Risk Management Policy
We have developed a company-wide risk management system supervised by the Risk Management Committee. This committee is chaired by the President. Based on our Risk Management Rules, we are working to reduce the risk of major impacts on management or employees.
Risk Response in a Disaster
In light of the Great Tohoku Earthquake which occurred in 2011, Afterwards we carried out an overall review of the best approach for FURUNO to respond to a disaster. We have developed disaster response policies, Company-wide Disaster Response Rules (which deﬁne roles and responsibilities when a disaster occurs), and Business Continuity Management Rules that establish a system for ensuring business continuity.
We will also strengthen our response capability by continually conducting personal safety conﬁrmation drills and disaster prevention drills for earthquake scenarios. Furthermore, in order to ensure the appropriate implementation of risk management across the company, we have instituted a Risk Management Committee and are pursuing measures to minimize respective categories of risk, including non-disaster operational risk and compliance risk.
Information Security Measures
In 2003, we established a security framework based on an information security management system (ISMS). Since then, we have been continually engaged in activities such as establishing regulations, implementing employee training, planning incident responses and countermeasures, and conducting evaluations and monitoring. In this way, we aim to protect against information security threats, reduce the occurrence of incidents, and achieve stable corporate management. Due to the increased use of e-mail in recent years, we have adopted recipient address conﬁrmation and automatic encryption of attachments as measures to prevent information leaks due to misdirected or intercepted e-mails.
We are furthermore strengthening measures to prevent information leaks from inside the company, and expanding our information security eﬀorts across group companies.
To prevent damage from cyberattacks, which have been on the rise in recent years, FURUNO has built various measures into our systems that will prevent such incidents before they occur. Nonetheless, it is difﬁcult for system-wide measures to prevent attacks completely, so we issue security reports and conduct exercises simulating a cyberattack as ways to raise awareness and levels of caution among all individuals involved.
