TOPPAN FORMS Receives a SOC2 Type1 Report for Its Total Operation Services for Business Forms for the First Time in the Print Industry
Conforming to global standards for internal control systems

Nov 18, 2019

DigitalHybrid Company TOPPAN FORMS CO., LTD. (hereinafter “TOPPAN FORMS”) has received a SOC 2 Type 1 report, an assurance report by an independent third party that evaluates internal controls in the information security field, on October 31, 2019 for the first time in the print industry. The services covered by the report are the data print service (DPS) and some of the electronic input and electronic business form notification services within digital solutions, and the business locations covered are Tokyo Business Center, which is a Group data center, the Takiyama Plant, the main DPS plant, the Shiodome Head Office and the Toyosu Office, which are the design and development bases for services.

The demand for outsourcing has been increasing in recent years, particularly from financial institutions, to reduce costs and effectively use internal resources. However, the outsourcer companies oversight obligations are greater than ever, reflecting diversified risks such as increasing threats from targeted cyber-attacks, the related leakage of customers information and service outages due to system failures. In this environment, the receipt of a SOC 2 report that objectively verifies the internal control systems for information security within companies from the standpoint of a third party is spreading among cloud vendors.

TOPPAN FORMS has for years been developing businesses that deal with stored personal information such as DPS, BPO and digital solutions and has been focusing on building the highest level of information security in its systems, actively acquiring external authentication as a business operator handling personal information.
TOPPAN FORMS has recently acquired a SOC 2 Type 1 report, an assurance report by an independent third party that evaluates internal information security controls, as one of its new initiatives to continue to provide safe and secure services and encourage customers to have a strong sense of security when they outsource their operations to TOPPAN FORMS.

TOPPAN FORMS will continue to make efforts to remain a trusted partner indispensable to both customers and society by continuously operating systems with strong information security and expanding the coverage areas of the SOC 2 report.
