Information Security Measures
In Japan, online sessions on information security are provided annually to all employees. In fiscal 2018, employees continued to learn about targeted e-mail attacks using actual incidents that occurred outside the company as case studies. This helped raise employees’ awareness of and preparedness for such threats in their daily work. Sharp developed and introduced a proprietary training system to tackle targeted e-mail attacks and fraudulent e-mail. Training in this system was carried out twice for all employees in fiscal 2018.
Sharp is also continuing with strengthening measures, such as a vulnerability assessment of publicly accessible websites. It is also addressing the issue of information leaks caused by targeted cyber-attacks as well as the accessing of illicit websites. The company is putting in place hacking countermeasures and using log analysis for early detection of fraudulent actions. In addition, to verify company-wide information security measures, Sharp also implements information security self-checks, and seeks to maintain and improve its level of information security.
