Japanese Cybersecurity Minister Shows Lack of Knowledge on Computers
The New York Times reported this week that Japan’s cybersecurity minister showed a tremendous lack of knowledge when it comes to computers and related technologies.
In a parliamentary session, cyber chief Yoshitaka Sakurada said that he had no use for computers since he handed off tasks requiring computers to his subordinates. According to the report, Sakurada also appeared to be confused by basic computer security questions.
When asked about the risks posed by the use of USB drives in nuclear power facilities, such as the incident in Kiev involving the Industroyer malware, Sakurada merely said that he didn’t know the details very well and would have an expert answer it instead.
