MANILA – The National Privacy Commission (NPC) collaborated with Campaigns & Grey (C&G) to educate Filipinos on our right to data privacy.
“Data privacy is now a mainstream issue, it’s not a splinter issue. Slowly but surely, Filipinos are now realizing how data privacy and security is impacting their daily lives,” said Raymund Enriquez Liboro, Commissioner and Chairman of NPC. “A year ago, we conducted our own survey, and we found out that 94% of Filipinos are actually interested in knowing how personal data are being processed,” Liboro added.
NPC celebrated Privacy Awareness Week recently and wanted to raise more awareness on online theft and that data privacy rights should be properly exercised.
“Campaigns & Grey is one with National Privacy Commission in making Filipinos realize that their online data could be stolen any time,” said Eugene Demata, chief creative officer of C&G. “We want to be direct, but still strategic, in spreading the message that online theft is now a global issue that we must act on.”
