Korea Internet & Security Agency, or KISA, announced on November 29 that it is jointly offering an information security expert training program for Gabon’s information security related policymakers and technical experts, such as the National Agency for Digital Infrastructure and Frequencies (Agence Nationale des Infrastructures Numeriques et des Frequences or ANINF), the armed forces, military police, national police agency and immigration service, with the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning in Korea until December 2. 

The training program came after the KISA signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on information security with the Gabonese ANINF in November last year to pass down its experience and expertise in operating cyber infringement response center and responding cyber infringement accidents, and Cheickna Aworet, General Director of ANINF who attended the inauguration ceremony of “Global Cyber Security Partnership Network (CAMP)” held in Korea in July, asked South Korea to help with information protection technologies and policies.

The training program include special lectures from experts, who deal with Korea’s cyber security trend, network security and malicious code analysis, information security solutions and services, digital forensic technologies and cybercrime investigation, and a tour of infrastructure of related agencies and firms, such as the Government Integrated Data Center, KT and IGLOO Security’s control centers, Korea Information Certificate Authority and LG CNS.

Cho Yoon-hong, head of the information Security Industry Group at KISA, said, “With the market connected training program, we will help domestic information security firms seek out new overseas projects and build the foundation for them to expand into the global market.”
