Conducting Ongoing Training to Increase Awareness and Ensure Rules Are Entrenched
Sysmex handles data about its customers, as well as on the entities with which it collaborates on R&D and other testing. We recognize the importance of upholding information such as this, as well as of other important corporate secrets, and view the leak of such corporate secrets as an important risk for the Group. Accordingly, we have in place structures to prevent this risk from materializing.
To clarify our policies on ensuring information safety and security, in fiscal 2016 we formulated consistent a global regulation for information security for all Group companies, reinforcing organizational countermeasures to information leaks and cyber threats. We also formulated a global regulation for managing corporate secrecy to apply consistently to all Group companies. We held group training on the management of corporate secrets for executives of all affiliated companies in Japan. Also we conducted e-learning related to the management of corporate secrets for all members of the Sysmex Group in Japan.
