Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries signed a cooperation agreement related to its participation in the Charter of Trust on Cybersecurity on April 23.

The deal, which follows the signing of the LOI in February 2019, makes MHI the first Asian member company as the 17th partner in the Global Cyber Security Initiative.

“Cybersecurity is an important field for MHI and its group companies,” Eisaku Ito, CoCTO of MHI, said.

“Our participation in the Charter of Trust is part of our commitment to our global customers and partners, and we hope that this occasion will help to promote the 10 key principles advocated by the Charter of Trust, and that the Charter of Trust initiative will contribute to greater globalization,” Ito added.

Initiated by Siemens, the Charter of Trust calls for binding rules and standards to build trust in cybersecurity and further advance digitalization.

Charter of Trust member companies have also worked out baseline requirements to make digital supply chains more secure. The partners recently announced to implement these requirements in their own supply chains.
