Ÿ  Member Introduction

[Akitomo Yamamoto, Chief Director]

In 1985, I joined the world of information security, and became a member of JSSM in 1986. The first words I encountered were "security: a management issue." This meaning is such as; even excellent techniques alone cannot realize information security as it depends on people who operate them in organizations.  

[Kunio Okayasu, Vice Director]

Let me try. If my memory serves me right, last time I introduced myself was may be five years ago. That was one hour presentation in Phoenix, Arizona and my talk sailed out smoothly with a couple of jokes. But the very first time I did was Corvallis, Oregon in 1970. I introduced myself and defended the right of Palestine people on the west bank. When I finished my speech, a lady came up to me and asked for a copy of my speech draft. I gave it to her and she thanked me for that. My first encounter with the Middle East on the Pacific North West.

[Masahiro Kimura]

In my early twenties, have started my career in the US Corporation. It was 1967, when was also the time that matters gsecurityh as really mandatory issues. The years of 1960fs were the age of gStrong USAh and everything was valuable for me to learn for my very basics in this industry. The word gUS Standardh did mean mostly same as gGlobal Standardh. Therefore, have learned gSecurityh as global standard specification.

Expanded my business territories to the area other than US since 1991, had started my career as consultancy services. The cultural and conceptual differences were yielding to my business at the starting. Especially, cultural differences were big issues and also the area of difficulties too.

Coming back to the future such as 2010 or later, the word, gSecurityh may become far more popular and valuable in the every business segment. It is said gThe lost decadeh on the economicsf side. On the other hand, gSecurityh might have called as gThe gaining decadeh. Those will also the chances of mine for another quarter century of business years.
