This article was translated from its Japanese original version here.
Japan Risk Specialist (JRS) has announced that with effect from April 2022, it will begin offering cyber security services from Blackpanda, a specialist digital forensics and incident response provider based in Asia. The focus of said services is on countermeasures against ransomware, which is causing increasing damage.
Using its own software, Blackpanda understands the security status of its customers. The necessary measures are taken to prevent damage caused by malware. The company analyzes information on the darknet to detect signs of infringement and can mitigate the risk of attacks on companies in advance. The company also provides risk reduction and proactive measures during normal times.
In the event of an actual breach, identification of the attacker and negotiation advisory are also provided. The company can respond quickly, providing preliminary analysis, an initial assessment report, and initiating containment and remediation within 48 hours of a breach.
Japan Risk Specialist arranges insurance, reinsurance as well as domestic and international insurance according to the specific risks. The company decided to sign an agency contract with Blackpanda due to the increase in cyber attacks on Japanese companies. Mr. Araki–JRS CEO–pointed out that "in Japan, cyber insurance has taken root on the understanding that it is necessary only for large corporations". In the future, JRS will work with other insurance companies to expand the range of cyber security services available to small and medium-sized enterprises as well.
