accident-prone society


Explanation:
Quoted http://www.kisdi.re.kr/kisdi/fp/kr/publication/selectResearc... :

Japanese IT Strategy Council defined the Japanese society as “accident-prone society (事故前提社會)” in Secure Japan 2009 (情報セキュリティ政策会議, 2009. 6), in that there exists no 100% secure cyber environment. The Council is coming up with diverse policy measures for minimizing cyber security risk.

Accident-assuming society


Explanation:
事故前提社会 probably means integrating safety-conscious design into various types of social infrastructure. In other words, designing buildings, cities and communication networks in such a way as to mitigate damage when a disaster strikes.

Therefore, I think something like "Accident-assuming society" or even "Accident prepared society" would be appropriate.
