[Nov 1st 2017] "Rise of Ransomware is Stopping Businesses. How can your organization Stay Resilient?"

55

Speaker:  Brent Reichow
Co-founder & CEO, Blueshift Data Protection

For years extortion has been a successful way for criminals to coerce money from victims. Extortion still exists but recently criminals have found a much more efficient way to extract the money - ransomware. Ransomware by definition is a form of malware that stops or limits access to systems, either by locking the screen or by locking your files. This is typically done with an encryption algorithm known only to the criminal. Money is demanded and until it’s paid the victim cannot use or gain access to their data.

[Jul 27th 2017] Leveraging Artificial Intelligence to detect New, Emerging Cyber Threats in Realtime

52

Speaker:  John Kirch
Regional Director North Asia - Darktrace

In today's world with hyper-connected work environments and the growth of cloud, IoT, mobile technologies and other technologies have created a greater exposure on security risks. The large volume of connected devices feeding into networks provide a real scenario for cyber criminals with lots of new and plentiful access points to target. Furthermore, security on these access points is often deficient. Most organizations don't want to believe their companies would be subject to security threats or any form of exposure.

Today’s evolving cyber threats such as the recent ransomware attack called “WannaCry” demand a new approach to cyber-defense. These threats could only grow and get worse as hackers exploit newer methods as modern technology is released. Most organizations are too afraid to reveal their real losses for fear of credibility and name loss.

In this presentation our speaker will talk about the role of artificial intelligence combating cyber security threats.27 Jul 2017 - Event Picture 1

But many Japanese small and medium businesses fail to execute some of the most basic practices.

[Apr 20th 2017] India as an Innovation Center: Is there a case?

50

Speaker:  Sriram Venkataraman.
Independent Business and Technology Advisor.

India is attracting attention in the business world. With China showing signs of slowing down and the anxiety around overall global economic growth, India is now in the spotlight. A lot of this has to do with the large population, the increasing spend power amongst the emerging middle class. Some corporations have also decided to invest in building capacity in India to ensure that an efficient local supply chain is available to capture the emerging, growing market.

This approach is now getting a much needed and serious support from the Make in India program launched by the government of India. This is the conventional view of India as a large, promising market and as a manufacturing base.

Our presenter makes a case for a relatively less known and under appreciated view of India. India as an Innovation Center. India possesses a unique combination of numbers, skills and an entrepreneurial mindset along with a strong diaspora enabling innovation of a different type and scale.

201506_Pieter_FrankenSpeaker:  Pieter B. Franken
Monex, Inc., CTO and Executive Managing Director SAFECAST Japan, Director and co-founder.

As the 5th anniversary just passed of the Great Tohoku Earthquake, Safecast was founded in the immediate aftermath of 3/11 Fukushima nuclear disaster as a non-profit relief project.

Safecast's goal is to provide open data about radiation to allow citizens to understand the safety of their direct environment. Safecast started in Japan and has become the largest global citizen science project measuring the environment globally. Safecast develops the methods and equipment to measure, and encourages volunteers to measure the radiation level around their neighbourhoods by either driving a unique sensor, known as the “bGeigie". The data collected is turned into very granular maps (typical 50 meter or better) and is published as free (open) data for use by individuals, researchers, governments and companies.

Reactive Inc - Data Scientist, Statistics & Decision Science.

Where to invest your money ? What do your customers want ? What is going on with the economy in China ? What’s the best road to take to work today ?

All of these questions are ultimately answered by performing computation on data, in essence “everything is computation”. With 90% of the world’s data being generated in the last two years it’s almost impossible for humans to answer these questions, and it’s getting harder.

If your employees aren’t growing they’re going! – Solution: Create an employee value proposition that focuses on unleashing, empowering & engaging leadership.

26

201405_Robert_E_PetersonSpeaker: Robert E. Peterson ("Bob-san")
President, Wickaboag Consulting Group, Inc.  Marketing & Communications Problem Solver

It is widely acknowledged by many business people - Japanese and non-Japanese - that Japanese companies and executives do not understand marketing.  As a result, marketing does not have a core function in the Japanese business model, and plays only a small role in corporate decision-making.  Mr. Peterson will reveal to us the many reasons why. Unless Japanese companies urgently embrace marketing they risk becoming (even) less competitive in the global marketplace.  This lack of marketing knowledge and skill affects foreign companies operating in Japan in terms of recruiting marketing talent into their Japan operations.

Most job seekers naively view Recruiters as the "Gatekeepers" to a treasure trove of jobs.

And why not? A recruiter has "all the answers", "tons of experience" and knows the industry like nobody's business: The client, the hiring manager , they do this for a living -- best of all, it won't cost you a thing.

Best of all, what possibly could go wrong?

[Mar. 20th, 2014] Unilateral Termination of Employees (due to their poor performance)

24

201403_Hideki_Thurgood_KanoSpeaker: Hideki Thurgood Kano
Corporate Lawyer and Author

There are very many employers that desire to put an end to the employment contract with an employee whose performance is poor.  Under the Japanese Employment Contract Act, however, it is awfully difficult for employers to try to unilaterally terminate employees, as a rule. Our speaker will focus upon the difficulty, associated with the poor performance of employees, as well as some risks that employers might have to run due to the unilateral termination (e.g., joining a labor union) on March 20th.  I will also try to cover some practical solution (making a payment of some monetary compensation whereby to induce employees to voluntarily resign), as well as administrative and housekeeping and procedural matters (such as the time and legal fees usually necessitated regarding a lawsuit, the Employment Tribunal, and collective bargaining sessions).  Our speaker will make this also an interactive session.

Stephen GivensSpeaker: Stephen Givens
Corporate Lawyer based in Japan

Earlier this year Softbank, Japan’s No. 3 mobile telecom operator, paid $22 billion for a 70% stake in Sprint Nextel, the No. 3 US mobile telecom company that has lost money every year since 2006. At this year’s annual shareholders meeting Masayoshi Son, Softbank’s founder and president, revealed that the Sprint acquisition is just the first step in a “New Big Dream” in which Softbank will overtake Apple as the world’s largest company by 2040 and dominate the world for the next 300 years with the stated goal of “Happiness for Everyone”. Softbank’s acquisition of Sprint is just the most recent example of decades of overseas acquisitions by domestically-minded Japanese companies which have proved to be triumphs of optimism over reality.

Original Dale Carnegie research has looked beyond the usual statistics of to what degree employees are engaged.  They have studied what are the emotional drivers of engagement.  Why does having more engaged employees matter?  Obviously motivation, loyalty, performance, retention of key staff, etc., are closely linked to how people feel about their organization.  The real performance drivers required to compete successfully in an increasingly global and relentless commercial world are of even greater interest.

Don’t worry we won’t be talking Information Technology this time, but employment and labor laws, more concretely what you should know and be careful about when getting a new job in Japan or what happens when you are being terminated. To manage a career today, employees are required to know more and more about their status, what they can and cannot do, and what they can ask from their employer. The economic crisis faced by Japan for more than 20 years has resulted in labor law becoming more and more complex.
