The Japanese Ministry of Defence (MoD) on 26 March launched its cyber defence unit (CDU) to handle cyber attacks against the ministry and the Self-Defence Forces (SDF).

The unit, based at MoD headquarters in central Tokyo, comprises about 90 members from Ground, Maritime, and Air SDF.

The unit is under the defence minister's direct control and subject to the guidance and supervision of the SDF C4SC (command, control, communication, and computers systems command), which is in charge of maintenance and operation of the SDF's Defence Information Infrastructure (DII) system and Central Command System.

Members monitor MoD and SDF computer networks around the clock and respond in the event of a cyber attack.
