For the past few years, we have seen an increased number of cyber-threats and cyber-attacks to netizen, women, and At-Risk communities, such as journalists, anti-corruption activists, environment activists, LGBTIQ, and religious minorities in Indonesia.
These digital attacks leave a problematic situation for the foundation of freedom of press, freedom of expression, and freedom of assembly. If left unchanged, this very problem will shake the foundation of democracy in Indonesia.
It is important to ensure that CSO activists and their organizations as well as journalists and the Media are aware of this cyber risk they are facing and take the necessary steps to address them. It is very important to define the active role of the civil society and media communities in the integral development of the state’s cyber-hygiene/cyber-security policies in Indonesia. Therefore, we conduct this online discussion to address the current situation.
