The Defense Security Command says it will boost intelligence personnel
to ferret out industrial spies trying to leak military technology
We will launch a security investigation team with a range of
professional expertise operating around the clock to curb industrial
espionage, which expropriates military secrets and defense industry
technologies, and to counter increasingly intelligent security leaks,
the head of the DSC's planning division, Col. Lee Hwa-seok, said
Monday. The DSC has reportedly transferred some agents from
counterespionage to an industrial espionage unit.
Given the growing risk of hacking attacks and cyber terrorism, the DSC
is also planning to task more staff with countering them and monitor
overall defense intelligence.
