Samsung Prepares for Next Possible Cyberattack
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.
