Cybersecurity and The Double-Edged Sword of Social Media

How it can help, and hurt, your business and brand

Social media has become the platform for businesses to engage users, clients and customers. It is estimated companies will spend $35.98 billion this year, representing 16.0% of all digital ad spending globally. One facet of SNS that is rearing its ugly head these days is the damage and negative impact it can have on your business as we can see in the news everyday. Both individuals and organizations get their identity hijacked, leading to misuse, abuse, defamation and often financial consequences for the victim. Just a simple thing like connecting your smartphone to an open and free WiFi point to check in at your Facebook account could be the opportunity for an attacker to get in and start messing around with your corporate computer system! There are a number of simple things to watch out for that can make a major difference to your private and corporate cybersecurity when properly handled.  

So how to protect and prepare yourself and your business for possible negative SNS influence on your business? At this Knowledge Evening event, we will assemble a panel of SNS experts to identify these possible dangers and discuss what companies, and individuals, can and should do to protect themselves - both preemptively and in a damage control scenario. Sharing their experiences and leading the discussions will be Mr. Keiron Cashell from SCCJ corporate member GplusMedia, and Keith Martin and Anti Tuomi from FCCJ corporate member F-Secure.

And there will be plenty of time for questions and discussions, mingle and networking with drinks and some food before we start, all of which is at the core of a Knowledge Evening.

 Date:              Tuesday February 21st, 2017

Time:              18:30-20:30

Venue:           Embassy of Sweden

The Key to a Successful Interview Process:

Recruit People, Not CVs!

Learn how IKEA Japan hires people to grow their business

(英語の下に日本語の概要があります)

We are happy to announce the second HR Knowledge Evening this time on the theme "The Key to a Sucessful Interview Process" in response to the great feedback we received from the previous event October 20th last year regarding "How to use your Brand and Corporate Values to Recruit Talent".

Alex Bruehlmann, Leadership & Talent Manager at IKEA Japan, our Key Note Speaker this time, together with our panel of experienced recruiters, i.e. Oscar Lundin from EnWorld, Karim Hakam from Morgan McKinley, and Johan Larsson from Robert Walters, will be sharing their recruiting and hiring experiences, this time on the very difficult subject: "How to structure and organise the candidate interview process to make sure you get not just A Person for the job but the Right Person for the job?"

As Alex explains: "At IKEA, we believe in people. We are not looking for CVs or track records but for down-to-earth, straightforward colleagues who want to create a better everyday life for the many people. IKEA's mindset to gather co-workers who share a common set of values has an impact on how we recruit. Our processes – for external as well as internal hiring – are designed with the purpose to establish a long-term relationship between our company and our co-workers. Involving the right stakeholders at the right time is one of the most crucial aspects to secure successful recruitment".  And IKEA knows that this approach works: Today, IKEA has more than 170'000 co-workers all around the world – around 3000 of them in Japan – and every month, more are joining in.

And there will be plenty of time for questions and discussions, and mingle and networking with drinks and some food both before and after the seminar, all of which is the core of an SCCJ Knowledge Evening. 

Date:              Thursday March 16th, 2017

Time:              18:30-20:30

Venue:           Embassy of Sweden

Cost:              Members 3,000 yen, Non-members 4,000 yen.

北欧商工会議所コラボセミナー:人材開発に関するナレッジ・イブニ

優れた人材を見抜く面接の秘訣:

 履歴書ではなく本人の素質で採用すべき!

