In 2014, using a program to collect data from Internet-connected devices in Japan, he investigated and reported that data on many web cameras, multifunction printers, and smart home control devices/HEMS were visible to anyone. He also tracked the whereabouts of stolen cryptocurrency on the blockchain in the Coincheck incident (2018), writing a full account of the criminal hack based on internal documents he had obtained.

Guest Keynote: A journalist's view of how targeted attacks are achieved "I'll tell you everything that happened then."

"It all started with one e-mail..."
That's a phrase I often hear regarding "targeted attacks," which are directed at a specific company or organization.
Is that the attacker's only way in?
Can businesses prevent cyber attacks by monitoring Internet activities?
The answers to these questions might lie in the surprising nature of cyber attackers.
In this session, I will discuss who cyber attackers really are, based on my newspaper's reporting on security incidents.
I will continue telling things from the eyes of a journalist, picking up from last year's summit.

Meet the analysts face to face.
