What’s your company’s ‘Emergency Remote-Work’ plan for Violent Crimes?
'Don't Ask Why': Shocked by Back-to-Back Stabbing Rampages
Recently, a series of violent crimes, including stabbings and murder threats,
has instilled fear in South Korea.
These unsettling incidents have unfolded in a country that has long been known for
its safety, low murder rates, and stringent firearm regulations.
According to BBC News, these recent stabbings have heightened the perception that
'Don't ask why' crimes are becoming more prevalent, raising concerns about the overall safety of society.

Due to the dangerous crimes, particularly in a commuter town near Seoul,
many office workers are reluctant to go out.
Especially public transit commuters often appear visibly tense.
The causes of these violent crimes remain unclear and they occur for bizarre reasons.
It's reported that citizens are traumatized just by watching footage of these violent crimes.
In August, the police reported 28 cases of violent crimes.
Since these threats are posted anonymously, it's difficult to identify the criminals and the
government finds it challenging to predict when, how, and who may be harmed.
Violent Crime Situation Strikes the Gaming Industry!
Moreover, there were threat incidents in the gaming industry in South Korea.
After the bomb threat at Company P's offline event, there were instances of
users targeting Company C's games with complaints, leading to threats,
as well as threats targeting Company N in YouTube comments.

'Emergency Remote Work' was the top priority response of these
specific companies when they received threat warnings.
The company's quick response ensured that no employees were injured.
Corporate Response to Violent Crime Situations
Company C and Company N's emergency remote work transitions in response to stabbing threats are
believed to be proactive responses based on their experience with remote work during COVID-19.
When unforeseen emergencies occur, such as a violent crime, remote work becomes
an even more critical choice in ensuring the safety of employees.
The recent stabbing incident, which had a significant societal impact, is likely to act as an
important factor in promoting the adoption of remote work by companies.
