PSA to Issue 7 Million National ID’s in 2019

At a FINTQ-hosted discussion last Tuesday, National Statistician and Civil Registrar General of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), Lisa Grace S. Bersales revealed that around 7 million Filipinos, including indigents, will be the first to be issued the ID.

Bersales also mentioned that they are working with the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) for the proof of concept and plan to do a privacy impact assessment and a vulnerability test while conducting the PoC.

She added that her agency is taking a “privacy by design” approach and will be working with the Department of Information and Technology (DICT), the National Privacy Commission, the National ID Council, the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank to ensure the security of the data.