 事業発展に欠かせないイケアの雇用方針

 

2017年3月16日 18:30-20:30

 

昨年10月20日に開催された人材開発に関するナレッジ・イブニング「企業のブランド・価値を効果的に人材発掘に活用する方法(How to use your Brand and Corporate Values to Recruit Talent)」に対する皆様の高評価を受け、第2弾「優れた人材を見抜く面接の秘訣」を開催する運びとなりました。

イケア・ジャパン株式会社のAlex Bruehlman(Leadership & Talent Manager)による講演を中心に、実績のある人材採用担当者らがパネリストとして自身の経験をもとに今回のテーマを掘り下げていきます。パネリストにはOscar Lundin (EnWorld)、Karim Hakam (Morgan McKinley)、Johan Larsson (Robert Walters)を予定しています。「単に求人を埋めるのではなく、求人に対して適切な人材を見抜き・雇用するためにはどのようにして面接を構成し実施するべきか」という非常に複雑な課題について参加者の皆様と共に考えていきたいと思います。

「イケアでは人を信じています。輝かしい職歴や実績ではなく、多くの人々のためによりよい生活を作り出していきたいという情熱を持った同僚を求めているのです。イケアのモットーとも言えるこの信念を共有できる人材を見つけるというポイントが新規雇用の軸となっています。イケアと従業員の間で長期にわたる関係を築いていくことを目標としています。適切な人材を獲得するためには適切な関係者を適切なタイミングで関わらせることが重要です」とAlex氏は説明します。世界中でイケアの従業員として働く17万人以上の人々(日本には約3,000人)が同社の雇用方針の有効性を立証しており、彼らの仲間は日々増え続けています。

Alex氏による講演は英語で行われますが、パネルディスカッションや質疑応答の際には司会者等を通じて日本語で質問もしていただけます。また、セミナー前後にも集まった方々でお気軽に交流していただける場となっています。飲み物・軽食(立食)のご用意もありますので、カジュアルな雰囲気の中でぜひ様々な情報交換の場としてご活用ください。

日時:   2017年3月16日(木曜日) 18:30-20:30
会場:   スウェーデン大使館
費用:   商工会議所会員 3,000円、非会員 4,000円

Date & Time : March 2nd (Wednesday) 20:00~
Venue           : Legato, Shibuya

Don't worry if you are a bit late, we'll be enjoying ourselves hanging out around the bar!


If you are new to the concept "Little Saturday": One explanation (favoured by SCCJ Scretariat) is that in the "old days" of Sweden, partying was traditionally done on Saturdays, probably so you could have one whole day to recover before it was Monday again. Some people however, and their number grew quickly once the concept was establihed, couldnt wait until next Saturday so they started to have smaller parties also on a weekday evening in the middle of the week, which was Wednesday. So "Little Saturday" = "Wednesday with a right to Party". And now you know the rest of the story!

Event Overview:

On September 8, 2013 our dream became a reality when Tokyo was awarded the 2020 Olympics. We had the solid backing of many ACCJ members by providing your time and effort to promote Japan’s bid. Through special events and activities with Olympic athletes, the international schools and the backing of other official dignitaries, Japan built its successful presentation -- finalized in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Now we are continuing that momentum with a Nomu-nication happening scheduled for March 6 at the Swedish Embassy. 

Long time Nomu-nication organizers Dave Wouters and Tiger Oga invite you to join our Nordic friends: Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland with the objective of gaining more ideas and enthusiasm for this unique time in Japan’s history with sports.

Music provided by the Waseda Dixieland Band.

Neal will address how to overcome common hurdles in the hiring process including:

  • Internal alignment on role requirements
  • Effective interview process that reduce time to hire and keep hot candidates engaged
  • Salary considerations
  • Counteroffer management
  • Candidate experience management to improve offer to acceptance rates
  • Onboarding and retention

Business Sweden will also hold a presentation about their studies, with some more focus on the Japan-Sweden situation titled "HR in Japan - The Top Challenges Seen from a Swedish Perspective".

After this presentation Oscar Lundin (Chairman of SCCJ's HR Committee) will present the result from the survey and open up for a discusson among all participants.

Networking and mingling will continue afterwards in the company of some light food and drinks.

VisionsandInsights

Visions & Insights is a new seminar initiative by SCCJ in cooperation with EIJS.
The objective is to hold three seminars per year, covering topics of interest for SCCJ members.

