Interview
Chanjoong Kim, Deputy Manager, IT Infrastructure Division, National Election Commission
Please tell us about your agency and its services.
The National Election Commission is an agency that has been assigned by law to fairly manage public elections and referendums and handle affairs related to political parties.
Since its foundation in 1963, the National Election Commission started managing the presidential election, National Assembly election, and national referendums. Now it has expanded duties to local elections, local referendums, public recall votes, and entrusted election management, as well as clerical duties related to political funds and education to improve citizens’ awareness. Currently, it is operating the main website of the 'National Election Broadcasting Debate Commission' and the 'Internet Election News Deliberation Commission' using the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM. The National Election Broadcasting Debate Commission is holding public official election policy debates and candidate talks during the election period. Aside from this, it is supervising and conducting a party policy debate to inform the people of party policies during normal times. The Internet Election News Deliberation Commission is maintaining the impartiality of election reports and promptly helping parties or candidates suffering from damage due to unfair election reports.
When did you first discover the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM and how did you decide to use it?
The advantages are the console feature performing work conveniently, the monitoring and alarm feature, and various products.
I encountered NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM for the first time when it was introduced to me by the Ssangyong Information Communications Corp, a partner of NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM, in November of last year. Although I was providing relevant services using another company's cloud in the past, it did not effectively harness the strengths of a cloud service, such as the console feature. Also, the cost was increased by using unnecessary virtual memory for redundant configuration and monitoring. I also had the experience of the service getting cut off temporarily due to big and small failures.  
I was satisfied with the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM when I encountered it for the first time, because I could easily create servers and perform all tasks directly from the console, while being able to configure the environment to the same standards as foreign clouds. I thought it would be safe to use, because it has acquired various domestic and foreign information security certifications, such as ISMS and ISO 27001 and 27017. Most of all, I made the decision because I thought it would be possible to use even more stable services without failure, because I can always receive professional support.
Which products of the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM are you using, and how did your company's service improve from using them?
I can prepare for DDos attacks with the security detection report delivered every week and it became possible to provide stable services through the redundant configuration.
Security was strengthened through the Security Monitoring product of NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM while redundant configuration was performed on all servers using Cloud DB for MySQL and Load Balancer. We are providing stable services for the public, because we can perform tasks without service interruptions. 
Also, due to receiving weekly security threat detection reports through the security team of NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM, I can prepare for security failures, which are considered most important at our commission, by preparing for DDoS attacks. 
On top of that, we had provided services using the CDN of NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM on the election statistics system during the 2018 local election period, it was satisfactory because we could provide a stable CDN service at a low cost.
Do you have anything to say to the people considering cloud adoption?
Looking by adjusting to the policy of having to review cloud first nationally, I recommend the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM where strong security, effective monitoring and various products exist.
Our National Election Commission also thinks that stability of service is important, as well as strong security. While a lot of computer equipment resources are required as people's interest in voting gradually increases, we had to create a resource rapidly during the recent local election period. As we were using the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM that has acquired public agency security certifications, we could take care of the urgent situation by promptly creating the server. 
Thus, our commission is always making efforts to provide stable contents for the people. So, we think NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM is a suitable cloud partner for the service strategy that we intend to pursue.
