July 1, 2016
transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) becomes a member of Nippon Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) Association effective as of July 1st, 2016. The association was established with the aim to foster cooperation among CSIRTs that respond to computer security incidents.
transcosmos has set “transcosmos –CSIRT”, its internal organization, in April 2016 to build countermeasures against highly sophisticated cyber-attacks that cannot be addressed by its traditional information security measures.
transcosmos-CSIRT’s activities include development of basic policies to address potential cyber incident cases, fully informing the employees of those measures and discussing processes and frameworks required to identify the root cause if and when the incident occurs. The team is also driving its efforts to implement the measures to relevant systems as well as conducting audits.
With joining Nippon CSIRT Association, transcosmos will share incidents occurred in its business areas such as BPO, Contact Center, Digital Marketing and E-Commerce One-Stop services and how the company responded to those cases with other CSIRT Association members. At the same time, the company will apply the knowledge on developing and operating internal CSIRT through exchanging information with the members. transcosmos further contributes to improving security of the society through working as a member of the association.
