“Many organizations do not understand and in the end cybersecurity comes second. Now is the time for us to improve in cyber security. SecLab Indonesia opens wider doors for collaboration and encourages the authorities to embrace and work together with experts in overcoming digital security issues,” explained Harry.

Harry also added that in building the talent of cyber security experts, SecLab Indonesia conducted training, seminars, and also collaborated programs such as holding guest lectures. It is important to provide knowledge to students majoring in computer in providing an understanding of cybersecurity, because the current problem is the lack of availability of experts. This is why Seclab is committed to developing talents in the field of cybersecurity and also collaborating with many parties. [drn/Humas UB/ Trans. Iir]
