Risk Management and Compliance

Internal control

For internal control, we promote system development in order to secure the adequacy of organizational business operation. In order to accomplish organizational goals effectively, efficiently, and properly, opinions inside and outside the company are constantly grasped and improvements are continuously made, while organizing rules and business processes.

Risk management

We recognize risk management as the control of the uncertainty of strategy achievement and consider it as the most important for business administration. For risk management, S. T. CORPORATION promotes the development of systems for preventing various management risks and minimizing possible damages. We established rules for risk management and organized the risk management committee which covers the entire group including all subsidiaries, in order to put in place the risk management system and set rules for how to react to events. The risk management committee reports risk management activities to the representative executive officer, the executive officer meeting, and the audit committee, and the audit group checks to ensure these systems work effectively. For production of a Business Continuity Plan (BCP), S. T. CORPORATION has produced action plans for responding to disaster, etc., and business continuity plans, including emergency drills, from the viewpoint of social responsibilities.
