to the JPCERT/CC blog. JPCERT is the national CERT (Computer Emergency
Response Team) for Japan. We cover a fair amount of ground, including incident
response, software vulnerability handling, malware analysis, running
sensor networks, overseeing the Anti-Phishing Council of Japan (Japanese), running
training courses, and lots besides. You can see more about what we do
at the JPCERT home page.
To introduce myself, my name is Chris Horsley. I'm an Australian
who has been working at JPCERT for the last few years now. It's been
particularly interesting for me to see some of the similarities and
differences between the security landscape of Japan compared to
Australia and other Western countries. For those who don't speak
Japanese or who aren't familiar with Japanese culture, there can be lots
that goes on in Japan that doesn't receive much coverage in the foreign
and other JPCERT staff are aiming to close some of the gap with this
blog, bringing security trends in Japan to light for English-speaking
audiences. As well as talking about interesting security news from
Japan, we'll also be talking about analysis and activities happening at
JPCERT, along with some of the interesting cultural differences
that exist here.
