Japan's cyber-security minister has 'never used a computer'


"I find it unbelievable that someone who is responsible for cyber-security measures has never used a computer"





Tell me this isn't great. I mean it isn't, but it just IS. How could this have possibly have happened? Was there no vetting process? Was the fact that this fellow didn't have an email address a problem? And he's supposed to keep the Tokyo Olympics from being hacked? (From The BBC)
Yoshitaka Sakurada made the admission to a committee of lawmakers.
"Since I was 25 years old and independent I have instructed my staff and secretaries. I have never used a computer in my life," he said, according to a translation by the Kyodo news agency.
The 68-year-old was appointed to his post last month.
His duties include overseeing cyber-defence preparations for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Encouraging.
