Acting KEPCO KPS Maeng Dong-youl, Information Security Division Chief Lim Chae-jin, and BSI Korea President Lee Jong-ho participated in a ceremony to award the ISO27001 certificate at the KEPCO KPS headquarters in Naju, Jeollanam-do, on Feb. 1.
Acting KEPCO KPS Maeng said, “It is quite important for KEPCO KPS, a public enterprise specializing in maintaining and managing of national power facilities to protect core information assets from cyber invasion threats, and with earning the certificate, (we’ll) make efforts to upgrade a information security management regime so that we can aggressively address intelligent and continued security threats.”
KEPCO KPS’s obtaining the global information security management standard ISO27001 certificate will enhance reliability from customers to the outside.
Internationally recognized ISO/IEC 27001 is an excellent framework which helps organizations manage and protect their information assets so that they remain safe and secure. It helps to continually review and refine the way you do this, not only for today, but also for the future. That’s how ISO/IEC 27001 protects your business, reputations and adds value.
KEPCO KPS’s Deal to Transfer Technology to Infaith
KEPCO KPS signed a deal to transfer technologies related to vertical water turbing turning system/shaft alignment system to Infaith, an SME, at the KEPCO KPS headquarters in Naju. Among those present at a tech transfer ceremony were KEPCO KPS Technology Planning Division Chief Kim Soon-ik and Infaith President Chung Joo-taek. KEPCO KPS developed on its own the technology after about three years of R&D activities and obtained three related patents in Korea.
KEPCO KPS Technology Planning Division Chief Kim Soon-ik said the transferring of the technologies is expected to be a win-win business model of combining KEPCO KPS’s own excellent technologies and SME’s manufacturing capability.
Infaith President Chung said, “By making the most of the shaft alignment system offered by KEPCO KPS, we’ll make all-out efforts to boost sales in Korea and explore overseas markets, including Southeast Asia, which there are many pumping up power plants in operation.”
Meanwhile, KEPCO KPS is striving to transfer technologies the company has developed as state-financed R&D tasks since 2012 to SMEs as part of efforts to fulfill its social responsibilities as a public entity like the promoting of shared growth with SMES. The company is also offering diverse cooperation and support programs designed to contribute to boosting sales of SMEs.
