CYBERSECURITY

In the 2014-2015 Annual Cybercrime Report, the Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Cybercrime Group notes that there were 614 incidents reported. Twenty-two percent were internet frauds or scams, while 10% involved violations of the E-Commerce Act and R.A. 8484 or the Access Devices Regulation Act (ATM and credit card fraud).

With the enactment of the Cybercrime Law, the PNP, National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), and Department of Justice (DOJ) were given mandates and directions on dealing with cybercrime cases. However, for most cybercrime victims, the lack of an online process for cybercrime reporting and legal assistance make it difficult to file reports and sustain their complaints. This is especially so when service providers based abroad cannot provide the required supporting evidence.
