Asia Pacific Computer Emergency Response Team (APCERT) is a regional community for Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) and Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) located in the Asia Pacific region.
This is the 14th Annual Conference since its establishment in 2003. JPCERT/CC, also as Secretariat for APCERT, is privileged to host the conference in Tokyo for the first time, and welcomes the members and guests in October, one of the most beautiful seasons in Japan.
With the sophistication and complexity of emerging cyber threats, it is more and more important for CERTs/CSIRTs to work together hand-in- hand to deal with incidents across the globe.
As a regional forum, APCERT aims to strengthen its partnership among members as a “borderless” community by enhancing information sharing and cooperation for incident response.
With an aim to perform “seamless” action among members for incident response,the community also focuses on capacity building for members through selected workshops and training programs.
APCERT hopes that the 2016 conference will be a venue to promote such a coherent state of the community.
