Internet users in the world increased rapidly in recent years. Based on statistics from internetworldstats.com, Internet users in 1998 was still below 200 million, but now internet users has reached 1.8 billion ranging from children to adult. The amount represents 26% of world population. In Indonesia itself, Internet users reached 30 million people or approximately 12.5% of the population in Indonesia with teenagers as the dominant user reaches 64% of Internet users in Indonesia. The rapid growth of the Internet is triggered by the ease of access. Now, not only computers that can access the internet but also mobile phones that costs relatively cheaper and easy to explore the virtual world.

Internet has many benefits, among others are to search information, to share ideas and information through personal sites (blogs) and mailing list; to conduct online financial transaction; to interact through social networks (Facebooks, twitter) and others ease to access the Internet.

However, the increase in Internet usage has led to negarive impacts and hazards. Online Child protection Division og the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) reveled that 30% of adolescents in the United States have experienced sexual abuse via the Internet, 30% of teenagers in China addicted to the Internet and 44% og teenagers in China interacted with strangers when they was online on the Internet. According to fraudpreventiontips.com, losses due to credit card (carding) in 2007 reached 52.6 billion USD. Symantec reported there were 711.000 new computer viruses in 2008. That means the development of new viruses grew almost 2.000 viruses per day.

Therefore, the government and the ICT community design a program, named Internet Sehat and Aman (Healthy and Safe Internet). This program has been commencing in early year 2009 and in general, performing in three approaches to anticipate crime offenses in information technology field that is, Technology, Law and Socio Cultural Approach.

Technology approaches are carried out by preparing several technical standards, establish ID-SIRTII (Indonesia - Security Incident Response Team on Information Insfrastucture), build a Community Access Point (CAP), Smart Village and the Information Society Marjet (Warmasif), and others. In addition,the governmenet with ICT community who care about the negative impact of internet use also formed ID-CERT (Indonesia Computer Emergency Response-Team), to encourage innovation of creative industries in software applications and content with holding Indonesia ICT Award (INAICTA), to create and develop a device Healthy and Safe Internet for Indonesian Children (PERISAI) as well as protection of using a list of healthy and reliable information (Trust Positive). The governemnet is also improving coordination with the organizers of electronic system such as the Association of Information Technology, Telecommunication Operators and Banking Players. One prominent case is Nawala Project initiated by Public Internet Association of Indonesia (AWARI), in the forms of DNS filtering that will filter and block the types of negative content that is not compliant eith legislation, values and social norms, customs and morals of Indonesia such as pornography and gambling. Additionally, Nawala Project will also block hamful content such as malware, phising sites (misdirection) and others.

The legal approach is implemented through the Act of Republic of Indonesia Number 11 Year 2008 on Information and Electronic Transaction (UU ITE) which was ratified on April 21, 2008. ITE regulation was prepared in order to ensure legal certainty in the field if Information and Electronic Transaction and as the protection of electronic-based activities or activities of potential crimes and abuse of technology. This Act adheres to principal of extra territorial jurisdiction, which can ensnare the entire activity of Information and Electronic Transaction misapplication, in anywhere that harm the state of Indonesia. Therefore, ITE regulation continues to be socialized into various circles of society.
