BOGOR (MKRI) — The Constitutional Court’s (MK) Center for Information and Communication Technology (Pustik) held a workshop on pre-cyber security incident response in Bogor, West Java Province for three days, from Friday to Sunday, November 10-12, 2023. This event aims to enhance the Court’s staffers’ technical competency in dealing with cybersecurity incidents and to establish coordination with stakeholders, especially the National Cyber and Encryption Agency (BSSN), related to the handling of cybersecurity incidents.

This workshop also contains cybersecurity technical exercise—a system that trains ICT personnel on attack and defense strategies to address cyberattacks by adopting environments/situations that resemble real cyberattacks, such as web and reversing.

The Constitutional Court has been designed from the beginning to be a modern and trusted institution. Modern means that all of its activities are carried out effectively and efficiently by using information and communication technology (ICT).

All Pustik staffers attended the workshop, which was officially opened by the head of the Center for Information and Communication Technology Sigit Purnomo on behalf of Secretary-General Heru Setiawan. Speakers from BSSN deliver presentations.

“The materials provided in this workshop are important for all participants, considering that in the near future, the Court will be handling disputes over general election results. Therefore, from the very beginning, we need to prepare all the technological tools to be used in a secure manner,” explained Sigit in his opening remarks.

In addition, he explained that this workshop was expected to provide more comprehensive and targeted understanding of cybersecurity incident responses. It was also carried out to strengthen the computer security incident response team (CSIRT) that the Court has established.

“Hopefully, after receiving the materials in the workshop, we can collectively gain a better understanding of cybersecurity and commit to enhancing cyber-resilience in our daily tasks, in order to achieve a better ICT system of the Court and to improve the resilience and security of information systems at the national level,” he concluded.
