(1) Development status (current status) and issues of the cyber security sector in the country
In proportion to the increasing importance of information and communication technology (hereinafter referred to as "ICT"), the risk of cyber attacks and information leakage is also increasing. Incidents such as fraudulent remittance of $ 81 million that the Central Bank of Bangladesh suffered have been confirmed around the world, and thus cyber attacks on critical infrastructure are recognized as a major national risk.
In Indonesia, the establishment of a department in charge of the central government on cybersecurity and the formulation of rules have been generally completed, but the lack of quantity and quality of cybersecurity human resources in private institutions and governments has been pointed out by the government and economic organizations. The reasons behind this are the lack of an absolute amount of training opportunities and the vague definition of each role in cybersecurity personnel.
(2) Cybersecurity sector development policy in this country and positioning of this project
As one of the pillars of the Indonesian cybersecurity strategy formulated by the Ministry of Information and Communication in 2016, it is planned to produce human resources based on the needs of the industry and reform of cybersecurity awareness through higher education institutions. In addition, eight fields including electricity, transportation, and finance are designated as critical information infrastructure (CII), which is the focus of cyber security measures.
This cooperation will provide cyber security human resources continuously to private institutions and governments mainly in the CII field by establishing a cyber security education system for professionals (practitioners) at one of Indonesia's top universities, the University of Indonesia.
Enterprises, government, education entities and non-Government organization in Indonesia are able to take appropriate security measure to prevent and encounter cyber threat.
Education system in University of Indonesia for cyber security professionals is strengthened based on demand by ICT entities
