Japan – Supply Chain Cyber Security Virtual Pitch Event Call for Applications

British Embassy Tokyo will organise a Supply Chain Cyber Security Virtual Pitch Event and calls for applications from UK cybersecurity firms with a strong capability in this area interested in participating in the event.

Date/Time:  25 March 2021, 8:00-9:30 (UK time)/17:00-18:30 (Japan time)

The offer: Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has seen increasing and more sophisticated cybercrimes targeted at supply chains. Japan is no exception, with leading firms in the automotive and defence industries amongst others falling as victims to cyber attacks that have disrupted supply chains. This has led to increased interest in solutions to this challenge and prompted a cross-industry initiative to address this critical thread to business.  

The pitch event, together with the UK-Japan Supply Chain Cyber Security Webinar on 23 March, will be part of the Partnering with Japan – Spring ’21 Free Trade Agreement series which aims to promote the UK-Japan industry partnership under the recently signed Free Trade Agreement. The pitch session will provide an opportunity for UK cyber security companies to introduce their innovative technology and solutions to a Japanese industry audience and to explore business opportunities in Japan.  

Fee: Free of charge

Places: 6

Accepted applicants will be notified by 26 February.

What to expect from the opportunity:

  • Opportunity to pitch to a business audience in Japan (via a recorded pitch for 5 mins, provided prior to the event) and to engage with them via a live Q&A session.
  • Contact details where agreed with Japanese audience
  • Promotion to local traditional and social media
