<p>The Olympics is a potential hotspot for cybercrime. Even though the games will be spectator-less, there will be a flux of people coming to Tokyo: journalists, foreign officials, and, of course, athletes will add to the 117 million active internet users in Japan. Criminals will take advantage if people are not protecting themselves. To keep criminals at bay, there must be significant focus on identity access management. By taking identity governance a step further and employing identity analytics, it will allow Tokyo 2020 to detect rogue activity quickly – resulting in a safer experience for all.</p>
