South Korea: KISA and Defense Agency sign MoU to strengthen cyber threat responses

On December 5, 2023, the Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA) and the Defense Agency for Technology and Quality signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to coordinate responses to cyber infringement incidents and strengthen security capabilities in the defense industry. In particular, the MoU outlines that the organizations will agree to, among other things:

  • cooperate for responses to cyber incidents;
  • share mutual threat information using the Cyber Threat Information Analysis and Sharing System (C-TAS);
  • support personal information and information protection training for small and medium-sized businesses in the defense industry; and
  • create a foundation for utilizing information protection services.

Specifically, in the event of a breach within the defense industry, both organizations will use the C-TAS system to complete joint investigations and share the results to prevent the recurrence of cyber incidents and limit the spread of damage.
