Security

An inconvenient, necessary evil

Introduction

In the case of a large company, a security program is almost surely in place already, so eSolia can act as your “eyes and ears” on the ground in Japan, to audit, and carry out the wishes of HQ IT. A small firm or SME is more likely to need a security program implemented, and that is where we can really help.

Security Assessment

eSolia can assess and implement a comprehensive or partial security program across a wide range of aspects of daily security.

The following are eSolia’s focus areas for a comprehensive security program:

  • Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity - measures related to ensuring fault-tolerance and redundancy in systems and data, disaster impact analysis, failover and recovery testing.
  • Security Systems - implement systems and measures needed to rectify any weak areas, such as password sharing systems, hard disk encryption, or secure file “vault” systems.

DRP in Disaster-Prone Japan

It’s especially important to implement a effective disaster recovery program in disaster-prone Japan, where earthquakes are a common occurrence. Here’s how we do it:

  1. Identify and agree business risks and key business activities.
  2. Design minimum systems (network, servers, office space and equipment, desktops and laptops) to allow continuation of key business activities.
  3. Implement project to build out disaster recovery site or sites, acting on client’s behalf to negotiate best pricing and SLAs.
  4. Perform training and test with business users, identifying problems and gaps.
  5. Remediate and re-test.
  6. Revisit periodically.

We can’t avoid or prevent earthquakes, tidal waves, typhoons or volcanic eruptions, but we can at least reduce their negative impact for your company.
