In today’s digital world, protection of IP is of paramount importance to the OEM and AREL understands this better than anyone else. We take multi-layer protective measures in safeguarding our customer’s interests. The process of IP protection starts with the NDA process, involving all stakeholders including customers, suppliers, service providers, contractors and our own employees. A series of measures are adopted across the organization on this matter. Customer information, documents, product data, and sensitive information is digitally locked with controlled access. Apart from this, processing, testing, and design areas are controlled through digital and physical barriers allowing access to only authorized personnel. Apart from all these, we also recognize the need for a culture of ‘responsibility’ which is driven through the fifth element of our core values,“Respectful behavior and Ethical Practices” in the way we conduct our business.
We believe that the world today is getting more and more vulnerable to digital security. Henceforth we have adopted very strong measures to protect ourselves from any intrusion into our digital world and thereby protect our shareholders, customers, suppliers, partners, and all other stakeholders. The following note on ‘Cyber Security’ explains the strong measures taken by the Amara Raja group in this regard.
