DICT’s Allan Cabanlong shares Philippines’ cybersecurity game plan

Adrian M. Reodique | April 28, 2017
DICT’s Assistant Secretary for Cybersecurity and Enabling Technologies talked about the initiatives the Philippines will be taking to strengthen its cyber defences at the Computerworld Philippines Security Summit 2017.

However, Cabanlong noted that the biggest challenge to incorporating cybersecurity into schools is the lack of professors who can teach the programme. To address this, DICT will implement a Training of Trainers (ToT) project, and partner George C. Marshall Centre (GCMC) — a centre for security studies — to help train teachers on how to teach cybersecurity.

Besides the education sector, Cabanlong said that DICT is also offering training programmes to law enforcement officers to help them identify and catch cyber criminals. In addition, there are programmes  to help lawyers and judges better understand cyber-related cases and facilitate its resolution.
