Indonesia Strengthens Data Security

During the pandemic, the financial crisis compelled everyone to seek money in diverse ways. Monthly earnings for hackers can range from millions to billions of rupiah due to the high value of illegal personal data. In addition, hackers are motivated by social and political issues. Not only does the hacking violate social norms, but it also has the potential to incite public unrest.

Security gaps on business or governmental websites make it simple for a hacker with ulterior motives to access people’s personal information. The lack of knowledge regarding digital data security and the absence of clear laws regarding digital crimes enable these individuals to continue their bad practices. Therefore, the government desires to strengthen its cyber security.

The website lapor.go.id, the government’s official information system that accepts online aspirations and complaints from the public, is another option for expressing aspirations. In addition, the House of Representatives and the Government of Indonesia have adopted the Bill for the Protection of Personal Data (PDP). It will then be forwarded to the President for ratification and publication in the State Gazette.

Indonesia is the fifth ASEAN nation to have a comprehensive legal framework for the protection of personal data, according to the Minister of Communication and Information, Johnny G. Plate. He emphasised that the PDP Law’s implementation will uphold citizens’ rights in line with the Republic of Indonesia’s 1945 Constitution.

Ratifying the PDP Bill is concrete proof that the Constitution’s mandate has been carried out. The PDP Bill will expand the scope of the government’s authority and role in enforcing and regulating the obligations placed on all public and private parties who process personal data.

Ratifying the PDP Law, according to the Minister, would boost confidence in and recognition of Indonesia’s leadership role in global data governance. He claimed that Indonesia would be the sixth ASEAN nation to have a comprehensive legal framework for protecting personal data.

Therefore, businesses and governments alike need to contribute to improving the infrastructure for handling digital data. Businesses and government agencies that deal with customers’ private information must exercise extreme caution and accountability when handling this information.

Data owners can also increase their knowledge of digital data security by taking measures like not reusing passwords, being wary of sharing personal information and avoiding questionable websites and apps. Privacy should be respected on both sides, especially when dealing with sensitive information.

In addition, Minister Johnny has commended the work of the Indonesian Parliament in passing the PDP Law. Many interested parties are waiting for the court’s decision on the PDP Bill because of its importance. The government, the police, the private sector, the internet, the platforms, the social media, and the people of Indonesia all play a part.

There will be more than 70 articles in the PDP Law, which will be broken down into roughly 15 chapters. Personal data of Indonesian users, including its collection, storage, processing, and transfer, will be the subject of these articles and chapters, which will also provide a thorough discussion of data ownership rights and limitations.

Minister Johnny has extended an invitation to all residents to participate in the development of the nation and state, arguing that the entire ecosystem of communication and IT can serve as an example and source of motivation toward the goal of digital transformation.
