As information technology advances at an accelerating pace, our company deals with an ever-increasing flow of digital data through its networks. In such a dynamic environment, safeguarding the integrity, confidentiality, and accessibility of our information assets not only preserves customer trust but also contributes to the stability and confidence of the broader society.
This is why in 2020, the Tsubaki Group formulated the Electronic Information Security Policy to protect all of the information assets we handle from a range of threats. Based on this global policy, in addition to technical measures, the entire Group is working on organizational measures such as vulnerability checks by third-party institutions, education of employees, implementing risk assessment and systematic countermeasures, and periodic audits of information security.
We will continue to strengthen our information security measures, including cyber security measures.
Electronic Information Security System Chart
The company launched the IT Committee in 1997, and expanded the committee system to include the domestic Group in 2002. Since 2014, we have been holding a Global IT Summit every year. We have set up IT supervisory leaders that oversee the information systems in overseas regions. As cyber risks are becoming increasingly serious each year, we are working to strengthen our information security governance globally.
Information security measures for cyber attacks focus on how can we prevent cyber attacks, how quickly can we become aware of cyber attacks, and how quickly can we restore business activities after an attack? In the unfortunate event that there is a cyber incident*, we have set up a Cyber Security Countermeasures System headed by top management to launch a countermeasures team of experts led by the Information System Department, which will follow the IT-BCP (Business Continuity Plan) to restore business activities as quickly as possible.
