Indonesia Charting a Path to Cyber Resilience

The National Cyber and Crypto Agency (BSSN) consistently strives to enhance the cybersecurity capacity of academics and technical cybersecurity training institutions in Indonesia through collaboration. It aligns with the goal of creating an open, secure, stable, and responsible cyberspace, as outlined in the Indonesian National Cybersecurity Strategy established in Presidential Regulation Number 47 of 2023 concerning the National Cybersecurity Strategy and Cyber Crisis Management.

The ongoing collaboration in progress is the Indonesia Academic Forum for Cyber Security, organised as an implementation of cooperation between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), the Embassy of the United Kingdom, and the National Cyber and Crypto Agency’sAgency’s Polytechnic for Cybersecurity and Cryptology.

This forum also catalyses the potential to drive collaboration with countries that support and share similar initiatives. Notable attendees included Hinsa Siburian, the Head of BSSN, Jeffery Cohen, the Mission Director of USAID Indonesia, Jeong Yun-Gil, the Country Director of the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), Samuel Hayes, the Head of Digital Economy at the British Embassy in Jakarta, David Stanley, the Project Director of Digital Asia Accelerator (DAI), Tjahjo Khurniawan, the Director of the National Cyber and Crypto Agency’sAgency’s Polytechnic for Cybersecurity and Cryptology, along with senior officials from BSSN, guest speakers, and forum participants.

During the forum, the Head of BSSN emphasised the importance of proactively addressing cybersecurity threats, emphasising that the gradual, incremental, and continuous improvement of capacity, capabilities, and quality regarding human resources, processes or governance, and cybersecurity technology is a top priority. He underscored that failure to anticipate these threats could jeopardise Indonesia’sIndonesia’s digital economy potential, projected to reach a value of Rp 4.531 trillion by 2030.

Furthermore, he highlighted the pivotal role of human resources, stating that they play the most significant part in successfully implementing cybersecurity measures. However, he acknowledged that human resources are the weakest link in the cybersecurity chain, necessitating ongoing capacity and capability-building efforts.

“In line, the enhancement of capacity for academics and technical cybersecurity training institutions takes precedence. This is essential to produce reliable and professional cybersecurity and cryptography experts,” Hinsa Siburian emphasised.

Meanwhile, Jeong Yun-Gil, the Country Director of KOICA, underscored the significance of engaging renowned experts from Korean universities and international technology companies, noting that their participation added a dynamic dimension to the forum’s discussions.

The spotlight on Korea’s cybersecurity research and development strategy is an exemplary model for countries striving to enhance their cybersecurity resilience. The collaborative exchange of ideas and experiences among experts from diverse backgrounds enriches the discourse, fostering a deeper understanding of cybersecurity’s multifaceted challenges and opportunities. This dynamic dialogue benefits Indonesia and contributes to the global discourse on bolstering cybersecurity capacities and strategies.

In his address, Jeffery Cohen, the Mission Director of USAID Indonesia, articulated the United States Indo-Pacific strategy, reaffirming USAID’s unwavering commitment to supporting and assisting partner countries in confronting cybersecurity intrusions. This strategy underscores the United States’s dedication to fostering a secure digital environment in the Indo-Pacific region.

As a key stakeholder in cybersecurity in Indonesia, BSSN consistently endeavours to convene experts, professionals, and communities under a single roof. The agency’s overarching goal is to facilitate the exchange of insights, the sharing of ideas, and the collaborative forging of pathways toward a more secure digital future.

BSSN recognises the value of creating a collective platform where expertise converges, fostering a robust and collaborative ecosystem that benefits Indonesia and contributes to the broader international cybersecurity landscape. This commitment to cooperation and knowledge exchange is pivotal in addressing the complex and evolving challenges in the digital realm and charting a course toward a safer digital era.
