Information Security System using RFID Technology is in Full Operation
Toppan Forms as a Compnay Handling Personal Information Builds Security Systems of the Highest Level

October 7, 2014

Information Management Solution Provider Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. (Toppan Forms hereunder) built new vehicle access control management and magnetic media management systems using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) at Takiyama plant in Hachioji Tokyo and data center which will be operational today.
Toppan Forms, as a leading provider of Data Print Service (DPS) and ID card production/personalization with the highest market share in Japan, operates and manages client's entrusted personal information under the highest security environment. Handling personal information is the core and the strength of Toppan Forms' business. To enhance the highest level of system security for handling personal information, new security systems will be operational at the plant and data center where they are printed and processed.

Vehicle Access Management System at Takiyama Plant

At Takiyama plant, vehicle access management system using UHF RFID tag will become operational at the product incoming and outgoing shipping area that is designated high-security level. Identifying the vehicle and verifying access at the area allows the system to record access time at the designated incoming and outgoing shipping area.
The operator driving forklift accessing incoming and outgoing shipping area is identified by RFID system to open and close the shutters and pass log is collected. By verification, workers are limited to certain area within the plant preventing un-authorized entry. The shutter can be opened and closed without getting off the forklift which improves work efficiency.

Vehicle Identification at Incoming and Outgoing Area

Magnetic Media Management System at Data Center

In the data center, magnetic media management system using RFID technology will be operational. Combining "Easy Checkout" asset management package system developed and sold by Toppan Forms with security gate system enables physical media management, storage and retrieval long collection, ascertainment of take out status, and inappropriate take out alert. Magnetic media stored in the secure storage area are accurately managed real-time reducing the inventory work time up to 1/6.

Future Direction

Toppan Forms will continue to strengthen the security system. In addition to the implementation in Tokyo area, the company will strengthen security by aggressively making facility investments in other production and data processing locations such as Osaka Sakurai plant (Mishimagun, Osaka) established in May, 2014.
The accumulated operational know-hows through internal implementation will contribute to building an user-friendly system in an end user environment.
