  3. How can we motivate the cybersecurity solution providers to create and propagate the preventive cybersecurity functions that diminish the sources of cybercrimes?
  4. How can the blockchain technology be used to realize the Bright Internet Principles and vice versa within tolerable computing overhead?
  5. What should the national policies and international collaboration model be to preventively fulfill the safe national and global cybersecurity with a particular emphasis on China and Korea?
