Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – It turns out that there are daily habits that make it easier for online fraudsters to carry out their actions. This was revealed by the Head of the Financial Sector Cyber ​​Incident Team, National Cyber ​​and Crypto Agency (BSSN), Sandromedo Christa Nugroho.

According to him, people who have a habit of showing off their activities on social media are more vulnerable to becoming victims of online fraud. Not infrequently, cybercriminals target sensitive personal data which can break into victims’ accounts until they run out.

“Now Gen Z really likes updates [media sosial]. Still eating updates, where are the updates? “Actually, it provokes attacks to be able to profile someone easily,” said Head of the Financial Sector Cyber ​​Incident Team, National Cyber ​​and Crypto Agency (BSSN), Sandromedo Christa Nugroho, at the launch of the No Deception Movement, Jakarta, Thursday (30/11 /2023).


He explained that the perpetrator could see the victim’s name. Next, you can search for social media, for example Facebook and from there you can find out family data.

“For example, I found the first account I saw from its name. That can be done by profiling social media, what it does. From Facebook, you can go to the family, who is the family, who is the father, and can get the address. Usually they will carry out an attack, from online fraud,” he explained.

The perpetrator will profile the victim in such a way. So the attack given will be successful and not be useless.

Sandromedo also explained that reports of continuous cyber attacks had also increased. For example, from 2020 to 2021 the increase reached 230%.

“This indicates that we are actually entering digital transformation. But we are not equipped with good digital literacy,” he said.

He said there are several types of cyber attacks. Including one that uses the humanist and psychological side of the victim.

On the same occasion, Blibli’s VP of Public Relations, Yolanda Nainggolan, explained that most attacks came from the individual’s own mistakes. He quoted it from the World Economic Forum 2022 report.

“It shows that 95% of cyber security problems are on the people side,” said Yolanda.
