Wazzup Pilipinas!

On 8 March 2017 Microsoft Philippines held an event entitled “Data Privacy Act: A Priority for Businesses” at the event, Microsoft issued a press release that stated:
“In 2012, it passed into law, the Philippine Data Privacy Act (Republic Act No. 10173) that aims to protect every individual’s information recorded on any IT and communication system in both government and private sectors. 
While it has been a law for the last 5 years, businesses and organizations are required to comply with it by September 9, 2017.”
The National Privacy Commission (NPC) would like to clarify that the law is explicit in its provisions and has been in effect since 2012. Businesses and organizations that collect and process personal data are already required to be compliant with the DPA. As such, for data processors in both private and government sectors, appointing an accountable officer in the person of a Data Protection Officer is a must and shouldn’t be delayed any further.

The Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the DPA however, which took effect on 8 September 2016, provides for a transitory period of one year for Personal Information Controllers (PICs) and Personal Information Processors (PIPs) to register their data processing systems with the NPC, subject to the requirements of section 47 (Registration of Personal Data Processing Systems) of the IRR.

According Privacy Commissioner Raymund Enriquez Liboro; “The NPC is working with PICs and PIPs in government and various industries in developing a culture of privacy, and building resilience against data breaches from the ground up. We are committed in helping businesses as well as citizens in becoming self-reliant in personal data protection.”

“While technology tools are important, these alone will not prevent the violation of data subjects’ rights and ensure compliance with the DPA As, such, the Commission is not endorsing any particular vendor looking to promote the data protection features of their products” Chairman Liboro said.

About the NPC: The National Privacy Commission is a regulatory and quasi-judicial body organized by virtue ofRA 10173, otherwise known as the Data Privacy Act of 2012. The agency is mandated to uphold the right to data privacy and ensure the free-flow of information, with a view to promoting economic growth and innovation.

  1. Hello,

    My wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
