Streamlining the risk management structure
Honda promotes the management of risk that requires corporate-wide attention in line with the Corporate Crisis Management Policy and Honda Risk Management Rules.
In order to further reinforce our risk management structure, we established the Risk Management Committee to handle all types of risk, ranging from natural disasters to the risk inherent in business.
In addition, we solidified our structure to enable more effective identification of risk and necessary countermeasures that became apparent after the Great East Japan Earthquake. Thus, we thoroughly revised the Honda Crisis Response Rules and renamed it the Honda Risk Management Rules.
To ensure ample protection of the personal information of our customers and employees, as well as properly handle sensitive company information, we established the Confidential Information Management Committee for our offices and major subsidiaries in Japan. A director is assigned as the committee representative responsible for sensitive information management throughout the year.
Our measures taken to further strengthen information management in 2011 included the revision of the Honda Security Policy (HSP), the information management rules of Honda.
