the Abe Administration on a number of initiatives to spur innovation, including in cybersecurity, and Mark Krotoski, Morgan Lewis partner, is one of the America's foremost legal expert on cybersecurity and privacy protection, bringing a wealth of experience from his decades working in the government at both the state and federal level and in private practice.

$10 - $20.
