S. Korea, US step up cyber warfare partnership
South Korea will be stepping up its cooperation with the United States, particularly in the area of cyber warfare, to better deal with emerging threats. This comes on the back of last month’s cyberattack, which was the largest the country had witnessed in two years.
The Yonhap News Agency reported Monday the South Korea’s defense ministry said it will increase its cyber warfare forces and develop deterrence scenarios in partnership with the U.S. The deterrence methods will help the country be more prepared against an unprovoked attack in times of peace and war, it noted.
