With the enactment of the Personal Data Protection Law (PDP), significant challenges and risks arise in its execution. A major concern is the prevalence of personal data breaches despite 93.5 percent of the Indonesian population actively using the Internet, particularly on social media. The gap between this widespread internet usage and the lack of awareness regarding personal data protection raises serious concerns. The unregulated exposure of personal information has proven to result in various criminal activities. 

Beyond the issue of privacy awareness, the menace of cyber-attacks is escalating alongside the rapid evolution of technology. Hence, it becomes crucial to implement effective data security measures to support the enforcement of the PDP Law. What solutions can be implemented to address this situation? Explore the answers in the following article. 

Overview of the Provisions of the Law on Protection of Personal Data in Electronic Systems

Based on Article 3 of the Regulation of the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Number 20 of 2016 on Personal Data Protection in Electronic Systems, it is stated that the protection of personal data in electronic systems includes the process of obtaining and collecting, processing and analyzing, storing, displaying, announcing, sending, disseminating and/or opening access, and destroying.  

In the same provision, Article 15 explains that personal data stored in electronic systems must be personal data that has been verified for accuracy and encrypted. In addition, the government also takes preventive measures to protect personal data by establishing data centers and disaster recovery systems.  

A data center is a facility used to house electronic systems and their related components for the purpose of data placement, storage, and processing. Meanwhile, a disaster recovery center is a facility designed to restore data, information, and critical functions in electronic systems that are disrupted or damaged by natural disasters or human error.

Comply to PDP Regulations with Two Solutions from CDT

Although it will take effect on October 17, 2022, Article 74 of the PDP Law specifically states that companies will have a two-year transition period to adjust their personal data processing regulations. During this period, companies must ensure that all personal data processing is conducted in accordance with the procedures described in the PDP Law.   

To ensure that your organization can implement the PDP Law, CDT recommends two data security solutions, F5 and Zscaler. Both platforms come with a suite of policies and protections to ensure compliance. Here’s the full explanation. 

F5 Privacy Compliance & Practices: Ensuring Data Processing Security

F5 Privacy Compliance & Practices is a set of policies and procedures implemented by F5 Networks to protect the privacy of its customers’ personal information. These policies cover various privacy regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, and HIPAA. F5 provides a comprehensive solution for organizations seeking to comply with multiple privacy regulations.  

Benefits of F5 Privacy Compliance & Practices

  • Reduced Operational Costs  

Organizations can streamline privacy compliance processes and reduce compliance-related costs.  

  • Improved Data Security
