While cyber terrorism has been a growing concern worldwide, Asia has seen a significant rise in cyber terrorism in recent years. Political instability and conflicts in some parts of Asia have also created a favorable environment for cyber terrorists to operate, including in Indonesia. This paper uses qualitative methods to analyze the threats of cyber terrorism and Indonesian government’s responses. The result is that the Indonesian government launched a comprehensive cyber security program, including the establishment of a national cyber security agency, a national cyber defense center, and various regulations. This paper argues that while there have been some efforts to improve cybersecurity policy and capacity in Indonesia, there is still a lot of work to be done to address the country's vulnerabilities. Effective policies to counter cyber terrorism should include measures to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber attacks. This might include: 1) Strengthening Cybersecurity; 2) Developing Early Warning Systems; 3) Collaborating with other Countries; 4) Enforcing Strong Laws and Regulations; 5) Building Resilience.
