Achieving Compliance with the Philippines Data Privacy Act of 2012 with PAM

Cybercriminals have long sought to exploit technological vulnerabilities to gain access to sensitive electronic data and personal information, and can cause significant hardships for any business, government entity, or consumer whose private information may be revealed or stolen for illicit purposes. The Philippines is a significant target for cyber threats due to its geographical region and hub for global commerce.

Given the severity of the issue and the risk to Philippine entities, certain regulatory minimum standards are warranted to mitigate flaws in technological advancements and data privacy. To that end, BeyondTrust has mapped its security and operational solutions to the Republic of the Philippines Act No. 10173, formally known as the “Data Privacy Act of 2012”.

Pursuant to the mandate of the National Privacy Commission to administer and implement the provisions of the Data Privacy Act of 2012, and to monitor and ensure compliance of the country with international standards set for data protection, rules and regulations have been defined and implemented to ensure cyber security for sensitive personal information within the country and international commerce. The goal is to combat the ever-growing threat posed by the theft of personal information by nation-states, terrorist organisations and independent criminal actors.

This regulation is designed to:
  • Promote the protection of sensitive personal and business information

  • Promote the protection of information technology systems from fraudulent access to personal data

  • Require entities and their affiliates to assess their risk profiles and requirements for access

  • Implement a process and procedure that addresses privacy issues

  • Define penalties and data breach notifications for infractions and noncompliance

The penalties are hefty. Professionals and organisations operating in the Philippines that fail to protect sensitive personal information due to negligence may face possible imprisonment of up to six years and a fine of up to four million pesos (Php4,000,000.00).

The number of cyber events has been steadily increasing and estimates of potential risk to consumers, governments, and business entities are irrefutable. Adoption of this cybersecurity program and standardisation on policies and procedures is the only way to insure the security of personal data in the Republic of the Philippines. BeyondTrust solutions for Privileged Access Management and Vulnerability Management can meet the requirements and provide coverage for many of the sections in Act 10173.
