Hitachi Review

Highlight

With DDoS attacks and the spread of malware infiltration targeting Internet banking, there is a growing threat of cyber-attacks in the financial industry, one of the country’s key infrastructure sectors. Against this background, financial institutions have responded by working rapidly to establish response measures for cyber-attacks, and are increasingly sharing cyber-attack-related information among themselves. Hitachi has a Group-wide incident response team called HIRT, with a financial sector subset called HIRT-FIS that promotes incident readiness activities for the financial sector. Hitachi also operates a joint internet banking center, which has continually provided security measures to combat today’s constantly changing threats since the service started.
