Abstract : Olympic Games are one of the most grand sport events in the world. In case of Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games, more than 1.3 million spectators visited Olympic sites and more than 3.5 billion people were estimated to watch the event through media. For the various services, more than 90 thousand people were involved for the Olympic operation. To operate the big event smoothly, the organizing committee mainly depended on the high end technologies, especially on information communications technology. The committee built up huge ICT infrastructure, including wired and wireless network facilities and data centers with a lot of SW packages and numerous connected devices. Big ICT infrastructures are basically vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Especially, Olympic ICT infrastructure has usually been one of the main targets of boastful hackers all over the world. Therefore, the committee applied many kinds of cyber security measures to the infrastructure. The strong cyber security policy covered networks, SW, devices, data centers and human management. The policy and effort had undoubtable worth, defending the destructive cyber-attack done at the Olympic opening ceremony time. The experience of successful recovery from the damage of the attack could be valuable to share among global ICT society to prevent the future possible chaos.
