30 May Malacanang: Duterte Committed to Enforcing Data Privacy Act
In his speech at the National Data Privacy Conference this week, Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go confirmed that the Duterte Administration is committed to enforcing the Data Privacy Act of 2012.
As the event’s guest of honor, Go also urged the public to be vigilant against cybercriminals, who are transnational in nature and will seek to violate privacy laws to profit from stolen mobile number information, email addresses and credit card numbers.
Go also said that people should not be complacent about data privacy, especially after the recent scandal involving Facebook and Cambridge Analytica which may have compromised the personal data of millions of Filipinos.
