Woori Bank, Metaverse Utilization ‘If I’m a Hacker’ Contest

Woori Bank announced on the 15th that it had held a ‘If I Was A Hacker’ Black Swan Contest on the Metaverse platform to discover information security ideas. A black swan is an event that is unlikely to happen, but once it does, it can have a huge impact.

The event was held using avatars with the Financial Security Service and group companies in the Metaverse conference space where you can avoid face-to-face contact due to COVID-19 and listen to the presentation of proposals in a realistic way.

A total of six cases were selected for this contest, including the proposal of ‘building a management system for external export approval files’, and Woori Bank plans to apply it to actual work together with Woori FIS, a financial IT group company.

A Woori Bank official said, “As security threats have recently become more sophisticated, we conducted this contest to discover security vulnerabilities from a hacker’s point of view and take a preemptive response.” said.

Meanwhile, Woori Bank obtained the international standard personal information protection certification (ISO 27001) in June, followed by the national personal information protection certification (ISMS-P), making it the first in the financial sector to simultaneously acquire international standards and national certifications.
