Overview

South Korea demonstrates a strong understanding cyber issues and efficient coordination of its various cyber agencies through an over-arching cyber policy implemented by the Strategy Council. The persistent threat of North Korea has resulted in a clear prioritisation of cyber security issues and offensive cyber capabilities, both domestically and in its foreign engagement. The government encourages growth in the digital economy through provision of public funding and information, as well as strong enforcement of cybercrime legislation. The highly networked society engages in sophisticated and diverse public discussion over cyberspace. However, South Korea’s score would increase with a broader government consideration of cyber issues, expanding international dialogue beyond security and into policy and governance.
