Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The Indonesian government is optimistic that the National Cyber and Encryption Agency (BSSN) will be fully established by the end of the year.

"The presidential regulation has been issued. The country's cyber world must be protected," said Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Wiranto at the Presidential Palace Complex on Friday.

"We want to develop our digital economy industry. We need to improve our cybersecurity," the former Hanura Party chairman said.

BSSN is aimed to tackle cyber threats, including cybercrime, cyberterrorism and cyberwarfare. It is expected to cooperate with related government agencies, especially law enforcement agencies.

"It will coordinate all cyber security activities. It will prevent any overlapped activities," the former Indonesian military commander said.
