This study analyzes and provides forecast for the Japan IoT security product market from 2020 to 2024, taking into account the impact and outlook of the novel corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic as of the end of March 2020. As many incidents, such as damage due to ransomware in IT systems, leakage of personal information, and disruption of services due to distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks because of unsecured IoT devices, continue to occur, the security measures and response during such incidents can affect the management and activities of businesses and organizations. IT and operational technology (OT) personnel need to put their best foot forward and deepen their mutual understanding as well as recognize the security risks associated with OT and the need for countermeasures with regard to operational technology security."IoT devices/IIoT sensors are designed and developed with security in mind. It will be an effective approach for IoT suppliers to implement security measures by collaborating with users. On the other hand, it is necessary for IoT users to comply with regulations and guidelines regarding handling the data that is obtained from devices and sensors. Apart from security measures, it is also important to consider compliance and data governance," says Kenichi Akama, research manager, Software and Security, IDC Japan.
