Expedite NCP – cybersecurity advocates

CYBERSECURITY and Data Protection Communities of Practice urge the Philippine government to expedite the implementation of the National Cybersecurity Plan 2023-2028 to protect Filipino citizens and the Philippines’ Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) from global and local cyberthreats.

“The continuing attacks of Philippine government online sites and information systems are indicators that threat actors are deliberately targeting vital online ecosystems to cause harm to the country’s digital ecosystems,” Lito Averia, president of the Philippine Computer Emergency Response Team (PH-CERT) said. “These cyberattacks are also targeting Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) along with their ecosystems, which include private institutions such as banks, health care institutions and schools.”
