NPC Vows to Address Privacy Issues of National ID System

NPC commissioner Raymund Liboro said this week that it is ready to address the privacy risks that may be brought by the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) proposal, which is expected to be ratified by Congress.

Liboro assured that the Commission is looking to build trust with the people by mitigating risks of breaches and leakages, and that it will ensure other government agencies comply to the Data Privacy Act (DPA) when handling or processing personal data.

Liboro also clarified that punishment for violations such as unauthorized collection, disclosure or access, or malicious disclosure under PhilSys legislations and the DPA will be imposed separately.