Our first speaker is Jacob Schlesinger, Senior Asia Economics Correspondent and Central Banks Editor Asia for The Wall Street Journal, and he will talk about
“An Abenomics Update: Off the Rails, or Full Steam Ahead”


After a robust start, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Japan recovery plan hit a rough patch over the summer. Economic data was worse than expected, while economists and investors roundly criticized his structural reforms as vague and insufficient. Beneath the surface, though, there’s plenty of progress. As Adam Posen, president of the Peterson Institute for International Economics and a long-time Japan watcher, has said: things may not be going well, but they are going right.”
We’ll explore both sides of the issue: what’s going well, and what’s not, what’s going right and what’s not. We’ll also handicap the big decisions that lie ahead: whether Mr. Abe will proceed with the next sales tax increase, and whether the Bank of Japan will add to its stimulus program.

 

Mr. Jacob Schlesinger
The Wall Street Journal
Jacob SchlesingerAbout the speaker:  Jacob Schlesinger is Senior Asia Economics Correspondent and Central Banks Editor, Asia for The Wall Street Journal, based in Tokyo. Mr. Schlesinger has lived in Japan for a total of nine years, first from 1989 to 1994, and then again starting in 2010. Before taking on his current position in February, 2014, he worked for four years as The Wall Street Journal’s Tokyo bureau chief, overseeing coverage, among other things, of the 2011 triple disaster, and the economic, diplomatic, and defense reforms launched by Prime Minister Abe. In between Tokyo stints, Mr. Schlesinger was based in Washington, D.C. where, most recently, he was the Journal’s deputy bureau chief, working with reporters covering the White House, Congress, and domestic policy. As a Washington reporter, he covered economics and politics. In 2003, Mr. Schlesinger was a member of a team of Journal reporters awarded the Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting for the “What’s Wrong” series about the causes and consequences of the late-1990s financial bubble.

After finishing his first tour in Japan, he authored the book “Shadow Shoguns: The Rise and Fall of Japan’s Postwar Political Machine,” which was published by Simon & Schuster. While writing his book, he was a visiting fellow at Stanford University’s Asia-Pacific Research Center. Mr. Schlesinger joined The Journal in 1986 in Detroit. A native of East Lansing, Mich., he received a bachelor’s degree in economics from Harvard College.

Visions & Insights: Dr. Gerhard Fasol speaking on "Changing the way Japanese corporations are managed" http://www.sccj.org/index.php/all-events/events/visions-a-insights-gerhard-fasol-2016-10-06?format=html http://www.sccj.org/index.php/all-events/events/visions-a-insights-gerhard-fasol-2016-10-06?format=html

VisionsandInsights

                Visions & Insights is a seminar initiative by EIJS in cooperation with SCCJ.


Our speaker this time is Dr. Gerhard Fasol on the theme

Changing the way Japanese corporations are managed:

Can it make Japanese iconic corporations great again?

 

Gerhard talking

Abstract.

   The Executive Management Board and the Supervisory Board are normally independent and composed of different people - except in Japan. In Japan traditionally Executive Management Board and the Supervisory Board are one and the same, ie the executives of traditional Japanese companies supervise themselves - no surprise that the CEO seldom fires himself!

   It is obvious that such self-supervision has big disadvantages, and may be one of the major reasons for Japan's weak economic growth, and several recent corporate scandals. Companies in basically all other countries are managed by an Executive Management Board, which is supervised by a Supervisory Board, which approves or vetoes all major decisions of the company, and evaluates the performance of the Executive Managers, including the Chief Executive/CEO, and if necessary fires executives including the CEO, and selects and approves the new CEO.

   To remedy this problem with the governance of Japanese corporations, Japan's Government, the Tokyo Stock Exchange, and the Financial Services Agency have been changing the rules to improve the supervision of Japanese companies. 

   Dr. Gerhard Fasol is one of a microscopic number of foreigners who is an independent Director on the Management and Supervisory Board, and also a Member of the Audit Board of a stock market listed Japanese corporation, and he will talk from several years of first-hand experience of how Japanese companies are supervised, which changes are on the way, and which further improvements are necessary to improve the management and supervision of Japanese corporations.


