After the July 7th DDoS attack, Samsung plans to create a defense
against the next possible cyberattack. Planning to spend whatever it
takes, Samsung is dedicated to defend against cyberterrorism.
A representative for Samsung's defense said, "After the DDoS attack,
Samsung is starting to realize that cyberattacks are a cause for
concern, and we must be prepared by buying necessary equipment and
starting to train professionals. Also, we must defend against this
together, not individually."
Samsung will create a cyber defense team in which they select the most
educated and capable individuals who are most likely to defend against
future cyber attacks. To accomplish this, Samsung will provide a test in
which individuals will be tested on their abilities as well as their
knowledge related to DDoS and cyber attacks. Testing will be completed
by the end of November. Samsung plans to fund this organization with all
the proper training and equipment and to supply other necessities.
After the recent DDoS attack, the Ministry of Public Administration and
Security invested W20 billion (US$16.32 million) in cyber defense, and
it wasn't a secret that Samsung was a big recipient of this investment.
If Samsung was the correct choice for this counter defense against cyber
terrorism, the company will once again show why they are a powerful
international corporation. In addition, they will increase their global
reputation, publicity, and foreign export trade.
