  • Visa says tokenization key to e-commerce security

    first_imgThe increase in e-commerce transactions and users during the pandemic has raised security concerns. Homegrown e-commerce platforms such as Bukalapak and Tokopedia, as well as Bhinneka.com, reportedly experienced data breaches in May.Although the three platforms reported that no payment data was stolen, such breaches might erode consumers’ trust in storing their credentials online, Cunningham said.Cunningham also said that he was optimistic that contactless payments including tap-to-pay methods, such as Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, would be increasingly important even after the pandemic.According to the Kantar COVID-19 Barometer study published in March, 62 percent of Indonesian consumers said they would continue to use credit cards and mobile e-wallets to pay for goods instead of cash, in line with the global trend.As a result of the pandemic, consumers and retailers in physical stores chose the contactless payment option to protect themselves from the risk of coronavirus, he said.“Indonesia might be a little bit behind on tap-to-pay adaptation compared to other markets right now. But you are going to see that grow over the course of the next couple of years,” Cunningham said.“It is just a matter of infrastructure getting rolled out and getting the technology into consumers’ wallets.”According to a recent Visa survey, 70 percent of Indonesian holders of contactless cards use their card more often than two years ago, with most using their card at least once a week.E-wallet firm OVO president director Karaniya Dharmasaputra said digital payments had enabled a lot of business sectors to digitalize, with e-money growing tremendously and surpassing conventional payment solutions such as debit and credit cards.“I think we can see that the future of Indonesia’s economy would be highly driven by the digital economy and financial technology,” Karaniya said on Aug. 19 during The Jakarta Post webinar Jakpost Up Close: Reimagining the future of Indonesia’s economy.E-money usage grew almost 600 percent from 2016 to 2019, 78 percent of which came from non-bank e-money, he added.Read also: From ‘warung’ to insurance and e-money: Tech is key to surviving pandemic, beyondTopics : This measure was essential as new e-commerce users and new online merchants might be vulnerable to fraudsters if they lacked the experience in using online platforms, he added.“Our fear is that because the merchants are new, they themselves do not have the experience or the skills or the infrastructure or the tools or systems to protect sensitive information that they capture,” he said, adding that companies should choose partners with skills and expertise to protect the public.E-commerce transactions have increased 26 percent during the pandemic, Bank Indonesia data show, as the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) had forced people to stay at home to avoid COVID-19 transmission.A separate survey by Mobil Marketing Association (MMA) showed that 20 percent of surveyed respondents tried online grocery shopping for the first time in March. Financial service company Visa has spoken out about the need for e-commerce platforms to adopt security measures such as tokenization to boost protection given the rise of e-commerce users in Indonesia during the pandemic.Tokenization, which replaces sensitive data such as credit card numbers with tokens, can eliminate fraudsters because if the tokens are stolen, they cannot be used for transactions, according to Visa’s regional risk officer for the Asia-Pacific, Joe Cunningham.“In the e-commerce environment, tokens will become even more important and will continue to play a role in eliminating sensitive data from e-commerce,” he said in an interview with The Jakarta Post on Aug. 26.last_img read more

  • S. Korea, UN launch $18 m solar project in remote parts of Indonesia, Timor-Leste