Date:             Thursday October 6th, 2016

Time:            6.30 p.m. – 7.00 p.m. Drink & Snack (served before lecture)

CHARITY NIGHT FOR THE PHILIPPINES http://www.sccj.org/index.php/all-events/events/charity-night-for-the-philippines-2?format=html http://www.sccj.org/index.php/all-events/events/charity-night-for-the-philippines-2?format=html

Philippines
A Charity Event will be held at Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo in support for the victims of typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda in the Philippines.
Below is the invitation from the organizers.

Monster typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda hit the Philippines last week, catching many of poorest areas of the country unprepared.
300km/hr winds and a tsunami-like storm surge carried away entire villages, leaving thousands without homes, isolated from their families, and in many cases unable to find out who of their families survived the catastrophe.
The pictures remind us of the Tsunami in Japan.

We may not be able to return lost friends and loved ones, but we can do our part restore hope to those who have lost it. HELP and SUPPORT is needed.

We have chosen to support All Hands Volunteers, which has been operating on the ground in some of the worst hit areas since the Bohol Earthquake over a month ago. This has given All Hands a head start in setting up the logistics and personnel necessary to help those in need.

It's past Halloween and not yet Christmas, and we felt that we needed something to spice up the void in between, - with some friendly and laid-back networking. We understand that it is a busy period for everyone, so instead of setting up a venue and taking registrations, we have opted for a casual After Work Evening together with our Nordic colleagues and friends from the chambers of Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland.

SCCJ, together with our Nordic sister-chambers, invites all members to "After Work at the Balcony".

Details:

Date & Time: Wednesday, 20 November, 19.00-
Venue: Balcony Bar & Restaurant, Izumi Garden Tower 3F [MAP]
Cost: Cash-on system (pay to the bar for what you eat and drink)
Registration: No registration needed


Balcony Bar & Restaurant is conveniently located within the premises of Izumi Garden Tower, midways of the long outside escalators.
There is a cozy lounge-area inside, and if you are one of the people who thinks the temperature feels just like a Nordic summer, there are tables and chairs on the outside as well.

Please “pop” in after work for some drinks and snacks.
Good news – Happy Hour until 20:00!

Hope to see many happy faces on November 20th!

Time:                     14:00-15:30

Background:

Negotations have been going on since 2008 and the purpose is to improve the movements of persons between the social insurances systems in Japan and Sweden. The agreement is aiming at securing a certain social insurance protection as well as preventing that rights, eg pension, gained in one country is not lost when moving to the other country. Today Swedes and other foreign nationals working in Japan, and their companies, are by law required to pay into the Japanese pension system without getting any pension when moving from Japan.

Managing Up - A Key Factor For Career Success http://www.sccj.org/index.php/all-events/events/managing-up-a-key-factor-for-career-success-1?format=html http://www.sccj.org/index.php/all-events/events/managing-up-a-key-factor-for-career-success-1?format=html

This is a workshop arranged by ACCJ - "Women in Business Committee"
SCCJ members are invited to participate.
Please use the download link for application. The application should be sent directly as per below details.

Event Overview:

Many of us are looking for a faster way up the career ladder and we invest considerable energy into honing our leadership skills. But how often do we spend time focusing in the other direction? Managing up is an often over-looked element of career success, yet building a great relationship with your manager makes obvious sense and is clearly in your interests.

ACCJ Women in Business Co-Chair Elizabeth Handover will lead a dynamic, interactive workshop on managing up. Managing up means focusing on working well with your manager to obtain good results for you, him/her and the organization. Meeting his/her needs will give better business results and this win-win partnership is more likely to open up opportunities for you to be given more interesting work and more responsibility.

Join this workshop to discover the secrets for successfully managing upwards and to experience interactive exercises for increasing your skills towards a faster, smoother route to the top.
