BSSN Spokesperson Ariandi Putra delivers a press statement.

The Indonesian Government ensured cyber security during the G20 Summit in Bali on November 15-16, 2022.

“The cyber security provided by the National Cyber and Encryption Agency (BSSN) is not only during the G20 Summit but also before and after the holding of the Summit,” BSSN Spokesperson Ariandi Putra said in a press statement on Wednesday (10/26).

The BSSN has made efforts since July 2022 and has identified various potential cyber threats such as spear phishing, malicious document, hijacking, fake wifi, and malware operations.

In addition, the BSSN is tasked to monitor the potential threat of data theft before the G20 Summit until the end of Indonesia’s G20 Presidency.

According to him, the agency is also tasked with integrating several cyber security plans with relevant stakeholders, such as the Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI), Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, Ministry of Communications and Informatics, Ministry of Health, Cabinet Secretariat, and others.

“We are also working with internet network providers and the EO in charge of the G20 Summit. This has been carried out since last July,” he said.

Ariandi revealed that there were three cluster supports for cyber security: before, during, and after the event. This arrangement is set up to maximize the security and to see the ideal set up during the event.

Before the Summit, the BSSN has performed an audit on the information management system, measured the level of cyber security, and monitored traffic anomalies and cyber security threats.

“During the event, we will monitor the traffic anomalies, supervise the incident information, ensure the signal security, and perform counter surveillance, as well as digital forensics,” he said.

After the summit, the BSSN will identify cybersecurity vulnerabilities and potential data disclosure threats as well as conduct digital forensics and incident response.

“We are taking these measures for a smooth organization of the G20 Summit,” he said. (The G20 Communication Team/UN) (FI/MMB)
