Striving to bring responsible innovations to the markets they serve, the PLDT Group Privacy Office recently organized a forum to strengthen the commitment of the company’s leaders and employees in upholding the highest standards of data privacy.

Alongside data privacy, the telco has also been a staunch advocate of cyber security, teaching Filipinos how to identify online threats and mitigate cybersecurity risks.


“Privacy and security always go together. We also need to build a cyber security mindset. We all know that an organization with a Culture of Cyber Security results in the highest level of data protection and data privacy,” said PLDT Chief Information Security Officer Angel T. Redoble.


The forum is part of a broader PLDT program to elevate customer experience and equip its employees as data privacy champions for customers.
