Japan's NEC Corporation has signed an agreement with an Indonesian government agency to collaborate on developing cyber security capabilities in the southeast Asian nation.
NEC said work would be channelled through a memorandum of understanding signed on 22 September with the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology's security incident response team on internet infrastructure/co-ordination centre.
NEC said it would collaborate with the agency to design a "security operation centre" (SOC) that meets cyber security requirements of the Indonesian government and its respective bureaus.
Under the agreement NEC will also outline a plan for human resources development to support the SOC and explore opportunities to develop countermeasures against increasing instances of cyber attacks in Indonesia.
