Integrated Report 2021(For the year ended December 31, 2020)

Crisis Management Structure and Activities The Yamaha Motor Group works to minimize the damage from and quickly resolve crisis situations as per the Rules for Initial Response to an Emergency.In the event of a disaster, accident, or compliance-related incident at the Group, the division involved will report to the risk management supervisory section or the divisions in charge of risk management as per standards for determining the level of reporting, which are set in advance. If the reported event is of a scale significant enough to warrant the involvement of Group management or multiple divisions and/or companies, the risk management supervisory section will refer the matter to a response team designated in advance, and an Emergency Countermeasure Headquarters, chaired by the president, will be estab-lished. The headquarters will work to understand the situation and formulate a provisional response and, if necessary, will promptly report on the matter to customers and related parties. Business Continuity Planning To prepare against envisioned risks that could impact the continuity of its business, Yamaha Motor has formulated the Rules of Business Continuity and responds as per those rules.Yamaha Motor’s primary operations are concentrated in Shizuoka Prefecture and could be affected if a major earthquake were to occur in the Nankai Trough. To prepare for this, we have formulated a business continuity plan (BCP) to maintain the continuity of business operations, based on the damage projected by government bodies, and are placing foremost priority on the lives and safety of our employees.Specifically, buildings and equipment have been made earthquake- and tsunami-resistant; emergency stockpiles of food, water, and other essen-tials are maintained; emergency methods for telecommunications are in place; and Companywide evacuation drills, night drills, and safety confir-mation drills are carried out regularly at both the headquarters and Group companies located nearby. Also, regular initial response drills are held at both headquarters and individual business units, procedures to restore operations have been clarified, and a system for gathering supply chain information is in place. These and other measures addressing both tangible and intangible effects are carried out comprehensively and continuously.Another concern is the potential outbreak of global pandemics. To prepare for such events, Group companies have developed infection prevention measures and identified issues that could affect the continuity of their operations in order to formulate response plans. Drills simulating actions to be taken in the case of a pandemic are carried out, and sys-tems are in place to guarantee that businesses are able to continue operating.In regard to the global COVID-19 pandemic that has wrought havoc in fiscal 2020, we took measures in accordance with our Business Continuity Guidelines (Novel Influenza Version) and set up a COVID-19 Task Force headed by the president, which collected information, set response policies, and disseminated directives and information. We instructed Yamaha Motor employees and their families stationed over-seas in certain countries to return to Japan based on the spread of COVID-19 infections and local medical risks. For employees working at the headquarters, we adopted teleworking and staggered office hours. We also prepared an intranet site for sharing information between headquarters and Group companies and implemented a thorough range of other measures to prevent infections. Cybersecurity Efforts Cyberattacks have become increasingly advanced and sophisticated in recent years, and businesses are faced with a heightened risk of infection by computer viruses, leakage of personal and confidential information, and information system failures. The Yamaha Motor Group has thus established a Cybersecurity Policy with the aim of protecting the products and services used by its customers as well as its information assets.In addition to the basic defensive measures already in place, such as a monthly vulnerability analysis that includes anti-malware measures, the Group has a Security Operation Center (SOC) that monitors for irregulari-ties to enable early detection and response and a Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) that responds to incidents to prepare for contingencies. The Group also provides training to increase employees’ cybersecurity literacy, conducts assessments to ascertain the situation at each Group company and to develop improvement plans, and makes other ongoing efforts to reduce cybersecurity risks. Information Management Initiatives In fiscal 2013, the Yamaha Motor Group established its Group Operational Guidelines that stipulate Groupwide policies related to all areas of information management, including confidentiality manage-ment, document control, protection of personal information, and man-agement of disclosed information. We have been carrying out activities in line with these guidelines since. The development of communications technologies and greater use of big data as well as the enactment of new personal information protection laws in Europe in fiscal 2018 trig-gered the gradual ratification of strict personal information laws and ordinances in various countries. In response, Yamaha Motor revised its Information Management Group Operations Guidelines in fiscal 2020, laying out provisions on the handling of personal information and desig-nating organizational roles, in particular. Yamaha Motor and its Group companies in countries around the world are working together to achieve global compliance with the new guidelines. The Yamaha Motor Group Global Privacy Policy was also revised in fiscal 2020 to promote compliance with personal information protection laws in the countries we operate in.In relation to information management, each year, we monitor how information is handled among Group companies and make recommen-dations based on the results. At the same time, we conduct group training sessions, e-learning seminars, and other educational and awareness-building activities to ensure the appropriate handling of information.In fiscal 2020, there were no allegations recognized by regulatory authorities as being violations of our customers’ privacy.Please visit our corporate website for more information on risk management.
