Indonesia’s position as the largest economy in Southeast Asia has fueled its rise in the Cloud Computing, and Data Center industry. Coupled with relatively low startup and operational costs, the country is rivaling traditional Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity, and Data Center hubs. Data Centers in Jakarta alone are set to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.8% in the years 2019-2024 , the highest for any city in Southeast Asia (Cushman & Wakefield Datacenter Report 2019).
The central government’s decision to enact and relax Data Sovereignty Laws, has served as a framework for the industry at large. Strict data localization laws, once created a regulatory structure that drove demand. However, the subsequent move to ease legal restrictions, and the continued robust demand, has reassured the major players in the industry. Fears of a market crash were quickly allayed. This flexibility and willingness to evolve makes Indonesia distinct from many of its closest competitors.

Case Study: The Current State of Data Sovereignty and Localization in Indonesia
People are effectively relying on either international regulation, or blind trust in the self-policing of data storage firms. With proper data sovereignty policies, the jurisdiction falls to the government, which should safeguard the protection of it’s citizen’s data. For years, Indonesian law has had strict data localization requirements since 2012. Government has mandated that all electronic system operators who provide “public services” must establish a data center in Indonesia. However, in October 2019, Indonesia relaxed the data localization requirement by limiting the application to “public electronic system operators”. This session will explore what are the considerations when navigating Indonesia’s data sovereignty ecosystem.
