FISC (Japan)

Security guidelines for financial institutions in Japan.

The Center for Financial Industry Information Systems (FISC) is a public interest incorporated foundation tasked with conducting research on diverse topics such as technology, utilization, control, and threat/defense related to financial information systems in Japan.

One of the key documents created by the organization is the FISC Security Guidelines on Computer Systems for Banking and Related Financial Institutions, which describes controls related to facilities, operations, and technical infrastructure.

Google has developed a guide to help customers understand how Google‘s control environment aligns with the FISC guidelines (also available in Japanese .) Most of the controls outlined in our guide are part of our third-party audited compliance programs, including ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and ISO 27018 certifications.
