Indonesia needs to prioritize
laws and regulations in order to
respond to the emerging
violation of privacy on the
internet. Such was the response of
50.8% of 600 respondents of
the Indonesian Netizen Perspective
Survey on Internet Privacy. At
second rank, 24.5% respondents
chose to improve advocacy
and education to the community
to address the same question.
When they were asked about
the current situation of regulation
on private data protection,
particularly the online privacy
in Indonesia, three answers
dominated the list: 54.5% said
“it exists but very weak”, 21%
answered “none at all”, and
13.5% answered “don’t know”.
In fact, Indonesia doesn’t have
yet any integrated and
comprehensive Law on Private
Data Protection. The data from
suggests that there are at least
30 regulations on speciﬁc
sectors, each of which recognizes
private data’s existence. The
regulations cover human rights,
telecommunication media, defense
and security, judiciary, health,
demography, trade and industry,
as well as economy, including
banking system. The immense
amount of regulations causes
overlapping of mechanism and
authority in conducting protection
of private data.

The importance of multistakeholder
cooperation to promote digital
literacy in order to protect
children on the internet was
reiterated in the IGF 2016 in
Joao Pessoa, in a workshop
entitled Child Online Protection
Engagement. The workshop
discussed about how to cultivate
the proper habit of using internet
in children, thereby enabling
them to avoid its negative
impacts. In another workshop
entitled “Child Online Protection:
The Road Ahead” in WSIS
Forum 2016, Geneve, the UN
also stated that “everyone is
involved and no one is immune”.
In the parents’ guide entitled
‘What is the 21st Century Learning
and Citizenship All About?
Education for A Changing World –
A Parents’ Guide for 21st Century
Learning and Citizenship’, it is
stated that students who are
digital literated tend to understand
their online rights and duties.
This will in turn enable them to
identify beneﬁts and risks, as
well as being aware of the
implication of their actions in
digital world both to themselves
and ethically, as well as being
empowered to be a smart and
effective actor in digital world.
The Minister of Education and
Culture, Anies Baswedan, and
Minister of Communication and
Informatics, Rudiantara, also
iterated about the above idea
in the Seminar on Digital
Literacy held in the Ministry of
Education and Culture Office,
Senayan, South Jakarta, on
Saturday, June 4 2016.
Anies Baswedan argued that
KEY TO DIGITAL
DON’T BE PHOBIC!
The biggest challenge today is to educate parents and
teachers in implementing digital literacy to children
currently, parents bear the
responsibility to anticipate future
changes, the form of which
even remains unclear today. “It
is important for us to promote
digital opportunity (to children
and students). The biggest
challenge today is to educate
parents and teachers in
implementing digital literacy to
children,” he added.
Similar idea was also reiterated
by Rudiantara. “Don’t be
phobic with digital technology
development. You can ﬁnd
both good and bad things on
the internet,” he said. However,
he further said, “parents and
teachers must not worry. In
contrast, it is us who have to be
able to select the positive
aspects of technology, particularly
for education sector,” he affirmed.
Both ministers agreed that
community must be able to
implement ‘healthy internet’ as
well as introduce positive
digital literacy to the children.
The Digital Literacy Seminar is
a collaboration between
