Ensuring Social Safety and Security
Social and environmental issue outlook for 2030
Due to the aging of factories and equipment, staff shortages and the retirement of veteran employees with a wealth of experience, among other factors, the risk of disasters at manufacturing sites has increased and the risk of workplace accidents is also considered to rise. In order to attract personnel, however, companies must provide safer workplace environments. In addition, cyber-attacks have become increasingly frequent and sophisticated. The unprecedented damage they have caused is estimated at as much as 90 trillion dollars* worldwide.
To make society safer and more secure, it is vital to visualize threats to social infrastructure and workplaces, as well as information security risks, and to improve the products and services that contribute to people's work and livelihoods.
