Policy, Organization, and Initiatives
Strengthening Information Security Management
The Meiden Group understands that ensuring the security of the information we handle is a most critical issue. We therefore protect information assets from disasters, accidents, criminal acts, errors, and other threats. We also maintain and enhance information management to prevent leaks, tampering, or theft.
Information Security Control System
In fiscal 2019, we are continuing to implement initiatives to reinforce information security for the entire Meiden Group.
1 Analysis of Incidents and Countermeasures for Each Cause
We conducted analyses and implemented measures to cover both aspects of hardware/software and human factors: the former includes data protection from unauthorized logins, virus infections from suspicious emails, targeted email attacks, etc. as well as and the latter theft, loss, or mishandling of information devices.
2 Sustainable Information Security Measures
We had previously conducted initiatives based on “defense,” but we are now working to implement sustainable security measures in the areas of “prediction,” “defense,” “detection,” and “response.”
Since introducing the Security Operation Center (SOC) in fiscal 2017 in order to enhance detection, we promoted the establishment of an internal system to speed up responding to incidents in order to enhance response. Furthermore, we hold study meetings and explanatory sessions for suppliers as a first step to enhance supply chain security.
In fiscal 2019, we plan to introduce next-generation antivirus software, strengthen hardware and software measures, and continue to conduct human measures, such as information security education and suspicious email drills. We are continuously rolling out both proactive and reactive measures basis for information security on a group-wide basis.
