Project Description

Korea is a world leader in cybersecurity, given its internationally recognised strength in the IT industry among other leading economies. In 2016, the Australian Government launched a Cyber Security Strategy, understanding the advent of complexity and sophistication of emerging cyberattacks. The collaborations between Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), Korea University (KU), Seoul Women's University (SWU) and the University of Western Australia (UWA) to develop smarter security solutions will provide Australia the opportunity to join Korea at the forefront of technological advances in cybersecurity. Intelligent security solutions adaptive to cyberattacks will be developed based on security modelling and analysis, which will also incorporate cutting-edge technologies, such as deep learning and moving target defense. Proposed solutions will protect existing and emerging networking technologies (such as SDN, IoT, Cloud, Smart Grid etc) against complex and sophisticated cyberattacks. This project will also provide the foundations of long-term collaborations in the cybersecurity field between the two countries.

Key dates:

  • Workshop at UWA on fundamentals of cybersecurity, Perth, 28 January to 31 January 2019
  • Workshops at SKKU, KU and SWU, Seoul, Korea, 11 February to 18 February 2019
  • Prof. Hyoungshick Kim of SKKU and Prof. Huy Kang Kim of KU travel to UWA for Production of Journals, Research Papers, and Book Chapters Relevant to cybersecurity research, Perth, Australia and Seoul, Korea, 06 July 2020 to 10 August 2020
