The UI team is represented by Dean of FT UI Prof. Heri Hermansyah and representatives of the Electrical Engineering Department of FT UI, namely Arief Udhiarto, Muhammad Salman, and Ruki Harwahyu.

On that visit, Team UI visited Meiji University, Tokyo Denki University, Professional University of Information and Management for Innovation (I-University), Keio University, Yokohama National University, and National Institute of Information and Communication Technology (NICT).

According to Prof. Heri, the field of cybersecurity is the main focus in cooperation discussions, as this field is crucial for facing cybersecurity challenges in the digital age.

“As a first step, discussions were conducted to understand research activities, legal rules, and cybersecurity learning approaches in Japan. From discussions with partners, we identified opportunities that can be explored more deeply to create a secure and resilient cyber environment for Indonesia,” he said.

In addition to universities, the UI team also visited some of Japan's leading cybersecurity companies, including LAC Co., Ltd., Japan Cybersecurity Innovation Committee (JCIC), Japan Network Security Association (JNSA), JICA Headquarters, and Trend Micro Inc. This strategic

move was made to build a holistic collaboration between academia and industry. Prof. Heri said this collaboration could expand international cooperation in the field of education, as well as develop technologies in the field of cybersecurity.

“FTUI is committed to continuing to play an active role in supporting the development of science and technology, particularly in areas as fundamental as this,” he said.

The UI team also supports the headquarters of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as a partner in full support of this activity. In a courtesy meeting, UI and JICA representatives discussed several strategic issues, including the sustainability of cooperation in the development of human resources (HR) cybersecurity initiated since 2019.

The two established IDCare as a centre of excellence and initiative at the ASEAN level and beyond. Until now, IDCare has supported the development of cybersecurity HR in Indonesia and many other countries, such as East Timor, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Mongolia, and Bhutan.
