South Korea joins NATO’s cyber group as the first Asian country.

ISTANBUL, Turkey – According to South Korea’s National Intelligence Service, the country became the first Asian country to join NATO’s cyber defense group on Thursday (NIS).

According to Yonhap News, the NIS has been accepted into the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence (CCDCOE) in Tallinn, Estonia.

Seoul’s admittance brings the total number of group members to 32, including 27 NATO members.

“South Korea will be represented in the center’s training and research activities,” it says.

“By increasing the number of our workers sent to the center and broadening the scope of cooperative training, we want to boost our cyber response skills to a world-class level,” the NIS stated.

In response to an alleged Russian cyberattack that “crippled” Estonia’s state networks, NATO established the CCDCOE in 2008.
