Ministry of Communications and Informatics highlights significance of cybersecurity in the utilisation of ICT in Indonesia

An important issue concerning the
ASEAN countries is the security of the digital sector which can affect the
national strategic interests and the community. In order to guarantee the
optimal utilisation of ICT, addressing the issue of cybersecurity is the key,
especially with the onset of Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT)

According to the report
released by the Ministry
of Communications and Informatics
, they have prepared the Critical
Information Infrastructure Protection (CIPP) framework for Indonesia. The
Information Security aspect covers risk mitigation, incident response and
information recovery.

During the ASEAN CISO Business Forum at the
Pullman Hotel in Central Jakarta, Communications and Informatics Minister
Rudiantara explained that the CIIP encompasses the banking, financial,
transportation, and energy sectors. Not only that, but Indonesia also has the
Body Siber and the State Code (BSSN) acting as governing agencies that regulate
and supervise the digital sector.

As of current, Minister Rudiantara
described that his Ministry is focused on building high speed internet
infrastructures in order to connect all the areas of Indonesia. The Palapa Ring
Project and the satellite for high speed internet are the programs that address
the issue of connectivity. Hopefully, all areas will be included and connected
by the year 2019.

Connectivity to the internet is very
useful, he added, as this will widen the reach of public services, especially
for education, and health and safety. He explained that there are still
thousands of schools, hospitals, districts and villages in Indonesia that
remain to be disconnected.

If the country wishes to utilise the
developing technologies of IoT and Big Data, then connectivity is a very
essential aspect to focus on.  Minister
Rudiantara explained that in order to fully leverage on both, which run on a
cyber network, then the country should be connected and protected.

Minister Rudiantara proceeded to highlight
the importance of big data utilisation in the health sector. With the
information that Big Data has gathered, the pharmacology industry can determine
which medicine is most used by the people of Indonesia so that they can produce
more quantities of it.

The Minister of Communications and
Informatics reassures the people that his Ministry, together with other
stakeholders and the government will support all efforts to maintain
cybersecurity in Indonesia so that they can maximise internet connectivity and utilise
emerging technologies like IoT and Big Data.

A recent announcement released
highlighted how Eastern Indonesia will also be gaining access to the internet,
just like the people from Western Indonesia, as the government’s commitment to
provide infrastructure and telecommunication will soon be implemented in the

An announcement released earlier
explained that the annual funding of RP 2.5 million that they manage is for the
construction of telecommunications infrastructure, which is used in widening
the coverage of broadband internet.

In an even earlier announcement, the report
discussed that the residents of Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Maluku can access fast
internet by the end of September 2018 because he guarantees the completion of
the central package of the Palapa Ring by that time.

An earlier announcement was released
detailing on how the Palapa Ring Project was one of the national projects
stipulated in Presidential Decree No. 3 of 2016. The announcement highlighted
that the project aims to connect all districts and cities in Indonesia, even
those which are located in areas where it might not be commercially viable for
telecom operators to lay cables.
