    The current Security Market The Korean Security Market reached 3.74 billion won in 2019, which is a 2.3% rise compared to 2018. The 52-hour workweek system along with other new systems will enliven the security industry, where a 5.2% rise is foreseen. The estimated market size for 2020 is 3.95 billion won. MOLIT (Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport) plans to expand the Smart City Software Platform by 2022 MOLIT plans to build Smart City platforms in 108 local governments. 22 platforms were built in the year 2018, 27 were completed in 2019, and over 30 Smart City platforms are to be constructed this year. Smart Factories and Security Along with 10 leading industrial complexes, 30,000 Smart Factories are to be built by 2022. In addition, 100,000 professional personnel are to receive specific training before starting their work at the many Smart Factories. The government was able to support 7,903 Smart Factories up until 2019 and plans to invest an additional 300 billion won in order to build 4,400 more factories. 6,000 Smart factories are planned to be constructed this year and 6,200 more in 2022. 2020- THE 7 CYBERSECURITY KEYWORDS To mark the start of a new year, the security industry has set its goal. According to the ‘2020 Security Threat’, security organizations and domestic security specialized companies have selected 7 cyber security keywords for the year 2020. Keyword 1- Artificial Intelligence Careful observations on malware features, abnormal acts, characteristics of its attackers, and machine learning based AI algorithms enable the defenders to deal with cyber threats. However, such observations also give the attackers a chance to invent new attack methods. Defenders must always stay alert since the risk of inputting false data and many other unsolved errors are relatively high in AI. Even though most security solutions are built and driven on human logic-based detection engines, keeping the latest technology manually up to date is impossible. To solve this problem, AI is useful for detecting threats, accelerating its responding speed, and blocking out the attack before its proliferation. However, as cyber criminals continue using the same technology, stronger malware is being developed. Keyword 2- Ransomware The new method of ransomware attack now aims at specific targets, where companies, communities, and public institutions are at risk. Companies with strong financial powers are most likely to be their targets as the attackers will be rewarded huge sums of money for their success. Those providing Infra and Database storage, local government and healthcare organizations, are listed as main targets. Keyword 3- Supply Chain Attack Supply Chain attacks will continue to infiltrate into the supply chain through third party systems and services. Therefore, due to its weak security systems, those purchasing third party vendor products and services, must take extra caution. Keyword 4- Cloud The interest in Cloud Security is on the rise. However, it is pointed out that Cloud computing’s largest vulnerability is the operator’s configuration error. More complex and flexible Cloud systems will eventually lead to a greater number of errors and reveal itself as a target for many cyber attackers. Keyword 5- Malicious emails Receiving emails containing malware is not a new thing anymore. The Financial Security Institute warns us how malware email attacks are becoming more cunning and harder to block. Spear Phishing, a traditional method of attack which uses HWP and DOC documents, will not stop this year. Keyword 6- Internet of Things (IoT) IoT devices are now being more commonly used and those using 5G network are as well. On the contrary, network weaknesses of the large scale multi vector 5G cyber-attacks are predicted to increase in large numbers. The main problem is that the network between IoT devices, its network, and Cloud is security-wise still unstable. This makes it harder to perceive clear visibility of the devices and requires complex security requirements. The existing regulations and the new ones must be integrated in order to protect the developing network of all industries and business fields. Keyword 7- Darkweb Darkweb is now well-known to the public. Certain programs which enable Korean Netizens to improve their networking skills, is eventually a shortcut for them to be involved in the distribution of illegal programs and cybercrime. Personal information and hacking tools traded on Darkweb are mostly misused. Examples of such are credential stuffing, spear phishing, and smishing. Darkweb is also a place where financial crimes are taking place, and it was for this reason why Darkweb was included as one of the 9 Cyber-security issues of 2020. SEOUL AS A SMART CITY The Smart City industry is predicted to reach 1.69 trillion dollars by 2021, where KISTI (Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information) estimates the domestic Smart City market to reach 151 trillion won by then. In 2017, the South Korean government formed the Presidential Committee on the 4th Industrial Revolution and issued the Smart City propulsion strategies the following year. Seoul Metropolitan City (Seoul) is one of the most renowned Smart Cities in the world, where traffic and safety, environment, and many other services are being dealt with. The Main Prize for World Smart City Awards last year, which was held at the SCEWC (Smart City Expo World Congress) in Spain, was awarded to Seoul. With its high-speed communications network and wi-fi nationwide as well as the establishment of the world’s best e-Government systems, Seoul continues to rank number one for seven executive years at the ‘World’s Top 100 e-Government Cities’ assessment. Furthermore, Seoul was one of the top three at the world’s Smart City assessment run by Eden Strategy Institute in Singapore.

  • Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic China recently announced that 5G commercial use has officially started! The development of 5G has promoted the upgrading of facilities and the number and cost of base stations are more than double of 4G. It takes about 7 years to build 6 million 5G base stations in China, with a total cost of 1.2 trillion to 1.5 trillion RMB. At the same time, 5G terminals will come to the market massively. "China 5G Economic Report 2020" shows that in 2020, 5G commercial use will drive 900 billion RMB in investment in China and it will reach 1.5 trillion RMB in 2025. According to the report, the five industries of mobile terminal, automobile industry, industrial Internet, medical health, and pan-entertainment will take the lead to benefit from 5G. The demand for 5G base stations and filters has driven the die casting suppliers. The difficulty of filter design and the increase of filter quantity are inevitable trend, and its corresponding value and sales will multiply. Facing such a huge market, how should die-casting companies cope with the present and future of 5G? The new requirements from 3C and 5G telecom industry, new applications of structural parts, new energy vehicles, building templates keep stimulating the development of die casting technologies, semi-solid casting, squeeze casting and other new processes.

