South Korea’s state intelligence agency has agreed to work with a local university to support education programs in counterespionage and security, as the country continues to address cyber and other security threats from North Korea.

Under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed on Wednesday, the National Intelligence Service (NIS) will advise graduate students in the new defense and security program at Myongji University, a school representative told NK News. The program is set to launch next March.
