The IT environment is constantly evolving, and the volume and severity of security threats has been increasing as well. With the rapid development of technologies, such as mobile platforms and IoT, coupled with traditional industries, cyber-attacks have also become more intelligent. The frequency and size of the damage caused by these attacks are continuously escalating. As a result, there is a growing need for advanced security systems.
Consequently, it is evitable that the security focus should be expanded from PCs to IoT-, mobile-, and network-based systems, even to infrastructure as well. In addition, it is critical to satisfy diverse privacy regulations so that Samsung’s products comply with those regulatory requirements and protect users’ private data.
Samsung Research recognizes the importance of security, dealing with the above-mentioned challenges. We play a key role in delivering innovative security solutions to enhance the security level of Samsung products through in-depth defense and usable security mechanisms as well as in developing and deploying privacy protection solutions.
To achieve these goals and enhance the security and privacy verification of Samsung products and services, Samsung Research is building intelligent security platform and operating security governance, in addition to developing core security technologies for the full-stack security of various product domains and privacy protection. Furthermore, we are proactively researching next-generation security technologies necessary for the future service environment.
Specifically, Samsung Research is investigating such main research fields as, proactive full stack security and privacy protection for diverse product domains such as device/network/service/cloud, to protect Samsung's products and all relevant data.
Also, we are developing next generation security for future and emerging service environments. In particular, we are focusing on data-driven security technologies with enhanced usability.
Finally, Samsung Research is further investigating an intelligent security platform for enhancing security development practices and corporate security governance to automatically collect, refine, analyze, and predict vulnerabilities and security threats.
