Edmon Makarim also said that digital signature provides protection against identity theft and fraud attempts on online transactions. According to him, personal data identity and electronic transactions cannot be separated. Therefore, industries are highly encouraged to adopt digital signature solutions that are certified by the government and are in accordance with the applicable law within their business immediately.
