SoftBank is keen to drive digital transformation (DX) under our corporate philosophy: Information Revolution — Happiness for Everyone.
With our lives and business activities being digitally transformed, and due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, more and more tasks are being completed online. Keys to accelerating this trend are cutting-edge technologies like 5G, AI, IoT, RPA, cloud computing, and big data. SoftBank is actively investing in and developing these fields so that we can help contribute to achieving the SDGs, solve pressing social issues, improve customer productivity, and provide more convenient and new online experiences for all.
Labor-saving and automation through AI and RPA have prompted a shift to more creative and value-added work. Small changes can be detected by control through IoT sensors and data analysis, making it possible to proactively invest and avoid risks by making future predictions.
The foundation for accomplishing this is built on advanced information communication technology, the latest telecommunications infrastructure, and information security. In recent years, security risks have become more diversified and advanced, with increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks, persistent attacks by international hacker groups, attacks specifically targeted at remote working, and insider threats.
SoftBank continues to watch and study these threat trends, while proactively adopting cutting-edge technologies, establishing an advanced security environment, and enhancing 24-hour/365-day security monitoring and quick response capabilities.
We provide training to all of our employees to ensure they are highly aware of information security.
We renew our security policies and rules to stay in step with the times.
SoftBank will continue to offer services that all of our customers can feel comfortable using, by making sure we have the most advanced information security systems in place to support changes brought by DX.
