About the Guest Speaker
We have never given our personal information as easily as we do today. Technology, and the convenience it offers, has seduced us into handing over our names, addresses, and phone numbers so willingly. Personal data is exchanged for free online and offline services, loyalty card discounts, and personalized brand experiences, among others.
But giving out personal data comes at a potential cost. Security breaches happen where personal information gets destroyed, lost, altered or disclosed, accessed, and processed without consent. Many times, these instances lead to identity theft, fraud, duplication of credit cards, blackmail and damaged reputation — both among individuals and organizations.
These breaches are on the rise as organizations increasingly rely on digital data, making data protection more important than ever.
This is where we, the National Privacy Commission or NPC, come in.
The NPC exists to ensure compliance of the country with international standards set for data protection.
THE NATIONAL PRIVACY COMMISSION (NPC) is the Philippine government’s arm to make sure you remain in full control of your personal information in this digital age. As digital evolution and the need for data are inevitable, NPC safeguard your rights as a data subject while ensuring the free flow of information for innovation, growth, and national development.
Get to know more about what the NPC do to advocate privacy rights, and what you may do too, to help build a culture of privacy in the Philippines.
