Information security in Japan - statistics and facts

Concerns about information security risks are a steady presence in today’s interconnected world. While the internet and various technological developments have increased the convenience of many areas of daily life, attempts to exploit the data of individuals, businesses, organizations, and institutions increasingly necessitate protection measures. Further investments in information security products and services are therefore expected in the coming years. The size of the worldwide information security technology market is projected to increase to almost 175 billion U.S. dollars by 2024. In Japan, too, the mitigation of damages associated with cybercrimes has become an important issue in the recent years.

The information security market

The Japanese information security market can be divided into information security tools and information security services. The information security tools market is made up of software and hardware used to protect information. It includes segments such as endpoint protection management, network defense, content security, and identity access management. Products included in these categories range from virtual private networks (VPN) to biometric identification devices and systems. The information security services market, on the other hand, consists of segments such as consulting and diagnostic services, managed operations, and peripheral services. These segments cover services such as security operations centers (SOC) and information security literacy education.

Steps towards more information security

Japan’s national cyber security strategy came into increasing focus when the country prepared for several years for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Government ministries and agencies cooperated with the National Center for Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC), which was established in 2015 and is tasked with strategy and policy planning. In 2016, the government established the Personal Information Protection Commission (PPC), which is responsible for enforcing the Act on the Protection of Personal Information in the private sector. Survey data show that an overwhelming majority of Japanese respondents are worried about a leak of personal information or one's browser history when using the internet. Despite these concerns, however, it is common for people to disclose personal information online, such as one’s gender or hobbies. According to a 2019 survey on global online users, four out of five Japanese respondents want to do more to protect their privacy.
