If the USA, UK and Australia can't prevent their security services being hacked I doubt Indonesia has a chance.

Suppressing hacking to a significant extent would require changes to the protocols of the Internet. Software and hardware changes.

It isn't going to happen, not just due to laziness, but also since our own governments like the ability to spy on us discretely.

Adding security to the Internet would make the spying on us and on other governments more difficult and more noticeable. It is a price they are not prepared to pay.

Suggestion to Indonesia

Step 1 - Permanently exclude anyone, who actually uses the word "cyber", from this project or anything IT-related.

Fee for this piece of advice is a small one-off payment of 1M squid - it will save you much more in the long run:D
