The Future of Secured Remote Working for Indonesia Public Sector

A Platform For Collaboration

OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to an exclusiveOpenGovLive! Virtual Breakfast Insightaims to provide the latest information on delivering practical methods the public sector can implement to enjoy a secure and cost-effective digital transformation journey. This is a closed-door, invitation-only, interactive session with senior digital executives from the Indonesian public sector. 

Driving towards the next digital wave to be secure and cost-effective in a flexible digital environment

As digital technology and connectivity evolve, Indonesia, which is well known for having the world’s fastest growth in internet users, faces both huge opportunities and major risks. 

The nation has been on a digital transformation journey for some time and has made major strides in policy, infrastructure and programmes. The pandemic has accelerated plans and forced a rethink of strategies. Nonetheless. the public sector has done a credible job in going digital to continue citizen services and operation in a VUCA environment and in the face of ever changing citizen expectations. 

Remote working has been shown to increase productivity, engagement, and collaboration more effectively than typical offices. 

Part of the digital transformation that the Indonesian public sector has successfully implemented is welcoming the modern workplace concept. Access to the latest technology and collaborative tools has helped public sector officials maintain their work productivity while ensuring optimal resource utilisation.  

To foster digital flexibility, the Indonesian ministry is considering implementing a “Work from Bali” programme for civil officials, which would aid in the recovery of the island’s devastated economy. 

That being said, there are numerous challenges that governments across the world face. Paradigm shifts in culture and thinking, policy, safety, infrastructure and skillsets are a few areas that need priority attention. 

The public sector’s ability to construct a safe digital infrastructure has been hampered by the digital environment’s flexibility. The government must build a solid cyber security system to ensure that its digital infrastructure is secure, especially as machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing advancement continue to make these agencies more vulnerable to a range of cyber-attacks. 

According to data, Indonesia has seen an increase in cyber-attacks, with over 423 million registered by the end of 2020. Indonesia’s 150 million internet users are at risk of being caught up in a disastrous cybersecurity incident if the country’s cybersecurity systems do not get up to par.  

Such security concerns require the implementation of an appropriate security plan that is both realistic and cost-effective in the long run. 

Public sector data on the cloud must be well-protected 

As the number of virtual employees grows, so does security vulnerability that must be addressed at each endpoint to reduce security risk and possible costs. 

Employees in the public sector should be empowered 

In comparison to traditional working methods, remote working has enabled employees to work autonomously with less supervision. This has been proven to be effective in attracting and retaining employees, particularly millennials with experience in managing digital transformation programmes. 

Using zero-trust security rules, enable unified endpoint security 

Before being granted or maintaining access to applications and data, all users, whether inside or outside the network, must be vetted, authorised, and regularly evaluated for security configuration and posture. Such security setups will be invaluable to government agencies. 

The Future of Remote Device Security (Security Report 2021) 

By 2025, the number of Americans working remotely will have increased by 87%, with 20% of remote workers being responsible for a security violation. This research addresses important advancements in device security at the silicon, firmware, and software levels that bring in a new baseline. In light of this assessment, the Indonesian government must continue to improve security measures.
