Each Sony Group business unit, affiliated company and corporate division is expected to review and assess business risks on a regular basis and to detect, communicate, evaluate and respond to risks in its particular business area. In addition, Sony Corporation's Corporate Executive Officers have the authority and responsibility to establish and maintain systems for identifying and controlling risks that have the potential to cause losses or reputational damage to the Sony Group in the areas for which they are responsible. A corporate executive officer in charge of group-wide risk works together with relevant departments to enhance their management systems. Meanwhile, the Group Risk Office of Sony Corporation is responsible for promoting Group-level risk management initiatives, including the enhancement of business continuity plans (BCPs).
