Information Security Policies and Emergency Response Mechanisms

To maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and applicability of Phison's assets and protect users' information privacy, we clearly stipulated in our information security policies that employees shall avoid unauthorized access and revisions while respecting intellectual property rights and protecting the information of customers and the Company. Anyone who discovers information security incidents or suspicious security weaknesses should report them to the Information Department through our reporting mechanism, at which point our Information Department personnel will conduct proper investigations and handle the matter appropriately.
It is the responsibility of all Phison personnel to follow our Information Security Policies. Company personnel who violate our information security policies shall face civil, criminal, or administrative responsibilities according to the severity of the violation, or penalties according to relevant rules. The policies are also integrated with the Company's employee performance evaluation to reduce instances of employees being penalized or facing legal responsibilities due to information security violations and also reduce the Company's information security risks.
