In 2023, cybersecurity risks were a major concern, with several high-profile incidents targeting government agencies in the Philippines. The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, the Philippine National Police, the National Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Science and Technology, and the Philippine Statistics Authority all experienced data breaches, affecting millions of individuals. Additionally, businesses both in and out of the country fell victim to ransomware attacks and phishing scams. Jon Clairmond Siy, Chief Security Officer of Shellsoft Technology Corporation, emphasized the need for increased cybersecurity efforts, particularly for micro, small, and medium enterprises. He also stressed the importance of assessing digital infrastructure and promoting a strong cybersecurity culture in the workplace. President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. echoed these sentiments, directing the Department of Information and Communication to enhance cybersecurity efforts for public agencies. Siy urged organizations to stay proactive and vigilant in addressing cybersecurity threats.
