TOKYO (PRWEB) June 23, 2020
Corporate cybersecurity is broadly categorized into "Internal Security" and "Web Security", and in recent years it has become a serious issue, especially in the field of "web security", where many problems directly related to corporate management risks occur due to cyber-attacks. And despite the high risk of personal information leaks due to cyber-attacks, corporate awareness and countermeasures tend to be inadequate. Of the top 10 incidents (*1) related to personal information leaks in 2018, eight were found to be caused by unauthorized access, and the number of leaks in those eight incidents alone accounted for a total of 2,300,859, or about 40% or more of the total number of personal information leaks (5,613,797).
If a company suffers damage from a cyber-attack, such as the leakage of personal information, it can lead to a decline in sales opportunities and stock prices, as well as damage to its brand image, which can have a variety of effects on the company's business activities.
