Indonesian banks told to update their IT systems
Bank Indonesia has told the country’s banks to update their system of information technology so that they could protect themselves from possible cyber attacks that have become more and more massive. Governor of the central bank Agus Martowardojo said hackers or virus attackers continued to innovate and find loopholes in the IT system and so banking industry and other financial sectors must update their security standard. His warning came in the wake of reports that banking systems are being attacked by viruses like Petya and Wannacry. However, bank chiefs said the banking systems in the country have shown enough resistance to such attacks. But they agreed banks should always be updating their IT security system.
