KRAF, Inc. is a cybersecurity company from Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan. With a mission "continue to be a company that provides peace of mind", we are committed to provide peace of mind to our employees, their families, the local community, and our customers. Through our standardized and structured work flow and post-employment training system, we have created an environment where employees without IT industry experience can grow and flourish as security engineers. Our emphasis is on expanding the company's capability and contributing to the local community as employees grow and pass on their skills and experience to new colleagues. Also, we are developing a simple and easy-to use cybersecurity management system "S4" (Smile for society, user, vendor, and you). Small and medium-sized enterprises(SMEs) lack human resources, technology, and money to take cybersecurity measures, and it leads to cybersecurity risks in their supply chain. We consider this as a social issue of "cybersecurity gap". S4 is available to large enterprises for a fee and to SMEs for free. The use of S4 by large enterprises will support the operation of S4 and its provision to SMEs. By using S4, users can take the first step toward cybersecurity measures, which will help eliminate the cybersecurity gap.
