Blue Coat Korea and the Korea Information Technology Research Institute (KITRI) announced that they are going to work together on security research on May 20.

The two companies will be conducting an information security campaign with special lectures, seminars, and conferences. The aim is to strengthen human and material resources in the information security area.

They are planning to offer a cyber forensic specialist course later on this year. Students will be learning how to analyze network traffic and upgrade security control abilities. This is crucial to properly respond to cyber attacks, to which Korea has recently been prone.

Kim Ki-tae, CEO of Blue Coat Korea, said, “You’ve probably never seen a course on cyber forensics taught by an internationally certified lecturer in Korea,” and, “This is the chance to learn high-level global technology on cyber forensics ahead of time.”

Yu Jun-sang, Head of KITRI, said, “Since the future of the information security industry depends on what we do, we are going to work thoroughly in obtaining the latest trends and technologies in security to make security experts.”
