AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet 2016: Resilience

AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet 2016 has concluded. Thank you to everyone who attended, sponsored, exhibited, or helped in any way, shape or form. We look forward to seeing you all in 2017!

AFCEA Tokyo (東京) is honored to announce our next annual conference, AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet 2016 – our 10th anniversary of AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet events – will be held at The New Sanno Hotel on June 1-3, 2016. We are pleased to have selected “Resilience” as our theme for AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet 2016 as we continue to build off of the wonderful success we enjoyed in 2015. The idea of resilience extends the underlying framework of convergence and is perfectly relevant in so many contexts, ranging from cyber and technology, to the beautiful Japanese culture, ending with our small AFCEA Tokyo (東京) chapter.

Great Tokohu Earthquake 3/11

We are marking our 10th Anniversary of AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet events with the theme “Resilience” – in part to show our solidarity with the local Japanese community by honoring the five year anniversary of the tragic March 11 Great Tohoku Earthquake, the obvious connotations to IT and cyber security, and finally, to demonstrate the resilience of our old yet small AFCEA chapter.

Japan demonstrated extreme resilience in the immediate aftermath of this tragedy, and continues to display their resilience as a society and country while coming together to help so many people affected. The lack of resilience in IT, and especially with regards to cyber security, can destroy mission assurance and lead to failure. The idea of developing resilient network architectures and cyber defenses can allow an organization to overcome what would normally be a crippling cyber attack. Finally, AFCEA Tokyo (東京) Chapter #171 is one of the most resilient chapters in all of AFCEA. We continue to fight to grow our membership, increase local interest and participation in our educational opportunities, and attempt to drive AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet towards the greatest success of all: the best AFCEA event in Asia.

Our goal this year is to spark discussions about the use of resilience and its effects on society from these contexts. We will be hearing from the US and Japanese governments, militaries, industries, and academia. We are finalizing the agenda and will post the details as soon as they become available.


This year we have lined up a number of ways to participate real-time with AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet 2016, whether you will be attending, or watching the events unfold from overseas. We will be live-tweeting TechNet to the maximum extent possible, so hop over to twitter and follow @afceatokyo. During the keynote and panel sessions we expect to live broadcast using Periscope, a neat smartphone app that makes live video simple, from our @afceatokyo Periscope account. Finally, if you want to chat with other participants, or the AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet 2016 team, meet up with us on Tokyo Slack using either the web or smartphone versions of the app. Hope to see you there!
