Jakarta, (Antara) – The Indonesian State Intelligence Agency (BIN) could be an intelligence institution leader in Southeast Asia if it is able to reform its system to be more modern, a researcher said.
The Head of Communications and Information System Security Research Centre (CISSReC), Pratama D Persadha, said here Sunday that BIN still utilizes human intelligence as it has not been equipped with advanced technology.
“BIN needs to reform its intelligence system that focuses on searching information from the cyber world,” Pratama said.
He noted that in the digital technology era, most people communicate and are connected with the internet, including terrorists.
Threats against national security, according to Pratama, do not only come from within the country but also from overseas.
“The communication is carried out via the internet, both social media and specific applications,” he said.
In order to improve its ability, BIN should build a system and a cyber team consisting of competent It personnel.(*)
