Sector name: Tax and Financial Services

Recommendation: Implementation of the Data Privacy Act

Status: On-going

Action taken: Based on the provisions of R.A. 10173, the National Privacy Commission is mandated to produce the IRR of the Data Privacy Act. However, there the National Privacy Commission is to be attached to the DICT, which does not yet exist. We continue to engage with government stakeholders to highlight the importance of the Data Privacy Act and seek solutions to this, either through the creation of a DICT or amendments to R.A. 10173 which will allow the National Privacy Commission to be attached to DOST.
