Ensuring Social Safety and Security


Social and environmental issue outlook for 2030

Cyber-attacks have become increasingly frequent and sophisticated. The unprecedented damage they have caused is estimated at as much as 90 trillion dollars* worldwide. Societies also need to respond to risks such as urban crime, natural disasters, pandemics and food insecurity, which all threaten people's work and livelihoods.
To make society safer and more security, it is vital to visualize dangers to social infrastructure and workplaces, as well as information security risks, and to improve the inspection of products and services that contribute to people's work and livelihoods.
