Operate on ‘assumed breach mode’ – PLDT tells enterprises

Telco giant PLDT warned companies to be ready for cyberattacks all the time and to always operate as if their systems have been breached.

“That should be the operating mode so that you would always stay vigilant that something might happen and you might be vulnerable to any cyberattack,” said PLDT Enterprise AVP and head of cybersecurity business consulting Alexis Bernardino.

He added that cyber infiltrations are “no longer a question of ‘if’ or ‘how'” but a matter of ‘when.’

Bernardino also noted that public-private partnership is essential for a safer Philippine cyberspace.

“There should be strong legislation pertaining to cybersecurity so that we can establish a framework and roadmap for the Philippines,” he said. “The private sector can come in to share their best practices, threat intelligence, and cybersecurity expertise to help the government, which is leading the pack to create a safer and secured Philippine cyberspace.”
