Invigorating Japan through IT
Today, preventing IT trouble is an issue for society as a whole. IPA aims to realize a secure IT-based society
through improved security measures and software development.
A skilled workforce is integral to improving Japanís international competitiveness in IT. IPA continues to
cultivate human resources through holding information processing engineer exams, adopting IT engineer
expertise standards and collaborating with the industrial and academic sectors.
Small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the power source behind Japanese industry. IPA supports
the increased competitiveness of IT-related SMEs and provides information on improving the use of IT in SMEs.
IT networks now routinely cross international borders.
IPA works to deepen cooperation with other nations in security measures and to bring Japanese technology and procedures up to international standards.
