Malacanang, NPC to Increase Data Privacy Awareness Campaign

Earlier this week, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea signed Proclamation No. 527 which directs the National Privacy Commission to lead efforts that will raise awareness about the protection of the data privacy rights of Filipinos.

The proclamation says that “The State recognizes the vital role of information and communications technology in nation-building and its inherent obligation to ensure that personal information in information and communications systems in the government and the private sector are secured and protected,” the proclamation read.”

Organizations such as government-owned and -controlled corporations, as well as state universities and colleges are being required to participate in the information campaign.
