Japan Society of Security Management (JSSM)



JSSM was organized in 1986. At that time, it was, in fact, the only academic organization that explicitly included the word gSecurityh in its title. The purpose of the organization is to contribute to IT and network systemes security. JSSM covers many approaches to solving security problems from a managerial point of view, and providing solutions in the area of risk management.