  • A strong and clear announcement regarding artificial intelligence (AI) was made by president Moon Jae-in during the DEVIEW 2019 Conference held at COEX Convention Centre (Seoul). By proposing a new ‘artificial intelligence national strategy’ this year, the president’s government is striving to take lead in the global AI sector. In addition, as a response to the fourth industrial revolution, Moon’s administration has already assigned 1.7 trillion won (US$1.4 billion) for the coming year’s data, network, and AI sectors. This ambitious investment is clearly the president’s efforts to make South Korea the powerhouse of AI. The demand for security convergence is on the rise as 4th Industrial Revolution factors such as Smart Factories, Smart Cities, and 5G commercialization urges communities to form a more connected society. This concept of a more connected society also applies to physical and cyber security, which makes the boundary between those two even harder to define. The South Korean government is planning to create the world’s first ‘5G Plus Strategy’, which introduces and develops the ten essential strategies as well as the demonstration of the five main services of the 5G technology. This shows the government’s strong will in obtaining global competitiveness through this advanced technology. The development of AI, Deep-learning technology, Big Data, IoT, and ICT all contribute to the convergence of physical and cyber security, where AI and Intelligent surveillance are the main sectors. Intelligent surveillance systems made its appearance in 2010, using movement and rule-set based pattern analysis. However, the system’s reliability was often very low with false positives. The video analysis error rate reached up to 28.2%, in which the system was incapable of adapting to various environmental changes. Despite its shortcomings, the system is now improving rapidly as deep-learning technologies continue to evolve. A good example of this is the face recognition system, which is now almost as accurate as the human eye, at the accuracy rate of 95%. However, as the hyperconnected society draws near, their defence system against cyber attacks is also being enhanced. Starting off with the commercialization of 5G technology, concrete actions are being taken in order to form a new security infrastructure. Oh Yong-soo, Director of Cyber Security Policy Bureau, at the Ministry of Science and ICT, points out that “Cyber attacks are threatening the real world, in which information, communication, and network-based attacks are paralyzing systems, extorting personal information, and reaching the stage where even wrecking the economy is possible”. Furthermore, cyber security threats are now being expanded into a new 5G technology-based industry, causing harm to one’s life and safety, as well as the economy at large. Korea takes the lead in the world’s security convergence trend, enhancing the security of the converging industry The Korean government had laid the groundwork for the converging industry’s security enhancement as well. Along with security guidelines developed for each field of the converging industries, a master plan for a continuous security enhancement, IoT, and converging industries was also carried out. Furthermore, a test-bed for IoT, IoT product security test and its certifications are also being provided. In particular, the government decided to provide development opportunities for the five main areas Smart Factory Autonomous Vehicle Smart City Digital Healthcare Immersive Content. Smart City- Both ‘Hacking’ and ‘Security’ must be considered A CCTV’s surveillance has become a very important resource in the 4th Industrial Revolution, where a CCTV Integrated Control Centre can be referred to as the ‘library’ of all relevant data. Video data analysis and reprocessing can both be used to provide services to Smart Factories and Smart Cities. As many are already aware, CCTV surveillance data has become an indispensable factor for constructing Smart Cities. However, not can CCTVs solely be used for surveillance, but by applying ICT, the entire city can stay connected- traffic, facility information, security-disaster monitoring and prevention can all be managed by one integrated management system. However, this integrated management system is currently not yet completed as it is in the process of searching for the common boundary between the market’s demand and technical competence. The concept of physical and cyber security intelligent surveillance The concept of physical and cyber security intelligent surveillance are both similar in a way that they react to threats by using big data analysis in real-time. In physical security, it is defined as categorising atypical and typical data or collecting the status metadata and IoT data in order to generate an outcome through deep learning. Intelligent surveillance in cyber security refers to the collection of data from each information security system and perceiving threats, through correlation analysis of various events and improving its responsiveness. An intelligent surveillance increases the control efficiency of both physical and cyber security, which assists the controller to fulfil his tasks. Although physical and cyber security are currently divided into two separate systems, experiencing both from the same platform might be possible in a hyper connected society. ‘Selective surveillance’- A downsized but advanced intelligent surveillance system Amongst various attempts, the one which catches the eye is the ‘Selecting surveillance’- the subcategory of the intelligent surveillance system. Since the number of CCTVs being installed in local governments is on the rise and it is becoming more difficult for the controllers to control the countless number of events, it is crucial to introduce an AI based solution in order to reduce the loss of life and property as well as to provide a more reliable security service. In a Smart City, its ICT based network is formed throughout the entire area. To construct the city’s safety net, the effective control and quick response between all CCTVs and their smartification are crucial. As a result, the country’s CCTV Integrated Control Centre is becoming a place for AI based ‘Selective surveillance’, in which the integration of AI face recognition in surveillance is found. The video surveillance sector, which is the core of the 4th Industrial Revolution, aims to provide intelligent video security sensor service by merging with biometric identity solutions. The service plans to target single person households and the aging population, substantialising a welfare centred safe and secure society, with crime and disaster prevention and swift responsiveness. Furthermore, the unification of smart homes, building management and, financial services may result in a new profitable industry. Depending on the importance of video surveillance systems, video security and cyber security may also be integrated.
