The digital world has increasingly underpinned wide-ranging aspects of our daily lives. While digital technology has provided opportunities for growth and development, the same created new threats or risks. Our increasing dependence on such technology only intimates that the cost of any disruption would likewise be high. Laws have been passed to protect and enforce the right to privacy of information. As the country continues to develop, so does its dependence on ICT-enabled services, and thus, cybersecurity has become a critical multi-sectoral concern that needs urgent action.
Stratbase ADR Institute held a round table discussion on Cybersecurity entitled “Developing a Cybersecure Culture” on March 12, 2018, in Makati City. Department of Information and Communications Technology’s Assistant Secretary for Cybersecurity and Enabling Technologies, Asec. Allan Cabanlong jump-started the discussion by providing a status of Cybersecurity in the Philippines, and Trends on Cybersecurity Threats and Risks.
