Our information security management structure

The Quality Management Dept. is responsible for promoting activity plans covering companywide information security measures and implementing management reviews, which are discussed and reviewed by the Information Security Committee with management participation.

Under the direction of the section information management supervisor, information security is implemented in each section through joint efforts among the section information security manager, staff in charge of personal information management, and system administrators and staff.
