Hima SIB ISTTS is holding an online webinar which will be held on Saturday, 17 October 2020, to be precise at 10.00-12.30. This webinar is open to internal and external participants through the Zoom platform and also Live Youtube. This webinar feels different because ISTTS collaborates with Surabaya Hacker Link with the topic "Network and Cyber Security". The webinar was presented by 2 speakers at the same time, namely Mr. Haris Dwi and Mr. Jonias Fortuna.
The webinar begins with Mr. Haris explaining that since the Covid-19 outbreak, cyber crime has increased by 30% worldwide. This happens because we are required to work from home. Mr. Haris also talked about the methods employed by a hacker, namely the Phishing and Sniffing methods. Phishing method means fishing, for example, suppose we receive an email from someone and it contains a document and contains an invitation to open the document. Pak Haris suggested not to open the document because he was afraid there was malware in the document. The next method is the Sniffing method, for example if we see a wifi network that is not locked, especially if the network is fast, it will automatically provoke us to use it. In fact, the network may be set up in such a way that hackers can see whoever enters and any packets that travel on the network.
The webinar was then continued by Mr. Jonias Fortuna who is familiarly called Mr. Jo. Mr. Jo explained an incident that had shocked the world and happened in July. Twitter accounts belonging to famous celebrities ranging from Bill Gates and even Apple suddenly offer Bitcoin hoaxes. Twitter was attacked by hackers. Hackers asked followers of the hijacked accounts to send bitcoin cryptocurrency to digital wallets. This incident is a hack that could be the worst ever to happen on social media. Fortunately, Twitter immediately took quick action by not allowing the hijacked account to tweet for 2 hours. On this basis, Pak Jo also advised us not to rush to believe in something that is not certain. If not, our personal data will be leaked and can even be traded freely by irresponsible persons.
At the end of the material, the resource person provides several important suggestions. One of them is to make a password, it should be at least 13 characters, which is a combination of numbers, letters and symbols. "Be more careful in posting something on social media, because now there is an ITE Law and we have to be responsible for whatever we post," said the source to the webinar participants who mostly actively use social media. The webinar ended with a question and answer session then continued with a group photo session and attendance.
