Pagbuo ng task force para imbestigahan ang spam messages, itinutulak

Inihirit sa Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) at Data Privacy Commission na magkasama ng mas malalim na imbestigasyon sa biglang pagdami ng text spams kung saan daan-daan na ang nabibiktima.

Ayon kay AP party-list Rep. Ronnie Ong, seryosong data privacy breach ang mass leakage ng mga pribadong numero na ginamit ng scam syndicates.

Kailangan aniyang bigyang-atensyon ng gobyerno ang ilegal na aktibidad.

Ani Ong, dapat bumuo ng special task force na tututok sa spam text surge.

Giit pa ng mambabatas, kailangang ma-review at amyendahan ang Republic Act 10173 o Data Privacy Act upang mapalawak ang sakop at madagdagan ang parusa sa data privacy violations.

“The surge of spam texts coming from swindling syndicates and internet hackers is very alarming. The government should take very serious steps to expose the people who are responsible for this massive data breach,” saad ng kongresista.

Dagdag nito, “How did they get our numbers? Who is responsible for this leakage of personal data?”

Hindi aniya simpleng law enforcement issue ang malawakang data privacy breach dahil mayroon din itong national security implications.

“Possession of massive private data can be exploited by cyber-terrorists to create disinformation and instigate social unrest. At this day and age where nearly all Filipinos are dependent on their mobile devices and the internet, it is now so easy to sow fear and destroy our sense of security,” pahayag ni Ong.
