After the subprime mortgage crisis and the Lehman Brothers collapse in the US, the Financial Services Agency of Japan (FSA) strengthened financial regulations. The FSA regulations introduced an IT governance perspective, which detailed the rules for information security enhancement and IT risk minimization. In response to this, the management of financial institutions have been struggling with a kind of “defensive” IT governance, or a risk minimization and compliance approach.
On the other hand, the Japan Revitalization Strategy was approved by the Abe Cabinet of Japan in 2013 and the FSA applied the Corporate Governance Code in 2015, in which listed companies are urged to achieve sustainable growth and increase corporate value over the mid- to long term. Under these circumstances, financial institutions are seeking aggressive or proactive IT governance aiming at value creation for stakeholders rather than defensive or reactive risk minimization and compliance.
