President Director and CEO IndosatM2 Hari Sukmono gave a general lecture at the University of Muhammadiyah Malang Theater Dome (UMM) on Monday (3/18) morning. The presence of the head of the internet and multimedia company was a follow-up to the collaboration between UMM and IndosatM2 some time ago. On this occasion, Hari gave lectures on digital literacy to Informatics Engineering students at the Faculty of Engineering UMM.

Mentioned Hari, digital literacy must be announced because most internet users in Indonesia were still digitally illiterate to get the full potential of the Internet. "Rapid technological progress needs to be balanced by the intelligence of users; users must have the ability to identify the reliability of online sources and combat fake news, hoaxes, and discrimination online, "he said.

Internet, continued Hari, had changed the world that humans live in today, including changing the way we work. Furthermore, digital literacy was very important for future work. "No less important, in digital literacy, internet users need to understand the importance of protecting personal information and personal details so that they are not misused by irresponsible people," said Hari.

Digital literacy consisted of three activities. They were finding, evaluating and consuming digital content; create digital content, and communicate or share it.
