Information Protection and Management
Strengthening information security
The AISIN Group verifies the value of all the information it handles and treats information of each company, business partner and customer confidentially. At the same time, we work to appropriately obtain, utilize, disclose, manage and protect information as well as comply with all pertinent laws and regulations such as the Unfair Competition Prevention Act and insider trading regulations in Japan. Pursuant to the All Toyota Security Guidelines, we have been promoting thorough enforcement of our code of conduct. Specific efforts include: creating an appropriate environment to ensure information security, such as managing people entering and existing buildings, formulating rules concerning items brought onto and taken off the company premises and strengthening information management systems; providing education to raise employee awareness on an ongoing basis; conducting inspections of belongings; and checking rules in the workplace to manage confidential information.
In fiscal 2017, as one effort to establish a robust system to manage confidential information across the entire Group, we invited an officer from the Aichi Prefectural Police, who is in charge of protection of trade secrets, as a lecturer and hosted a joint study session for Group companies in Japan.
Managing personal information
The AISIN Group complies with all laws and regulations related to protecting the personal information of customers, business contacts and employees that we handle in our day-to-day operations. We have also established rules and systems to ensure the appropriate handling and management of personal information.
