Industry shock to crime of ‘semiconductor top authority’… Is there any countermeasure against leakage?

The former executive of Samsung Electronics, whom you saw earlier, is shocking even more because he is the best expert in the semiconductor industry that anyone can know by name. In this way, cases of stealing core technologies of our flagship industries to foreign countries are not ending, and the punishment is insufficient compared to the damage, so voices calling for countermeasures are growing.

Next is Reporter Jeongyeon.


The data that the prosecution believes that former executive A of Samsung Electronics stole to China contained Samsung Electronics’ latest 30-nano NAND flash technology at the time.

Since 2016, China has established YMTC먹튀검증 , a domestic NAND flash company , and has been focusing on securing technology.

If the factory was actually built in China with the leaked technology, it is highly likely that the semiconductor technology gap between the two countries would have sharply narrowed.

[Yangpaeng Kim/Researcher, Semiconductor Research Institute for Industrial Economics and Trade: Equipment placement process technology is also a key technology. It is the competitiveness of the company and the secret of manufacturing technology. Even if the factory was not built, there is a possibility that it was used indirectly for the construction of other factories at the time.]

In the meantime, secrets from key industries have been continuously leaked, but the industry was shocked by the fact that the best experts in the industry who were known by name were involved. was

Former executive of Samsung Electronics, Mr. A, is an authority in the domestic semiconductor manufacturing field who developed the next-generation semiconductor core process. He moved to Hynix and led the revival of the DRAM business.

Companies are strengthening their own security, such as restricting access to confidential information, but ultimately there is a limit to relying on professional ethics.

It is estimated that 142 cases of overseas leakage of domestic technologies such as semiconductors and displays were detected over the past 7 years, and the damage amounted to 26 trillion won.

Due to lack of evidence, 36% of the accused are innocent, and the rate of imprisonment for those convicted is only 9%, raising voices calling for a higher sentence for the crime of leaking national secrets that threatens industrial competitiveness.
