Indonesia Netizen Facts (July - September 2016)

  1. 1. INDONESIA URGENTLY NEEDS REGULATION ON PRIVATE DATA PROTECTION Indonesia needs to prioritize effortsonpreparingtheappropriate laws and regulations in order to respond to the emerging violation of privacy on the internet. Such was the response of 50.8% of 600 respondents of the Indonesian Netizen Perspective Survey on Internet Privacy. At second rank, 24.5% respondents chose to improve advocacy and education to the community to address the same question. When they were asked about the current situation of regulation on private data protection, particularly the online privacy in Indonesia, three answers dominated the list: 54.5% said “it exists but very weak”, 21% answered “none at all”, and 13.5% answered “don’t know”. In fact, Indonesia doesn’t have yet any integrated and comprehensive Law on Private Data Protection. The data from ELSAM (http://s.id/elsampdp) suggests that there are at least 30 regulations on specific sectors, each of which recognizes private data’s existence. The regulations cover human rights, telecommunication media, defense and security, judiciary, health, demography, trade and industry, as well as economy, including banking system. The immense amount of regulations causes overlapping of mechanism and authority in conducting protection of private data. The survey was conducted online for two months since 20 April 2016 by the Cyber Law regulation on private data protection in Indonesia VERY WEAK 54,5% NONE AT ALL 21 % DON’T KNOW 13,5% Center of Padjajaran University’s Faculty of Law together with ICT Watch, supported by Citizen Lab, Universiy of Toronto.

  2. 2. The Ministry of Communication and Informatics and Kibar initiated a national movement to boost the number of Indonesian technopreneur named as the Gerakan Nasional 1000 Startup Digital (National Movement for 1000 Digital Startups). This movement will be launched in ten major Indonesian cities, namely Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Semarang, Malang, Medan, Bali, Makassar, and Pontianak. The government expects the movement to boost the number of digital startups and create more opportunity for business entities working in digital economy to utilize various opportunities arising from technological development. Furthermore, the movement is expected to trigger the emergence of citizens with entrepreneurship spirit that is based on technology, a.k.a. technopreneurship. Technopreneurship is represented by a society who is not only hardworking, but also adheres to the right mindset; A visionary mindset that comes together with sincerity to solve the existing social problems. Technopreneurship mindset must be cultivated into all parts of Indonesia in order to create solution for various problems in each region with their respective context. The emergence of technopreneurs hopefully will lead the rise of a healthy digital ecosystem. That is, an ecosystem that emphasizes on collaboration between elements that include government, industry actors, academics, media, and community. MOBILIZING INDONESIAN TECHNOPRENEURS: WHAT TO FIND?

  3. 3. The importance of multistakeholder cooperation to promote digital literacy in order to protect children on the internet was reiterated in the IGF 2016 in Joao Pessoa, in a workshop entitled Child Online Protection through Multistakeholder Engagement. The workshop discussed about how to cultivate the proper habit of using internet in children, thereby enabling them to avoid its negative impacts. In another workshop entitled “Child Online Protection: The Road Ahead” in WSIS Forum 2016, Geneve, the UN also stated that “everyone is involved and no one is immune”. In the parents’ guide entitled ‘What is the 21st Century Learning and Citizenship All About? Education for A Changing World – A Parents’ Guide for 21st Century Learning and Citizenship’, it is stated that students who are digital literated tend to understand their online rights and duties. This will in turn enable them to identify benefits and risks, as well as being aware of the implication of their actions in digital world both to themselves and ethically, as well as being empowered to be a smart and effective actor in digital world. The Minister of Education and Culture, Anies Baswedan, and Minister of Communication and Informatics, Rudiantara, also iterated about the above idea in the Seminar on Digital Literacy held in the Ministry of Education and Culture Office, Senayan, South Jakarta, on Saturday, June 4 2016. Anies Baswedan argued that KEY TO DIGITAL LITERACY: ANTICIPATE CHANGE, DON’T BE PHOBIC! The biggest challenge today is to educate parents and teachers in implementing digital literacy to children currently, parents bear the responsibility to anticipate future changes, the form of which even remains unclear today. “It is important for us to promote digital opportunity (to children and students). The biggest challenge today is to educate parents and teachers in implementing digital literacy to children,” he added. Similar idea was also reiterated by Rudiantara. “Don’t be phobic with digital technology development. You can find both good and bad things on the internet,” he said. However, he further said, “parents and teachers must not worry. In contrast, it is us who have to be able to select the positive aspects of technology, particularly for education sector,” he affirmed. Both ministers agreed that community must be able to implement ‘healthy internet’ as well as introduce positive digital literacy to the children. The Digital Literacy Seminar is a collaboration between Gemala Ananda School, ICT Watch, Yayasan Sejiwa, and Think Web, under the support of the Ministry of Education and Culture and Ministry of Communication and Information.
