I am Professor Soo Bok Moon, the president
of KAIST Cyber Security Research Center (CSRC).
KAIST CSRC was founded in 2010 to provide new information and cyber security training by developing new technologies for national cyber security and analyzing malignant codes and to nurture advanced manpower specialized in information protection. The Center has independently developed the technology to detect the sites that disseminate or spread malignant codes before the contamination stage to prevent damages caused by malignant codes, the major cause of cyber infringement. With this technology we are monitoring millions of websites in Korea and around the world and providing major government offices with the weekly analysis reports on the trends of malignant codes based on our monitoring to prevent hacking.
In the 21st century, all social infrastructures are interconnected through the ICT technology beyond informatization. Therefore, convenience and weaknesses of information protection systems have emerged as the biggest threats of social security.
We are constantly expanding close cooperation with KAIST Graduate School of Information Protection and building close information exchange and cooperation systems with government and public offices and related companies based on the outcomes of our pioneering studies. By doing so, we will contribute to Korea's cyber security policies and technology innovation.
