VOINews, Jakarta: Law and Human Rights Minister Yasonna Laoly reassured the public regarding the security of immigration data now stored on Amazon Web Services (AWS) after a recent ransomware cyberattack.

"Currently, the data remains on AWS—complete, secure, and without any issues," Laoly said following an internal meeting about the Temporary National Data Center (PDNS) cyberattack at the Presidential Palace Complex in Jakarta on Friday.

He emphasized that the immigration data on AWS is safeguarded against leaks.

However, Laoly did not provide a timeline for when the immigration data would be transferred back to the National Data Center (PDN) in Indonesia.

"We'll have to wait and see how things progress," he commented.

The Ministry of Law and Human Rights had moved its immigration data to AWS after a ransomware attack disrupted operations at the PDN.

By Monday, the National Cyber and Crypto Agency (BSSN) and the Ministry of Communication and Informatics had reported 211 agencies affected by the PDNS 2 cyberattack. This number increased to 282 agencies the next day.

A total of 44 agencies were prepared to initiate data recovery processes, while the rest were still in various stages of recovery on Wednesday. Five agencies had already resumed services to the public./Antara/VOI
