With the emphasis on global ‘protectionism,’ countries around the world have been actively enacting new laws and seeking to implement enhanced security and safety countermeasures. It is said that the world is now entering the fourth industrial revolution era, with the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of the Things (IoT), Big Data, and so forth. As security threats become more serious due to the impact of the fourth industrial revolution, ‘Security’ is becoming the basic infrastructure of all industries.
The security industry in Korea is growing at an annual growth rate of 5%~10%, and Korea is seen by the world’s leading security enterprises as a market that is playing an important role as a ‘testbed’ for new technologies based on Korea’s strong IT infrastructure.
