My Personal Insights about Data Privacy Act

Ever since the world has gone digital with the advent of internet, our lives are never the same. Our lifestyle is already hooked online. Since information is also considered an investment, we also need to secure our data since there are already threats in cyberspace because of hackers. There are already incidents of websites and information hacked from biggest companies that we never imagined. We only thought that this only happen in the movies like Hackers back in the 90’s.

The government is also concerned about this which is why the Digital Privacy Act was implemented and with coordination of IT companies like Microsoft Philippines will aim to provide solutions to the threat. During the briefing I attended, I was also concerned because if this can happen to big companies and institutions, what can some smaller scale companies and websites can do.

As a small scale consumer, it also disturbs me that because everything is digital. Microsoft makes this their commitment to the consumers. They suggested that we should go put everything in the cloud. Microsoft has their own Cyber Ops Center and servers spread all over the globe.

The tools is already available since almost all already have Windows 10, businesses can rely on Microsoft products like Office 365 and Azure to help secure information privacy. For more tech insights, follow this blog and like L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
