said that the bureau is hiring Internet safety experts and not hackers for its soon-to-be established Internet safety department, which is currently designated as the 7th Internet Operations Department.

Lee made the statement while conducting a question-and-answer session during a routine operations report to the Legislative Yuan’s Foreign and National Defence Committee.
