Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: During the National Symposium of Cyber Security 2015 in Borobudur Hotel, Wednesday (6/3/2015), it is revealed that Indonesia has become the second target nation of cyber attacks following the United States.

The conclusion was proven by watching the cyber attack on real-time, as you can see from the picture above.

"The reason is that Indonesia is one of the countries with the most social media users," Expert Staff of the Coordinating Ministry of Politics, Law and Security Dr. Yono Reksoprodjo said.

"The next factor may occur from the use of pirated softwares." Whereas porn sites are the third factor stated as stashing lots of malware to trigger cyber attacks.

Yono then stated that main mistake of security gap is not caused by the system, but the users. The measures taken by the Ministry of Communication and Informatics in shutting off porn sites were considered as the correct move. At least the cyber security gap may be minimized with the porn sites blockage policy.

"In contrast of the visible rocket (attacks) when launched, cyber attacks are invisible," he added.

"The reality is that cyber attacks may not come from only one country. Hackers could manipulate their trace to make it seem from other countries, like a bait."

It is crucial when every institution strengthen their respective cyber security. Every institution, including the government, should be able to comprehend and minimize attacks. The government should also urge awareness to public, even to each household. "Because currently there are lots of internet usage at home." (ESP)
