Airlangga Forum with Head of DP3AK East Java Province: Citizen Data Protection

News of UNAIR Postgraduate School, 23 Jul 2021 – The Postgraduate School of Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR) held a webinar for the AIRLANGGA FORUM program on Friday, July 23, 2021. This webinar was presented with the topic, POPULATION AND CITIZENS DATA PROTECTION. Present as speakers were Prof. Zudan Arif Fakrulloh as Director-General of Population and Civil Registration Service, Andriyanto as Head of DP3AK East Java, Prof. Badri Munir Sukoco as Director of UNAIR Postgraduate School, and Suparto Wijoyo, represented by Prawira Thalib as UNAIR Postgraduate Lecturer. 

Andriyanto argues that every citizen has the right to get population services. Even citizens from birth are entitled to a letter in the form of a birth certificate. Regarding data leakage, disseminating personal data is also a criminal act and there are serious legal threats. Population data does have many needs that are also in contact with many parties such as banks, Health Social Security Administering Agency (BPJS), budget allocations, educational institutions, etc. which can be leaked by hackers. Regarding personal data in the Population and Civil Registration Service (DISPENDUKCAPIL) system. 

Andriyanto argues that to access data on DISPENDUKCAPIL, employees must go through a private virtual number and always update encryption. In addition, DISPENDUKCAPIL also monitors the integrity of the employees holding the password for the community population data system. Andriyanto himself also told about several incidents where migrants from out of town asked for a death certificate from their grandfather or father which turned out to be still alive for financial claims such as inheritance and insurance. 

In line with this, Badri believes that the country needs cybersecurity because personal data is the most valuable resource globally. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic is forcing the world’s people to migrate to the digital world. Badri believes that Indonesia has a large number of digital natives and a large market size for the consumptive market. 

Badri also stated that at least the average Indonesian spends 8 hours 52 minutes accessing the internet a day. In line with this, Prof. Bagong from FISIP UNAIR also hopes that the management of population data is sterile from the interests of power so as not to harm the community.
