In the press review of Wednesday, June 30, we will discuss: Japanese cybersecurity, the arrest of a man on the run and the continuation of the investigation into an accident that claimed the lives of two children.
The England-based International Institute for Strategic Studies says in a report that Japanese abilities in terms of cybersecurity and cyberattack presents strong gaps. The country is in the bottom third of the countries studied with Iran or Indonesia. This result stems from military agreements between Japan and the United States who provide protection from the country. This situation should not change, the Japan being constrained by the Constitution and its limits in terms of offensive military capabilities.
