The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has expanded the scope of reporting communication failures.
As the impact of communication failures on society increases with the progress of digitalization, we request reports even if signs of failure are found, and the aim is to prevent large-scale failures.
On the 14th, a meeting of experts from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, which is reviewing the communication failure reporting system, compiled an interim report.
According to it, ▽ In order to prevent large-scale disability, even if signs of disability are found, it should be requested to report to the country.
In addition, the criteria for reporting will be clarified for the communication business between companies, including the cloud business.
On top of that, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications will consider necessary revisions to the law so that companies other than telecommunications companies will be required to report on the meeting of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications to verify communication failures.
On June 8th, a failure occurred in the network service of an American IT company that develops cloud business, and websites such as major media in Japan, Europe and the United States were temporarily unavailable for viewing. The impact on society is increasing, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications wants to strengthen measures against communication failures.
