US, ROK, Japan kick off new working group to counter North Korean cyber threats

Inaugural meeting of trilateral body comes as countries have pushed to boost cooperation on DPRK since Camp David summit

The U.S., South Korea and Japan held the first meeting of a new cybersecurity working group aimed at countering North Korea’s cyber threats, following up on an agreement between the three countries’ leaders earlier this year.
