Biography

 

Kazuo Takaragi obtained BS and MS degree from Kyushu Institute of Technology and Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1975 and 1977 respectively.  In 1977, he joined Hitachi, Ltd. At Systems Development Laboratory in Hitachi, he engaged in the research and development of system safety and security. In 1886, he obtained a doctor degree in safety engineering from the University of Tokyo. During the fall semester in 2007, he served as a visiting professor for Freiburg University in Germany.  In 2011, he became the senior chief scientist at Yokohama Laboratory, Hitachi, Ltd.  In 2012, he joined National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan.  Currently, he is a Principal Research Manager of Information Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in AIST.  He also serves as a guest professor of Chuo University. He wrote books such as "Practice, policy and law of blockchain," Chuokeizai-sha Inc., “Information Security,” Kindai Kagaku Sha Co.,Ltd., "Firewall," Shokodo Co. Ltd., and "Internet Security," Ohmusha, Ltd., all in Japanese.
