Toyota has been working to reinforce its risk management structure since the recall issues in 2010. In June 2010, Toyota established the Risk Management Committee (now Sustainability Meeting and ESG Committee) and appointed risk managers globally and at each section to comprehensively prevent and mitigate the impact of risks that could arise in business activities.
With cyber-attacks becoming more sophisticated and complicated, the targets of cyber attack are not limited to confidential information and information systems, but also include the networks of systems that control plant facilities and vehicles (such as on-board device systems). The importance of information security is increasing for Toyota.
Toyota will ensure the safety and security of our customers from cyber attack threats. Toyota considers it our social responsibility to protect our customers’ personal information and therefore is reinforcing information security by governance and risk management.
In June 2016, TMC and its consolidated subsidiaries together established Information Security Policy to clarify the information security basic policy and initiatives.
