Security Measures on the Device Side

We have implemented anti-virus and Windows vulnerability countermeasures for PCs and other devices used by employees. Furthermore, in case of loss, we have been maintaining and constructing an environment where information leakage does not occur by introducing a mechanism that can initialize the personal computer by multi-factor authentication and remote operation in case of loss.

Education and Training

Many of the causes of information leakage are erroneous operations, mismanagement of devices and information, and lack of awareness of information security, all of which correspond to human error.
In order to prevent and reduce the security risk caused by human error, ROHM continually conducts training and education for employees to improve security literacy.
