President Director of Manpower Security Agency (BPJS Ketenagakerjaan), Agus Susanto, invited students to be agents of the digital based system named as Perisai that will be launched in the near time.
"We’re developing a system which is based on digital technology and students can get additional pocket money by becoming the agent,” said he in a Talkshow, Polgov Days, on Saturday (21/10) at Faculty of Social and Political Sciences UGM.
Agus said Perisai agents would have the responsibility to socialise, educate, and give understanding related to the manpower security to society and facilitate payment of bills through electronic media.
The implementation of the system adopted from Japan, in his opinion, was an effort by BPJS to increase the use of technology and information system that is integrated in public services like those in developed countries.
The importance of digital technology implementation in public services is also explained by expert staff to the Communications and Information Minister, Prof. Dr. Henri Subiakto. The rampant migration from physical to digital world, according to Henri, demanded institutions and individuals to also progress and be more connected to many aspects.
But he reminded people that this condition would still pose vulnerabilities to security because digital technology opens room for new models of crime.
"Technology crime often happens in Indonesia. There are 28 million of cases in 2015 and 50 million in 2016," said Henri.
He added that this would require the construction of cyber security infrastructure and culture for the Indonesian people. This starts with regulation issuance that is clear by government to act as the foundation of healthy digital culture.
"Without regulation, there will be destruction. Regulations need to be built to secure such changes from becoming destructive,” he concluded.
