A global Compliance Monitoring team helps to ensure adherence to the Code of Conduct, internal policies and other protocols, and relevant laws. The monitoring program relies on risk assessments, self-assessments, audits and reporting.
Sony Group companies worldwide periodically undertake mandatory compliance self-assessments, which involve self-inspection and detailed reporting of enumerated compliance-related activities, accompanied by supporting documentation submitted for review through an automated Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) system. The Compliance Monitoring team evaluates the responses and supporting documentation provided and reports the results to senior headquarters management, who in turn reports the information to the Audit Committee. The Compliance Monitoring team also works with the Regional Compliance Officers to perform compliance audits, address reported issues, monitor any necessary remediation and perform investigations as necessary.
