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.
Initiatives in Information Security
With cyber-attacks becoming more sophisticated and complicated, the targets of cyber attacks go beyond accessing confidential information and information systems, now including the networks of systems that control plant facilities and vehicles (such as on-board device systems). The importance of information security is paramount for Toyota.
Toyota takes care to ensure the safety and security of our customers from cyber attack threats. Toyota considers it a social responsibility to protect our customers' property, such as personal information, and is reinforcing its information security through governance and risk management.
In June 2016, TMC and its consolidated subsidiaries together established the Information Security Policy to clarify our basic policy and initiatives.
