Cyber Violence with Biosocial Perspective and The Role of Preventive Legislative Mechanism


  • Slamet Suhartono


The term biosocial in this study stands for a social variable that can potentially influence violence or cybercrime through a biological mechanism. This study adopted Owen (2014a)’s Genetic-Social and meta-theoretical framework to conceptualize cybercrimes and build a model of cyber violence that could help in predicting aggressive online behavior and the role of the state legislatures to prevent these types of cybercrimes. The study adopted a historical-normative research method which involved documentation search and archive segmentation according to the research variables. In this qualitative study, the data was collected from various sources including cyber law archives, databases and repositories. The data was analyzed with two research methods: system analysis and synthesis of internal and external documentation on the topic under study. The findings of the study revealed that cybercrimes and the related delinquent and criminal behavior are the results of the interaction between the human biological predispositions and social interactions. The study recommends establishing a National Cybersecurity Authority or A national level Cyber Security Guidance bureau to develop, implement, and supervise administrative and legal mechanism and strategies.
