It was revealed on Monday that personal information of more than 50 current and ex-researchers at KAERI (Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute) were leaked online. KAERI is Korea’s national nuclear power agency which is in charge of developing local nuclear reactors and other nuclear technologies in the country.

According to local internet security experts, personal information about researchers at KAERI including their names and residential registration numbers can be easily found on Google with simple keyword searches.

Local media Yonhap News also reported on April 13 that a local internet security expert could obtain 14 PDF files on the web which contain personal information about 52 researchers at KAERI through a simple Google search. The PDF files are research reports written by KAERI researchers that were submitted to IAEA during the period of 1994 to 2012. Personal information about researchers who participated in the reports were plainly disclosed on the web without any security measures. 

Following the report, KAERI recognized the leaks about the personal information of its researchers. The agency added it will significantly strengthen its security policies in order to prevent future security incidents. An official at KAERI said, “We have monitored five cases of personal information leaks and demanded IAEA last February to delete all related data,” adding, “We have since implemented more strict security policies”.
