Kicker: SM NEWS Sangmyung University Obtained Revised ISMS from KISA About ISMS and the Importance of Information Security by Hye-im Li, Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org ▲The Sangmyung University Sangmyung University has obtained a certification screening by the Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA) for the operation of the academic administration system and the main homepage. As a result, Sangmyung University got the newly revised Information Security Management System (ISMS*) by meeting all areas of the certification standard. The certification standard includes the scholastic record, the grade administration, the Education Management system, issue of the certificate, and operation of the main homepage. Sangmyung University said that, “We have been working hard to establish a safe security system and the effort was confinned by obtaining revised ISMS.” ▲The Certification ISMS/ISMS-P The Korea Internet & Security Agency is a government department which manages internetㆍinformation protection. One of the main businesses is the development of the information protection industry. To promote the information protection industry, the Korea Internet & Security Agency operates a certificate system. ISMS is one of the certificates which Sangmyung University obtained. The mandatory target of certification includes colleges with more than 10,000 students. There are 42 universities that correspond to the mandatory target. However, only 14 colleges obtained the certificate including Sangmyung University. The Korea Internet & Security Agency has planned to make ISMS mandatory since September. Unacquired universities will be imposed a fine of 30 million won. The recent implementation of the certificate for mandatory colleges means the importance of information protection in universities. Universities handle private information like the scholastic record, the grade of students and personal information. Therefore, we have to think about the possibility of personal information leakage. To avoid the personal information leakage, it is important to establish a thorough Information Security Management System. Not only the effort of our university but also the effort of students is important. Since this personal information belongs to students. Thus, SMU students have to pay attention to personal information protection, too, when using a public computer. It would be a good method of prevention to log out after using a public computer. *ISMS: ISMS and PIMS have been integrated and implemented since November 7th, 2018. ISMS and ISMS-P are the newly revised certifications.

Sangmyung’s Collaborative Learning Park for Team Project Learning By Yu-jung Kim, Cub-Reporter email@example.com These days, Korean universities prefer team projects that communicate and cooperate with others. Therefore, you can see many students who conduct team project at Sangmyung University. However, there are students who wait for a place or go to a café. Anyone who has ever done a team project in our university will sympathize. I want to cheerfully tell the students at my school not to worry anymore. Because now our school has a special space for team projects called the CLP(Collaborative Learning Park). CLP is a space designed for collaborative learning. It has various kinds of spaces with seminar- rooms, separated spaces and open spaces. In particular, each space has a TV for a display and a wireless cooperation solution (Bring Your Own Device) system. CLP is so popular among students to the extent that the rooms are fully booked during the usual study period. ▲The Photo of CLP So, who designed the CLP for students? CLP designers are school officials and Lee Hyun-woo, a professor of education. Professor Lee Hyun-woo actually said, “I thought it was a problem not to provide space for the team project, although we give a lot of tasks for the team project assignments.” It is of great significance that they have tried to think about and solve the lack of learning space. This may prove that the school and professors are interested in Sangmyung University students. CLP is a space for students only, so I hope all the students in our school will study and grow together. If there are any students who have not used it, go and study with friends right away. Source :https://www.smu.ac.kr/webzine/today.do?mode=view&articleNo=698259&article.offset=30&articleLimit=10
Kicker: SM News Sangmyung University Develops Technology for Low Cost Commodity Plastics by Chae eun Song, Cub Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Have you ever heard of commodity plastic? Commodity plastics are plastics that are used in high volume and a wide range of applications, such as film for packaging, photographic and magnetic tape, clothing, beverage and trash containers and a variety of household products where mechanical properties and service environments are not critical. Examples of commodity plastics are polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, poly(methyl methacrylate) and more. Kang Sang-wook, professor of Sangmyung University Recently, a research team led by Kang Sang-wook, professor of Sangmyung University, and a graduate student, Kim Min-soo, announced that they had secured technology to obtain ethylene and propylene at low cost, which are materials for commodity plastic. Olefin materials, such as ethylene and propylene in crude oil, are separated and produced through processes of a distillation column in petrochemical complexes. Generally, they are separated using different boiling points. The process of boiling and cooling at temperatures below minus 30 degrees must be repeated more than 100 times to obtain ethylene and propylene of a high degree of purity. Efforts have been made all over the world to replace the previous separation technique because its cost amounts to about 200 billion won a year in Korea.The membrane, which utilizes silver (Ag) ions, can get high purity olefin material with just one pass, but problems have been found in terms of durability.As a way to replace this, a membrane using silver (Ag) nanoparticles has been developed and this has received much attention due to its excellent durability.However, there were many difficulties in commercialization due to low transmission performance.To improve this, Professor Kang Sang-wook and his team recently succeeded in developing an olefin membrane that shows high permeability and mechanical properties at the same time utilizing durable silver (Ag) nanoparticles. The newly developed partitioning membrane is expected to replace the existing high-cost distillation column separation process if further cost-cutting studies are carried out.

Kicker: SM News A Brand New Way to Get Along Volunteering at a Soup Kitchen by Dong-wook Kim, Cub-Reporter email@example.com Recently, there has been a lot of Individualism going on in our society. People are not talking to each other like before and are not communicating with acquaintances. This kind of meta is toxic in our society, not being beneficial for the developmental perspective. Individualism is also spreading in universities. According to the statistics of “Albamon”, approximately 38.5% of the freshmen are living as a “Voluntary Individualist.” Will there be some solutions to this single favored situation? On April 1st, students of the Department of Food and Nutrition of Sangmyung Univ. did volunteering at a soup kitchen to enhance the friendship between the elders and the freshmen. According to one of the freshmen’s interview after the volunteering, he said, “Breaking the ice was such a hard time for me when I first entered our school. Then my major started collecting people for this food canteen volunteering. After visiting the elderly welfare center to deliver food to the elderly, I got to know more elders and companions in my major. The volunteering was tough, but the suffering was worth it.” Students Serving Food By this interview, it seems that volunteering is effecting much wider boundaries than just working. Being interactive with people doing the duty can make both feel connected. Thus, this can ease the Individualism going on these days. The volunteering can be anything else other than serving out food from the kitchen. The volunteering subject can be the person’s major like teaching a language or coaching how to be in shape. These activities might just begin as an exercise for building a resume but in the long term, people who chose to be alone will join in.
