Established in 1962, SECOM is recognized as Japan's first security services provider. Since then, we have been providing reliable peace of mind with our strong desire to create services that benefit society, in line with our social mission of helping to achieve a society free from concerns.
SECOM has sought to develop innovative services, launching Japan's first on-line commercial security system in 1966, and home security system in 1981.
In 1989, SECOM declared its commitment to creating the Social System Industry, which is a framework that delivers safety, peace of mind, comfort and convenience that are essential in daily life. Today, our business portfolio encompasses security services, fire protection services, medical services, insurance services, geospatial information services, and BPO and ICT services. We also actively expand outside Japan, currently providing security services in 13 countries and territories, and establishing presences in a total of 17 countries and territories as the SECOM Group.
Operating in an environment characterized by drastic change and mounting uncertainty, with the aim to further speed the realization of the Social System Industry, in 2017, we formulated the SECOM Group's Vision for 2030, which positions 2030 as a milestone. As part of our vision, we are working to create the ANSHIN Platform, a service infrastructure anchored in the relationship of trust that SECOM has cultivated with the society. Created in collaboration with partners who share our mission and have diverse technologies and expertise ("Co-Creation" strategy), this infrastructure is designed to provide peace of mind to people in their everyday lives, as well as to society as a whole.
By creating its ANSHIN Platform, SECOM aims to provide enduring peace of mind to an ever-changing society.
To further accelerate growth as we work toward achievement of our Vision for 2030, we have been advancing a variety of initiatives including creation of new services and systems and development of foundation for the future, under the SECOM Group Road Map 2022. The Road Map outlines business strategies as well as human resources and organizational strategies for both domestic and overseas markets that need to be pursued by 2022, and capital strategies including investment policies.
Going forward, through our efforts to realize the ANSHIN Platform, we aim to provide enduring peace of mind to an ever-changing society. By resolving diverse social imperatives, we will continue to grow together with society and achieve sustainable enhancement of our corporate value.
