BANDUNG, Indonesia – Police in West Java are ramping up efforts to patrol online content and monitor suspicious online activities in the region, local media reported.
Police are stepping up measures to anticipate actions by terror networks. Attempts are being made to trace internet access by hackers who break into investment sites, following the recent arrest of a computer hacker in Bandung. He was linked to a terror network in Medan who is suspected of hacking to raise funds.
"Now that terror networks in cyberspace have been exposed, West Java police have stepped up cyber patrols," Martinis Sitompul, a spokesman for West Java Police in Bandung, told reporters Tuesday (September 4th).
The cyber-crime team constantly tracks and monitors suspicious traffic in the virtual world and conducts anticipatory operations, he added.
