INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta-Indonesia is uniquely positioned as a pioneer in the ASEAN region to develop and practice approaches in cyber security involving multi-stakeholder approaches, ranging from academia, private and government.
"In collaboration with Digital Media Leaders, we are crafting an effective and innovative cyber security solution," said Ardi Sutedja, Chairman of Indonesia Cyber Security Forum. Ardi views the media as a partner, where Indonesia is still considered to lack the understanding of the field of information security and cyber security (cyber security).
Still according to Ardi, the threat to cybersecurity is growing. With just a few keyboard moves, states, terrorist groups, irresponsible organizations and individuals can launch cyber attacks from anywhere and at any time that can disrupt and undermine democracy and the joints of people's lives.
"Security issues become an important aspect of an information systems management," said the man who often formulate matters related to cyber security strategy. He also deals with governance & compliance, IT risk assessment, and cyber threats. Where there is vulnerability assessment, IT security design & implementation, incident management & data loss protection / privacy services.
Ardi also now focuses on risk management impacts from the emergence of mobile and portable technologies, social media, cloud computing, and other technologies. Having a basic education in Law Science from the University of Indonesia, and a Graduate degree in Business Administration from State University of New York (SUNY), he has several specialist certifications in the field of Cyber Security, Cyber Intelligence and Cyber Resilience.
"Information is now a very important commodity. Some even say that our society is already in an "information-based society," Ardi said as quoted in a press release received by Editorial Sunday (6/8/2108)
That is, the ability to access and provide information quickly and accurately becomes very important for an organization, such as companies, universities, government agencies, and individuals. For that, cooperation with the leadership of digital media becomes absolutely necessary.
Ardi explained, so important the value of an information because often the desired information can only be accessed by certain people. The collapse of information into the hands of others may cause harm to the owner of the information. Unfortunately, this security problem is often not getting the attention of the owners and managers of information systems.
According to Ardi Sutedja, cyber crime is more caused by the low awareness of internet users to maintain the security of online financial transactions. "In terms of technology actually transactions can run quite safely by using cloud computing. The biggest problem in cybercrime related to electronic transactions actually comes from its own users," he said.
The current user is overconfident with the knowledge he has about online security. Most of them do not take fundamental action in terms of online security, such as the use of too-simple passwords. What is also interesting, Ardi assess e-ID card project from the beginning is not equipped with data security guarantees. "Often security issues are second, or even in the last place on the list of things that are considered important," he said.
In Indonesia alone, losses due to cyber crime is estimated at Rp 33.29 billion. This figure is much greater than conventional bank robbery. Through the security offered by cloud computing, e-payment transactions can grow as the government targets to make Indonesia Less Cash Society.
Cyber security is not a small problem. But it has become part of the national interest ", he continued. He also criticized the National Cyber Agency based on Presidential Regulation 53 of 2017. "When talking cyber, it is not just defense, the smell of the military. His cyber name is very broad. There are economic interests, social, cultural, to commercial," he explained.
Cyber agencies need to involve multistakeholder, from civil society (NGO), to practitioners and mass media figures who understand. "Because of the interests of the government and the private sector, it is there," said the man who later reminded the Indonesian security forces not to underestimate the ability of terrorist groups in the world of cyber and technology. "Terrorists follow the development of technology," said Ardi reminded.
Cyber security must also be understood by the mass media that is now penetrated into the digital era. As well as the sectors of transportation, electricity, banking or finance and so forth. Leaders of mass media, military, police, academia, and even practitioners are necessary to understand about cyber crime.
