This has become an extremely important factor for venture companies aiming for IPO. One of the most important reasons why it is necessary to take security measures is “trust.” Whether shareholders and investors can trust a company as an investment partner is a very important point, and security is a particularly important point. In the unlikely event that personal information is leaked due to a security incident, the company may not only be required to pay a large amount of compensation, but also lose credibility with the company or go bankrupt. In the past, there has been an incident where a venture company that was conducting research on self-driving technology for robots and cars and was about to go public had its listing canceled due to information leaks. This company was scheduled to be listed on the TSE Mothers at the end of November 2016, but in mid-November it was announced that customer information had been leaked to the Internet, and in December, the company decided to postpone the listing procedure, and the TSE The approval was also revoked. ACT’s cybersecurity measures include SentinelOne, an AI-driven EDR product that has received top-class reviews overseas, and we have a countermeasure team that can respond in English, and we are the only company in Japan to be certified as an incident response partner.
