The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development.

Korea is ranked near the top in the world in all of the main informatization indices, and has the world’s highest level of internet use as well.

However, as informatization advances, related threats such as hacking, computer viruses, spam email, unhealthy information distribution and privacy invasions have also been increasing rapidly. Moreover, there is high concern over the potential damages to Korea’s main national information communication infrastructures caused by cyber attacks.
As a result, the Korean government recognizes that information security activities have an equal level of importance to informatization when pursuing national projects. To enhance the national level of information security, the Korean government is working hard to implement a systematic foundation, and has been unfolding various types of information security activities.
