Episode 07: Operation Rugby Daemon

Cybersecurity is a rapidly changing and ever-evolving landscape. There are endless ways an individual or group can be taken advantage of, and the best way to protect oneself against these threats is to practice responding to new risks and attacks and to prepare for a range of situations. That is why last year, Sasakawa USA in cooperation with Keio University held “Operation Rugby Daemon,” a tabletop exercise that simulated a major cyberattack during the 2019 Rugby World Cup. In this episode of Asia on Air, Lin Wells II and Rick Ledgett, two participants of the Operation Rugby Daemon exercise, stopped by to share with us their responses to the tabletop exercise as well as their thoughts on how the cybersecurity community is poised to deal with threats such as phishing e-mails and state sponsored cyberattacks.

Episode 03: Ambassador James Zumwalt remembers 3/11

Join us for Episode 3 of Asia on Air as we sit down with Sasakawa USA CEO Ambassador James Zumwalt to discuss the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, which changed the face of Japan six years ago this week, on March 11, 2011. When the disaster struck, Amb. Zumwalt was serving as Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo, where he coordinated the United States’ support for the Japanese Government’s response to the crisis. In this conversation, Amb. Zumwalt recounts the days and moments leading up to the earthquake, the immediate reaction, and longer term management needs. He covers everything from how the Embassy managed to field tens of thousands of inquiries from worried families of Americans living in Japan to the U.S. decision to keep the Embassy open as a hub for information and expertise on health concerns related to the nuclear crisis. What were some of the challenges of the disaster, and how did the crisis ultimately bring Japan and the U.S. closer together?...
