Solon pushes National Cyber Security Office

House Deputy Majority Floor Leader and ACT-CIS Cong. Erwin Tulfo has urged the national government to establish an agency that will protect and fight any attacks by hackers, or worse, by cyber terrorists, on the country’s computers and data systems.

The call was made by Tulfo in a chance interview over the weekend after a series of attacks by hackers on the computer data systems and websites of various government agencies such as PhilHealth, the Department of Information and Communications Technology and even the House of Representatives.

“We saw how vulnerable and helpless our government agencies when they are attacked by hackers on their websites or their computer files particularly our government agencies,” Tulfo said.

He added that even if the attack was fixed after a few days, there should be a move to prevent the problem before hackers launch an attack again.
