Keio University announced on November 1st, 2016 to launch the world’s first InterNational Cyber Security Center of Excellence (INCS-CoE) with U.S., UK, and Japanese universities. For the inauguration period, Professor Jun Murai became the Chair. It started as loosely coupled umbrella organization by the initial members kicked off, including Keio University, Stanford University, Northeastern University, Imperial College London, University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, the University of Tokyo, Waseda University, Tokyo Denki University, and Institute of Information Security (IISEC).

INCS-CoE is the backbone of International Cybersecurity Symposia series at Keio University, which completed the 9th Symposium on December 11-12, 2019.

There are 25 international leading cybersecurity related universities in the U.S., UK, Japan, and expending to Israel, Indonesia, and further Australia during the course of expansion in the last 3 years.

July 2019, new INCS-CoE Charter was ratified internationally by the 6 U.S., UK, and Japanese university Presidents to govern the international activities and projects by more formalized manner for globally sustainable organization. It is strengthening the core of the organization rooted deeper while expanding wider to the cybersecurity community of the world.
