Increase reliance on CII

Every modern nation in today’s world is increasingly dependent on Critical Infrastructures (CI) and Critical Information Infrastructure (CII). However, many still are unaware of the importance of protecting them.

The CI and CII have brought many wonderful benefits such as increasing connectivity, enabling remote monitoring, allowing more scalability and reliability as well as making services more affordable. However, any form of CI and CII breakdown can bring about significant adverse impacts that may jeopardize the benefits they bring.

CI-supported services such as those related to energy supplies, telecommunications, financial systems, drinking water and governments are inherently connected to societal functions like health, safety, security, economy and social well-being of people. On the other hand, Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) host and support critical information and (tele)communication networks that encompass mobile telephony and internet access services. Hence any disruption or destruction (in a worse case-scenario) of them can undoubtedly result in dire consequences to the public.

Risks of disruptions to public services

Today, Critical Infrastructures (CI) functions can be affected and compromised in two ways : (a) Physical disruptions and/or (b) Destruction of the CI’s essential elements as well as information and communication technologies (ICT-based) services. Other factors that can disrupt CII are human errors, technical failures and disasters; all of which also beset CI.  The CII is inseparable from CI as both are intricately linked and are becoming globally interconnected.

As a consequence, both CII and CI have become favorite targets of malware, hackers, hacktivists, and adversary states operations. In addition, CII can also serve as a means to attack another nation’s CII. A nation’s CII that is compromised or disturbed can lead to significant and widespread damages, from citizens’ daily lives to the country’s national security and stability. Economic and public activities can be hindered as well. If the disruptions and disturbances are not well-managed, they can affect other nations as CII has become globally interconnected.

Recognizing risks and acting on them

Recognizing the real risks we face today, it is critical time for almost every nation, including Indonesia, to start developing effective Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP)strategies, policies and best practices.

Zooming on 8 critical sectors

CIIP-ID Summit 2019 (Critical Information and Infrastructure Protection, Indonesia) is an exclusive meet and gathering of senior leaders, policy makers and officials from across the vast public service of Indonesia’s archipelagic nation that serves a population of over 261 million.  CIIP-ID Summit 2019 will discuss and dialogue on strategies, policies and best practices that gear-up, tighten and protect critical information infrastructure under 8 broad disciplines :
