To Ensure Trust and Reliability in the Data Driven Society

JIPDEC has played an important role in leading and promoting the computerization of Japan’s socio-economic aspects for more than half a century.
In particular, recent digital innovations on a massive scale, represented by the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Big Data have rapidly progressed, and there is a growing demand from society to ensure trust in the distribution and utilization of data, protection of personal information, and information security. Over the years we have accumulated wideranging experience in this field, and are committed to meeting society’s expectations by further promoting the PrivacyMark System and other information security related businesses.

In 2020, the world is facing an unprecedented crisis in both social and economic activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To overcome this crisis, rapid digitization and data utilization are accelerating throughout socio-economic activities, such as the shift to remote working, the use of online medical diagnosis, education, the use of contact tracing applications, and the transition to electronic contracts that do not require physical seal impressions.
It is our primary responsibility to provide support for the response of companies and individuals to this new social situation.

Looking ahead in our response to the COVID-19 crisis and the future expansion of Society 5.0 -A human-centered societal initiative that combines economic development with the resolution of social issues through a framework that joins cyberspace with physical space (real space)- we will continue to promote IT-related projects in cooperation with relevant government agencies and organizations while making the most of our accumulated experience.
We are looking forward to your continued support.
