Welcome Message

Dear all,

Minister Wang, Jung-Hong of the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA), Republic of Korea (ROK) would like to invite you to the 6th International Defense Technology Security Conference.

Protection of defense technology is a critical factor for the security and economy of countries all across the world which requires rigorous efforts to properly protect and manage hard-won defense technologies. As the world has entered into the era of hyper-connectivity with the rapid advancement of information communication technology, it has become all the more important to take a greater interest in defense technology security as massive amount of technology information flows across the world through computer networks everyday.

Such an important mission of safeguarding defense technology cannot be attained with the efforts of a single organization or country and must be supported by collective efforts by related countries in the global community. Thus, it is indeed meaningful to invite members of international organizations, governments, research institutions to discuss defense technology security, for which national commitment and international cooperation are essential.

In light of this, the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) of the Republic of Korea hosts the 6th International Defense Technology Security Conference on June 20th in Conrad Seoul Hotel, to share the efforts and achievements in defense technology security and to solidify international collaboration.

The theme of this year’s conference is 「Effective Defense Technology Security and Export Control in the Era of the 4th Industrial Revolution」. The conference will touch upon a range of subjects from International Export Control Policy and Way Forward, Ways to Enhance Defense Technology Security Mechanism and System.

The conference, bringing together dignitaries and professionals from home and abroad to share knowledge and experience on defense technology security, will facilitate international communication and cooperation, and serve as a valuable opportunity to get a glimpse of the future of the defense technology security policy. We kindly ask for your proactive participation in the conference, which will serve as a venue to reinforce efforts for defense technology security and enhance collaboration among international community, to share your insights for advancement of defense technology security.
