NTT have no idea about security... I remember once I went to their secure server room and they left me alone with 1000 other machines all unlocked...

That's so funny, bet the manuals for working the security system are expansive requiring hours of study, a test. All for naught. But they passed the test. And that's important.

Anybody working here in IT knows Japan is doomed regarding security, the working culture simply doesn't match the computer age however high the education is.

You need to face facts regarding IT security not hope for the best & look away. The systems hosted here have been and are a goldmine for hackers and people will suffer from it in the years to come. Not mentioning all the work legally or illegally outsourced to China ...

The Defense ministry has had many security breaches in the past so this is not surprising. It's really idiotic that these people have been entrusted to defend Japan.

Why should we care? We don’t have any enemies. Just America is the most hated country on this planet and occupies 3.5% of our land for military purposes which taxpayers pay for.

Japan has no enemies? Really, try telling then why is China, SK, and Russia claiming lands and waterways, constantly encroaching almost daily when it doesn't belong to them.

You'd be surprised. Security issues are rampant in web systems in most developed nations.

Japan isn’t really any better or worse than anywhere else to be honest. As with most countries, social engineering is where Japan gets hit hardest. Doesn’t matter how good your digital security is if you have employees who fall for phishing attempts.

Have you asked North Korea about that? You might not consider anyone as your enemy but that doesn't mean nobody hates you.

Shocking. Japan seems to lead the world in being a cyber victim. Maybe best to stick to pencil/paper.
