Japan and APAC is the recognized leader in electronics manufacturing, which is a digitalized industry today. As a result, cybercriminals who are totally committed to digital technologies can use the business IT infrastructures provided to spread attacks inside and beyond the region. SCADA systems can also be subject to accidental attacks. We recommend using all the latest IT security technologies and services, especially an advanced endpoint protection platform including EDR, embedded systems protection, and a threat intelligence based SOC.
