Japan Information Protection Control 2017−2021 Forecast
This IDC study which analyzes the Japan information protection control market and provides a forecast from 2017 to 2021. IT systems were traditionally located on-premise and personal information was stored in corporate intranets. It was sufficient then to consider only laws and regulations in one's country. However, with increasing use of public cloud, data exchanges between countries have increased and personal information such as purchase histories may be included within the exchanged data. It has become necessary for companies to fully understand and consider the different laws and regulations governing different countries. "Companies in Japan should fully understand the risks in the application of overseas regulations. Security product suppliers must instill in user companies an understanding of regulations such as the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Through this, users will understand the need for information protection control, and demand for such products will increase," says Tsuneo Tosaka, research manager, Software and Security, IDC Japan.
