    SEOUL, REPUBLIC OF KOREA, December 04, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Jungwoo Seo has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

When companies require a defense against denial of service attacks and malware, they can turn to Dr. Seo to provide cutting-edge information systems security. He is an expert in the field of information security and cryptology, a certified information systems auditor, and the director of security verification at the Korea Post Information Center (KPIC). Dr. Seo served as a senior research engineer with Samsung Electronics for eight years, and is intimately familiar with emergent information technologies.

Dr. Seo studied information security at the Korea University Graduate School of Information Security and earned a Master's degree in 2004. He served with the development and evolution of product divisionof Samsung Electronics from 2004 to 2012 and went on to the Korea Meteorological Administration as director of the intrusion response team. Dr. Seo studied methods of using Internet Protocol (IP) Spoofing to detect distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, a form of digital aggression where a single system is bombarded with requests until it ceases to function. DDoS attacks are notoriously difficult to prevent, as they come from an astronomically high number of sources distributed throughout the internet or from one source camouflaged with millions of "spoofed" or false IP addresses.

In particular, Dr. Seo utilized his methods to authenticate weather observation data and to create counterstrategy against information systems attacks. He applied his research to earn a PhD from the Korea University Graduate School of Information Security, and in 2016, Dr. Seo accepted his current position with KPIC.

For his achievements in cyber security and information systems, Dr. Seo has received a 2008 Samsung Engineering Award for the development of KMS service, a 2013 Person of Information Security Merits Award from the Korea Meteorological Administration, and a 2015 certification as an information systems auditor by the ISACA, formerly the Information Systems Audit and Control Association. Dr. Seo has a special interest in network forensics, network intrusion response, artificial intelligence in cyber security, and the security of the Internet of Things, a conceptual interconnectivity of the Internet to a variety of everyday objects.
