Policy on Information Management

 The Alps Electric Group recognizes it has a social responsibility to rigorously manage customer and supplier information (including private information about individuals) as classified information together with its own information. As basic policies, we maintain that we will not inappropriately disclose information to parties outside the company; that we will not use information for non-business purposes; and that, except in special circumstances, we forbid information being taken outside the company.
 These basic policies are included in a set of information management regulations that apply to all electronic components segment companies in Japan and overseas and are made known to the entire workforce from directors down to regular employees.

Information Security

 Within the Alps Electric Group, the information systems department heads activities for establishing regulations related to information security, devising security enhancement measures and training plans, and deploying them both in Japan and globally through coordination with information officers in individual departments.
 As a control on information management policy, information management audits of individual departments are conducted every year to confirm the status and progress of education plans and improvement measures. Operation, maintenance and trouble response activities of systems departments are also audited and we are working to prevent information leaks or falsification and maintain systems availability while pursuing measures to counter new threats such as targeted attacks.
