As smart devices have become an indispensable part of our daily lives, there is an increased risk of privacy and confidentiality breaches for individuals and businesses. The need for digital security is greater than ever, driving the market growth as well as technological innovations. Major data breaches both at home and abroad are reviewed, followed by a hacking demo. As the information security industry is being spotlighted as a blue ocean, many companies are throwing their hats into the arena. In Korea, notable market players include SK Infosec, a leading data security solutions provider, and Irience, a startup specializing in iris biometrics solutions. As fingerprints and irises are more prone to exposure, researchers are looking to create more reliable methods of biometric authentication using voice, electrocardiogram, or ECG, or brainwave recognition.
