01 Mar Makati Introduces Own Manual in Support of Data Privacy Act
The Makati City government recently made moves to fast track compliance with the Data Privacy Act of 2012, with Mayor Abby Binay expressing the full commitment of her administration to the pursuit of compliance with RA 10173.
Binay also revealed that the city is already working on its own Privacy Management Program and Privacy Manual. She stressed that as the country’s financial center, Makati’s compliance should boost investor confidence and elevate the city’s image as an ideal investment destination in the region.
The mayor had initiated the registration of Makati City in the Data Privacy System of the National Privacy Commission (NPC) in September 2017 and designated Atty. Joselino N. Sucion as the city’s data protection officer (DPO).
