Dewaweb, First Cloud Provider in Indonesia Receives ISO 27001 CSOC Certificate


Data security has become an important thing that must be considered in the cyber world. As a hosting provider who cares about cyber security, Dewaweb always strives to ensure the security of customer data.

Therefore, this year Dewaweb again received the ISO 27001 certificate, the standard for Information Security Management Systems. Based on the data found by the Team Cyber ​​Security Operation Center (CSOC) Dewaweb, the threat of cyber attacks is now getting higher, smarter, and dangerous. These threats appear in various forms, such as malware, ransomware, bad bots, DDoS, phishing to exploits.

From the existing data, at least 6 million Indonesian population data was leaked after attackers targeted the main computer system of the Indonesian Ministry of Health in January 2022. Information such as social security data, types of laboratories and medical care, as well as the names of hospital employees were reported to have been hacked.

In the same month, there was also an alleged leak of 3.5 million immigration data sets, including details of foreigners’ passports from the Directorate General of Immigration, Ministry of Law and Human Rights. In fact, the threat of cyber attacks has also begun to target Indonesian intelligence organizations, namely the State Intelligence Agency (BIN).

Although cyber attacks have prioritized targets on government agencies, there are still many Indonesian companies and government agencies that do not yet have a Cyber ​​Security Operations 24×7 team that is competent and ready to face various threats.

This can be seen from the rampant cases of data theft and website breaches that have become more frequent in recent years. This is also what underlies Dewaweb to build an elite in-house cyber security team called “Dewaguard”. Developed since early 2021, Dewaguard operates 24 hours non-stop to monitor, incident response, and threat intelligence operations to protect Dewaweb’s cloud infrastructure and customers, from the corporate sector to government agencies that require special security.

In addition to being the first local cloud hosting provider to receive an ISO 27001 certificate in 2017, Dewaweb is again making history through Dewaguard. As of June 2022, this cloud hosting provider from Jakarta has also received ISO 27001 certification for CSOC services for enterprises and government agencies.

“Since its inception in 2014, Dewaweb has always been committed to being a trusted cloud hosting service provider in Indonesia, especially in terms of data security. This ISO 27001 certificate for Dewaweb Cyber ​​SOC is proof that local cloud providers have the same service quality and security as foreign cloud service providers, even with more efficient costs and greater business benefits,” said Edy Budiman, CEO of PT Dewaweb. , as well as the holder of two prestigious certificates Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) from global IT security organizations, (ISC)², Tuesday (9/8).

The existence of ISO 27001 for Cyber ​​SOC proves the competence and high standards set by Dewaweb to ensure the security of customer data. Within this scope, Dewaguard’s services have complied with the principles of Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) Triad. This is also evidenced by the NIST Cyber ​​Security Framework4 standard applied by the Dewaweb Cyber ​​SOC Team from the US Department of Commerce, which is based on five stages, namely Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover.

Cyber ​​security services that can be used include Managed SOC 24×7, Automated Threat Defense 24×7, Managed Application Defense 24×7, penetration testing for networks and applications, and security assessment consulting for companies and government agencies.
