Enacting security measures against cyber attacks is growing increasingly important for everyone, from individuals and businesses to nations as a whole, Sasakawa USA Chairman and CEO Adm. Dennis  Blair said in an interview with NHK’s International News Report (国際報道).

“If [through cyber attacks] one country can learn about the defense posture of another country—military secrets—then of course it can benefit its own armed forces,” he said in the interview, which aired in the July 4, 2016 edition of the program.

「(サイバー攻撃によって)ある国が別の国の防衛体制や軍隊や軍の機密について知り得たならば、言うまでも無く自国の軍が有利になるでしょう。国家にも影響を与え、個人にも影響を与える。だからこそセキュリティーがますます重要になっているのです。」
