Introduction to KAIST Graduate School of Information Security

Organizations in private enterprise and public institutions operate their businesses by managing and acquiring various types of information. These organizations experience leakage of the shared and newly acquired information as serious damage that eventually ruins business performance due to the destruction of information systems. With the supply of newly equipped IT environments, the defense of cyberspace becomes the most crucial problem for nations trying to maintain economic prosperity. In this sense, the demand for experts in information security is increasing globally.
