But a staff member of this company found that the handbag containing the USB flash drive was missing when he returned home after eating out on the 21st. The staff member immediately went to look for it, but because he could not find it in the end, he chose to call the police. According to reports, the lost USB flash drive has a password, and the stored data is also encrypted.
A person in charge of the Amagasaki city government apologized on the 23rd and emphasized that similar things will be avoided in the future. In addition, a citizen of Amagasaki said in an interview, “If personal information is leaked, it will easily lead to fraud incidents. The city government must take it seriously.” On Japanese social networks, many Japanese netizens criticized Amagasaki for being careless. Think that a USB flash drive that stores important information cannot be carried around.
