The Japanese government has announced its policy/strategy on cybersecurity, one of the most important emerging risk topics in foreign board rooms nowadays.

The Board Director Training Institute (BDTI) is a "public interest" nonprofit in Japan dedicated to training about directorship, corporate governance, and related management techniques. It is certified by the Japanese government to conduct these activities as a regulated nonprofit.
