JAKARTADAILY.ID – Head of the Presidential Secretariat Heru Budi Hartono denied rumors that secret documents belonging to President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo have been leaked by the hacker Bjorka

The denial comes in response to a slew of public and government data supposedly being leaked online by a hacker who goes by the name of Bjorka. The leaks allegedly contained secret presidential documents and the President's correspondence with the State Intelligence Agency (BIN).

Heru denied all rumors and called them hoaxes. Heru also ensures that currently, all the documents of its institutions and the President are still well protected.

"Until now it is still safe, we are still trying because this is our user. Of course, all important documents must be protected," said Heru, on Saturday, September 10, 2022.

Heru emphasized that his party always strengthens its cyber security system with an encryption system that is constantly updated. Security has also been tightened with a cipher system which he claims is difficult to crack.

"Actually, we have been vigilant from the start, because this threat can happen at any time. We have also taken preventive measures, as well as follow-up efforts," he said.

"This is our sovereignty and we don't want to bet this on something illegal," he said.

Heru encouraged the need for a legal umbrella to ward off cybercrimes that target people's personal data. BIN encourages the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR) to immediately ratify the Personal Data Protection Bill (RUU PDP) into law.

"We want an acceleration for the PDP Bill (soon to be passed into law)," he said.
