In February 2022, Santen became a certified Digital Transformation Business Operator under the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
The certification recognized our efforts to meet the certification criteria under the Digital Governance Code, which stipulates actions that business managers are expected to implement in order to boost corporate value, and that the Company conducts appropriate information disclosure to its stakeholders.
Furthermore, our information security policy conforms to ISO/IEC 27001 and we continue to strengthen initiatives to protect stakeholders. In addition to instituting cybersecurity processes, our response to information security risk also includes global training programs. We gamify these trainings for efficient learning related to cybersecurity in daily work scenarios to maintain a high level of security.
And we are implementing a next-generation enterprise resources planning (ERP) system as one means to enhance internal controls. Santen has created a team of highly specialized personnel in an agile, cross-regional organizational structure. Under the leadership of this team, we pursue a global project aimed at standardizing internal processes and improving transparency to accelerate the transformation of our business model. Leveraging standardized data infrastructure as an important management resource, we will execute more agile management decision-making, improve profitability, and create new value.
