Jakarta, Gizmologi – Cyber security has become a priority issue for every country, along with the increasing use of information and communication technology (ICT). The increasing and complex threats following the times need to be anticipated. This is the main discussion at CyberFest 2022
Initiated by the National Cyber and Code Agency (BSSN), CyberHub Fest 2022 is a form of concrete collaboration between the quad-helix ecosystem which includes the government, community, academics, and industry players.
Lt. Gen. TNI (Ret.) Hinsa Siburian, Head of BSSN said, cyber security is a supporting factor for innovation, economic growth, and social development. “Challenges and opportunities in cyberspace will continue to grow, meaning intensive collaboration and innovation is required from every element involved in it. National cybersecurity collaboration is the main key in building a safe and conducive cyber space,” said Hinsa.
Jacky Chen, CEO of Huawei Indonesia said that we need to build collective capabilities, combine strengths, from governance, standards, and technology, to verification. As a community, we can also effectively strengthen our cyber security and privacy protection through knowledge sharing of best practices and forming tighter coalitions.
“Huawei consistently shares its knowledge and best practices such as Huawei Product Security Baselines, OIC-CERT Security Framework, and 5G Cyber Security Knowledge Base developed by GSMA with the community,” He said.
According to Marsda TNI Arif Mustofa, Deputy VII of the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, apart from land, sea and air, cyberspace is a new area of defense and security that is critical to state sovereignty. Therefore, collaboration between stakeholders is needed to build a strong cyber security fortress in order to be able to face the existing threats.
“Given that cyber security has become a priority issue for all countries in the world, the support of the global digital ecosystem, represented by Huawei, is very urgent and crucial, in order to increase capacity and adopt global best practices,” he said.
Meanwhile, Dr. Sulistyo, Director of Cybersecurity and Code Strategy, BSSN, said, “Optimization of the framework in the form of the highest security standards in the field of cyber security which was initiated and agreed upon globally must prioritize national interests where in its implementation the government collaborates with industry players to support the National Cyber Security Strategy.”
