Public-private cooperation forged for safer digital ecosystem
CJ OliveNetworks announced on Nov. 9 that it would share the results of its security consulting for 13 small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on Nov. 16.
Toward that end, the Seoul-based system integrator joined forces with the state-backed Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA) and FindTheGap.
CJ OliveNetworks has operated a program named “CJ White Hat,” which was designed to help SMEs strengthen their security-related capabilities.
CJ OliveNetworks and KISA organized a bug bounty program with the voluntary participation of SMEs, which pay attention to their security.
A bug bounty program is a deal offered by organizations by which individuals can receive recognition and compensation for reporting bugs, including security exploits and vulnerabilities.
A total of 11 white hackers are scheduled to receive prizes next week.
“The social responsibility event is aimed at creating a safer digital ecosystem,” a CJ OliveNetworks official said.
“We will continue to expand cooperation with institutes, schools and corporations, which care about security as a part of the ESG management.”
Short for Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance, ESG is the three major factors in measuring the sustainability of a corporation or business.
Over the past few years, the initiative has won the hearts and minds of businesspeople as an essential managerial value locally and globally.