    first_imgThe Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), has launched a US$18 million project to provide access to solar power and clean water in remote parts of Indonesia and Timor-Leste.The four year project, called ACCESS (Accelerating Clean Energy Access to Reduce Inequality), was funded by KOICA and will benefit about 20,000 people living in the targeted areas of the two countries.KOICA Indonesia country director Jeong Hoe Jin said the agency was committed to completing the project to ensure access to clean energy and tackle the issue of energy inequality. Read also: RI, UNDP, South Korean aid agency launch solar power plant project in four provincesMore than 10 million Indonesians and some 37,000 families in Timor-Leste lack access to reliable electricity.In Indonesia, ACCESS will reach 23 villages in West Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi, East Nusa Tenggara and Central Kalimantan through the construction off-grid solar-PV power plants with a total capacity of 1.2 MWs.In Timor Leste, the program aims to reach 25 villages in the municipalities of Dili, Manatuto and Bobonaro through the deployment of about 1,000 high-efficiency solar-PV lamps and 10 solar-PV water pumps to provide clean water access.Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry renewable energy and energy conservation director general FX Sutijastoto commended the project, noting that ACCESS would support the government’s efforts to accelerate electricity development in remote areas.“This is a strategy to promote new and renewable energy development in line with Indonesia’s target to increase the share of renewables in the national energy mix to 23 percent by 2025,” he said.He added that the directorate general was committed to developing technical cooperation with Timor-Leste.Timor-Leste State Administration Minister Miguel Pereira de Carvalho said electricity should no longer be considered a luxury but rather a basic need for citizens in both urban and rural areas.Read also: From colonial rule to Jokowi administration, clean water is still not for all“It is a great pride to see electric power development underway in Timor-Leste. I would like, on behalf of the government of Timor Leste, to thank KOICA for the spectacular gesture of solidarity for the people of Timor-Leste through this outstanding initiative,” he said.KOICA Timor-Leste country director Kim Sikhyun said ACCESS would benefit both the citizens of Timor-Leste and the country’s diplomatic relations.“ACCESS is a meaningful and timely project for Timor-Leste, contributing to people’s welfare in the country,” Kim said.“Internationally, this project will be a small stepping stone to heal the history of the past and enhance the friendly relations between Timor-Leste and Indonesia. Also, I hope this can be a catalyst for Timor’s long-cherished wish to join ASEAN.”UNDP Timor-Leste chief representative Munkhtuya Altangerel said communities in the most remote and deprived areas of Timor-Leste had faced persistent challenges in accessing electricity and clean water over the past years due to climate change.The project, she said, would provide timely support to the people living in remote parts of the country, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, where hygiene and sanitation were crucial.Topics : “Under the framework of South-South and Triangular Cooperation between Timor-Leste and Indonesia, we will work with the governments of the two countries to create common goals so that the project can make meaningful progress,” he said in a statement on Thursday.UNDP Indonesia acting chief representative Sophie Kemkhadze said the project would change the lives of thousands of people in remote areas of Eastern Indonesia and Timor-Leste who did not have access to reliable or affordable electricity.“This project exemplifies the commitment of UNDP, together with KOICA, to reach out to the most deprived populations and reduce inequalities,” Kemkhadze said.“It is also a climate action, with clean and renewable electricity generated from solar panels,” she added.last_img read more

  • Rights watchdog doubts police accountability in repurposing civil security apparatus

    first_imgThe Commission for Missing Persons and Victims of Violence (Kontras) has voiced its distrust over the National Police’s move to repurpose a private security apparatus dubbed Pam Swakarsa, arguing that the force has a checkered record when it comes to accountability and resolving violations committed by its officers.In its position paper published on Wednesday, the human rights watchdog rejected the recently issued National Police Chief Regulation No. 4/2020, which grants civilian security actors, such as private security guards (Satpam) and members of the community watch (Satkamling), certain police functions under the force’s discretion.Kontras researcher Danu Pratama Aulia expressed fears that the public might find it hard to make the police accountable if the civil security apparatus committed violations, even though the National Police had assured them that it would train the private guards to prevent them from being repressive. According to its report published in July, Kontras had recorded 921 instances of police brutality, in addition to other forms of ill-treatment, such as persecution and arbitrary arrests, since June 2019.Danu noted that almost none of the cases were taken to court.“How can we trust an institution that so far has not been able to professionally control and also give fair sanctions to its members who committed violence?” Danu said on Wednesday. “How can we trust them to supervise and control those who later will be allowed to carry out limited police functions?”[FA::Fears of repression as police move to repurpose civil security apparatus::https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2020/09/19/fears-of-repression-as-police-move-to-repurpose-civil-security-apparatus.html] He added that the name “Pam Swakarsa” carried a bad reputation, being that it brought to mind the Pam Swakarsa paramilitary security forces, which were set up by the Indonesian Military in 1998 to break up demonstrations.The paramilitary forces allegedly committed many repressive acts against demonstrators at that time, most of which remain unresolved to date.Danu further said that the newly issued regulation possibly violated the 2002 National Police Law, which stipulated that the civil security apparatus should be established under the willingness of the public and be given authority in a limited area.By giving the police full discretion to appoint which groups would be given power with no clear limitations, Danu said that the regulation took away the aspect of “public willingness” in forming Pam Swakarsa.The regulation, he added, also gave unclear boundaries on the police functions the civil security apparatus would be allowed to have, thus potentially opening loopholes for abuses of power, human rights violations and for the apparatus to be used for purposes that go against the interests of the public, such as silencing voices in protests or advancing political interests.Kontras has demanded that the National Police revoke the regulation.“The police should not use a security approach by giving civilians the authority to carry out partial police functions without comprehensive limitations and arrangements.”Topics :last_img read more
