Expert: Domestic PDN Not a Guarantee of Maintained Data Security

The Brain Cipher ransomware attack on the Temporary National Data Center (PDNS) 2 temporarily paralyzed a number of public services, one of the worst being the Immigration service.

In addition to Immigration, as a result of this ransomware attack, data belonging to 282 government agencies was encrypted so that it could not be accessed and disrupted the running of public services.

Cybersecurity observer and founder of Vaksincom Alfons Tanujaya also revealed what the government and data managers need to do so that similar incidents do not happen again in the future.

“The only way is for us to implement good and correct security standards. (Standards) are easy to find, for example ISO 270001 is there, if you want to look for ransomware security standards, they are there,” said Alfons, met in Jakarta, Tuesday (2/7/2024).

According to him, the difficult thing in managing data is not how the security standards are but how to implement cyber security standards consistently.

He even likened the implementation of security standards to someone who is on a diet, everything must be consistent and must not be violated.

“Just like cybersecurity, it requires changing habits. If you want to be safe, you have to change how you view data. Admins have to change their perspective in managing data,” he said.

Alfons views that so far the problem in the government is the nature of project tenders, including tenders on data security, which have a time limit.

“Especially in the government, which is mostly project-based, once a project is received, it is finished and left. In fact, security is a long-term commitment that must be maintained continuously,” he said.

“Maintaining data security habits is difficult, we can build something big, but maintaining it is difficult because it is something that must be done routinely. Changing a lifestyle to always be safe requires awareness. Moreover, managers must know that data is a mandate,” he said.
