The head of the political affairs section at the Indonesian Embassy in Beijing, Sugeng Wahono, said on Monday that the governments of Indonesia and China had agreed to intensify cooperation in cyber security.
The envoy said the matter was discussed in a meeting between a delegation from the Office of the Coordinating Political, Legal & Security Affairs Minister and the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) in Beijing last week.
The ministry's deputy chairman of the national cyber information security and resilience, First Marshal Prakoso Soeyitno Kusumoharyo, led the Indonesian delegation while the CAC delegation was led by International Affairs Bureau director general Qi Xiaoxia.
Sugeng said the Indonesian and Chinese cyber security institutions were relatively new. CAC was established on Feb. 27, 2014, while the National Cyber Information Security and Resilience Desk (DK2ICN) at the Indonesian coordinating ministry was established on April 8, 2014.
'In this regard, we have opened up the opportunity to establish more intensified cooperation between the DK2ICN and CAC in the field of cyber security in the future,' said Sugeng as quoted by Antara news agency.
China and Southeast Asian countries have also agreed to establish a China-Southeast Asia Data Center.
Sugeng said the Chinese government hoped that the platform could be used for its bilateral cooperation in cyber security with Indonesia. (ebf)
