TOKYO (PRWEB) September 10, 2020
The size of the domestic mail-order and e-commerce market in fiscal 2018 was approximately USD82 Billion, up 8.3% from the previous year, and has grown to nearly double the size of the 2009 market*1. In particular, the EC market continues to expand rapidly for both BtoB and BtoC, and in recent years the rate of use of e-commerce has increased due to a shift to online purchasing behavior as a result of the decrease in the number of stores due to the impact of the new coronavirus pandemic, as well as the lockdown keeping people from going out of their homes.
As the market is expected to expand further in the future, companies are expected to accelerate the expansion of services related to e-commerce.
While the rate of conversion to electronic commerce is increasing, there is still a risk of information leakage due to cyber-attacks, as these businesses have many opportunities to handle personal information. If a business is hit by a cyber-attack, it could result in compensation costs due to the release of personal information, damage to the brand image, and lost sales opportunities.
In addition, with the enactment of the revised Personal Information Protection Act on June 5, 2020, regulations and penalties relating to the protection of personal information have become more stringent, which has led to an increased focus on such measures to prevent the leakage of personal information.
As a result, ASKUL, a company that is engaged in e-commerce services for business establishments, introduced CSC's cloud-based WAF "Shadankun".
CSC aims to continue to help more companies mitigate their cybersecurity risks in the future.
