Information Security Measures
In Japan, online sessions on information security are provided annually to all employees. In 2019, the Emotet malware emails that have been attacking computers around the world were received by Sharp employees. In response, Sharp used actual cases to promptly share details throughout the company about Emotet and its distinct features, along with how to deal with these malicious emails. Sharp also developed and introduced its own training system to tackle these targeted email attacks and held training twice for all employees in fiscal 2019.
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.
