With 74 million active internet users, the Philippines has been constantly battling a rich state of cybercrime. So much so that the National Bureau of Investigation’s Cybercrime Division recorded a 200 percent increase in the phishing campaigns since the country went into lockdown in March 2020.
Taking heed from the situation, Tradepass has taken the initiative to host the 2nd edition PhilSec on 12-13 July 2022 in Manila. In a pursuit to bolster the country’s cyber landscape, the mega scale cybersecurity summit now has Allan S Cabanlong, the author of National Cybersecurity Plan 2022 and Joey Fontiveros, the Deputy Commander/Commanding Officer-Army Signal Regiment as its Advisory Board Members.

In a statement issued, following the association announcement for the Advisory board, Allan S Cabanlong expressed, “PhilSec 2022 is one of a kind event that brings together cybersecurity experts around the globe to discuss pressing issues of cyber threats and cyber risks. I spoke and gave my insights in PhilSec 2021 which was held online and looking forward to a more collaborative engagement through a face-to-face conference this July in the Philippines! Kudos to the organizers.”

“PhilSec 2022 will be an exciting one as this will be a big convention of knowledge exchange across industry practitioners who demonstrated excellence and commitment in their respective domains. This is also the time to hear about actual experiences that will enable the participants to apply in its work environment as a guide to better manage the challenges that come along,” said Mel Migrino, Vice President and Group CISO, Meralco.
