Experts have warned about the possibility of cyber-attacks by those seeking to cause havoc during the highly disputed Tokyo Summer Olympics. During the COVID-19 pandemic, global tensions have increased after a year of growing cyber-attacks on many organizations. There are some worries as well.

He also warned the media that “Any nation-state that is not aligned with Japan may see an opportunity here to try to embarrass Japan through a cyberattack.”
