The government said Thursday that it plans to train 5,000 experts by 2017 and boost cooperation among related government agencies to better cope with rising cyber security concerns. According to the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning, the government will also nurture the country’s cyber security-related industry to 10 trillion won (US$8.76 billion) from the current 5 trillion won by the cited year.
The measures came as unidentified hackers attacked the websites of the presidential office, another government agency and several media organizations on June 25, the anniversary of the outbreak of the 1950-53 Korean War that ended in a cease-fire, not a peace treaty. Anonymous, a loosely associated hacking group, has claimed responsibility for the attack.
