JAKARTADAILY.ID – According to data from the National Cyber and Crypto Agency, indications of cyber attacks, or traffic anomalies in Indonesia have increased by 712 percent since 2018. 

This information was conveyed by the Head of the National Cyber ​​and Crypto Agency (BSSN) Hinsa Siburian during a speech at the Huawei Indonesia Media Camp 2022 event on Thursday, December 8, 2022, at the Del Laguboti Institute of Technology campus, Toba Samosir, North Sumatra.

However, on the other hand, based on BSSN monitoring, the number of indications of cyberattacks (anomaly traffic) in Indonesia has increased significantly by seven times (712 percent) from 234.2 million in 2018 to 1.6 billion traffic anomalies in 2021.

In the period from 1 January to 6 December 2022, BSSN has also recorded more than 948 million traffic anomalies and sent 1,401 detection notifications and cyber incidents to stakeholders.

Therefore, an important factor that should not be ignored in the Digital Transformation process is cybersecurity. "The higher the level of utilization of Information and Communication Technology, the higher the level of utilization of Information and Communication Technology, the higher the risk and threat of security," said Hinsa.
