Here we also remind students that your fingers are your tiger, "said the UMA Dean of Law.
Furthermore, the UMA Ractor in his remarks as well as opening the seminar said to Millennials Students and Students must be smart in using social media (social media). Because almost every day there are cases of violations of the Law (UU) Information and Electronic Transactions (ITE) that befall the citizens of Indonesia, we do not want millennial generations such as students and students entangled in violations of ITE because of their ignorance. Therefore, millennials must be careful if they receive news disseminated on social media. Millennials must know which news is appropriate or not worth sharing, "the UMA Rector said.
Meanwhile, Saut Aritonang in his presentation said, if properly used social media and digital technology will be a blessing for the Indonesian people. Among these can be to strengthen friendship and unite citizens from Sabang to Marauke. For this reason, I remind my children, students, in social media, do not let negative content in it. Fill with useful things. Share only the information that we have filtered out the truth and its benefits. Do not let our thumbs faster than thoughts when dealing with social media, "said North Sumatra Disdik Staff.
While Iptu Victor Richard Pasaribu revealed, North Sumatra Regional Police have activated the cyber crime team (cyber crime) to monitor cyberspace activities.

What is disseminated or developed in cyberspace, the North Sumatra Regional Police's Directorate of Cyber ??Sub-Directorate Team will find out, "said Victor.
