Cyber attacks and cyber crimes are becoming more serious and sophisticated year by year.According to the "Situation of threats surrounding cyberspace in Reiwa 2021 years *" released by the Metropolitan Police Department in March 3, due to the impact of the new coronavirus infection, online transactions and daily communication, cashless Due to the rapid progress of digitalization of society such as the spread of payments, not only was the number of cybercrime cleared in the second year of Reiwa the highest ever, but activities that are considered to be preparatory acts for cyber attacks such as exploration. It is reported that the situation is becoming more active.
Cyber attacks continue to be cracked down and new methods are being developed by criminals to break through the network, making it extremely difficult to detect and eliminate all fraud.In addition, it is extremely difficult to comprehensively complete the work of discovering each unauthorized access route or host by analysis that relies solely on human power.Cyber Gym Japan and FRONTEO have signed a business alliance to tackle this social issue.Cyber Gym Japan specializes in monitoring fraud related to corporate information such as confidentiality leaks, spoofing accounts, phishing, etc., and two services of vulnerability diagnosis using AI, and fraud that FRONTEO has been working on since the dawn of digital forensics in Japan. By combining the findings of the research, it will be possible to more strongly protect companies that are constantly exposed to threats in cyberspace.
Comment from Hiroyuki Ikura, Director of Cyber Gym Japan Co., Ltd.
Nowadays, many companies are considering the importance of cyber resilience, and more and more companies are working on "fastest recovery and minimization of damage" even if they are damaged by a cyber attack.Along with this, not only the number of consultations with us regarding incident response and SOC has increased, but also the number of consultations regarding forensic investigations has been increasing day by day.
Through this alliance with FRONTEO, we believe that Cyber Gym Japan's solution lineup will be enhanced to support response after an incident occurs, and we will be able to support the resolution of issues for more companies.In addition, the new service, the corporate monitoring service "Discovery," is a service that supports security measures from a new perspective that detects risks in the enterprise at an early stage. We believe that it can contribute to strengthening defense.
Comments from FRONTEO Inc. Director Shigecho Ikegami
Crime and fraudulent reserve forces in cyberspace are difficult to completely eliminate, and even with security measures, many companies are in danger every day as new methods are created one after another through the gaps. It is exposed.Monitoring the traces of attacks and checking for compromise points and vulnerabilities during normal times is very meaningful to prevent these risks.Through this alliance with Cyber Gym Japan, we believe that FRONTEO will be able to contribute to a wider range of risk countermeasures and contribute to corporate safety from a wider variety of perspectives.
