UB Hold Workshop on the Cyber-Security Procedure Implementation for UB Community

Considering the importance of good governance for cyber security, the Directorate of Information Technology at Brawijaya University (DTI) held a Cyber Security Procedure Implementation Workshop at Amarta Hills Batu Hotel (20-21/10/2023). This workshop is intended to provide an understanding of the importance of data protection and cyber security for UB academic community.

UB Vice Rector for Planning, Cooperation and Internationalization, Andi Kurniawan, SPi., MEng., DSc said that data protection and cyber security are urgent due to the increasing number of cyber-attacks. “UB is carrying out digital transformation and is committed to providing understanding to UB academic community about the importance of data protection and cyber security,” he said.

UB Cyber Security Team or Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) has been formed in recent months. In its duties, CSIRT carries out outreach, prevention and handling if a cyber-attack incident occurs.

Recently, there have been many cyber-attacks by irresponsible individuals (hackers) which have caused harm to many parties.

UB pays attention to the importance of implementing cyber security management procedures by inviting 83 information and public relations system managers (PSIK) from all faculties.

The material for the first day of this workshop included Cyber Incidents at Brawijaya University delivered by Dr Raden Arief Setiawan (Director of DTI), Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) by Kasyful Amron (Chair of CSIRT UB), Information Security Management System by UB CSIRT Team and the DTI Team UB, and Sharing Session.

The material on the second day (21/10/2023) was an explanation of the SOP for Reporting Cyber Incidents and Audits by CSIRT Team and DTI UB Team and ended with discussion and discussion with the participants. This workshop is a follow-up series to the CSIRT Workshop that was held previously, namely a workshop on information security regulations and standards.

From this workshop it is hoped that there will be a good understanding, as well as an active role for PSIK as an extension of DTI in all cyber management activities.

In the future, all PSIK are expected to have action plans for data protection and implementation of various procedures to overcome cyber-attacks, including measuring implementation based on maturity levels in the form of policy indicators, audits, procedures, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and so on.
