Tren Serangan Siber yang Banyak Terjadi di Indonesia

Indonesia has experienced a significant increase in cyber attacks. With a large internet user population of 221 million in 2024, Indonesia often becomes a primary target for cybercriminals.

Globally, there are many types of cyber attacks. But what are the ones present in Indonesia? Here are some cyber attacks that we need to be cautious of.

  1. Phishing

One of the most common attack methods is phishing. Phishing is an attack where scammers send emails or messages containing links designed to trick recipients into disclosing personal information. According to reports from BSSN, there has been a 70% increase in phishing cases compared to the previous year.

  1. DDoS Attacks

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks disrupt the operation of websites or online services. This attack is carried out by sending fake traffic or large amounts of internet traffic to a website, rendering it inaccessible. BSSN's annual report shows a 40% increase in DDoS attacks on critical national infrastructure.

  1. Ransomware

Ransomware attacks are also becoming more concerning. Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts victims' files and demands ransom to unlock them. Ransomware is an example of intrusion exploiting system security vulnerabilities. According to BSSN data, ransomware attacks in Indonesia have increased by 50%, resulting in financial losses and service disruptions in institutions.

  1. Mobile Device Attacks

These attacks specifically target smartphones. Malware, malicious applications, and SMS scams are some methods commonly used by cybercriminals to target mobile users.

  1. Deepfake Biometrics

Deepfake is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) used to create fake photos and audio imitating real people to make them look authentic. Initially, deepfake was used for entertainment content. However, deepfake is now widely used to deceive biometrics during the identity verification process. As a result, fraudsters gain unauthorized access to the system.

It is also important for companies to collaborate with authorities and other organizations to strengthen defenses against information manipulation.
