Cybersecurity is not considered to be Indonesia's strongest point. The country is ranked
first in Southeast Asia and 60th in the world regarding the dangers posed by Internet surfing. In the first quarter of 2022, the country faced
over 11.8 million cyberattacks. In 2021, BSSN recorded
1.65 billion cybersecurity traffic anomalies.
The country passed its first data protection bill in September 2022. Until then, personal data was not defined in the law, meaning it was difficult to punish violations. Indonesians' data is regularly exposed to the point where citizens jokingly call it an "open-source country."
This has led to a number of big data violations. We have made a list of top-10 cybersecurity breaches in Indonesia to learn from.
