Campaign launched against cybercrimes

The Bankers Association of the Philippines launched online campaign Be Aware, Be Cybersafe to raise public awareness on cybersecurity amid growing concerns of cyber attackers shifting their focus to the Asia-Pacific region.

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas earlier asked BSP-supervised financial institutions to participate in the BAP Cybersecurity Incident Database to strengthen the banking industry’s resilience to cyber-attacks. “The world is so wired now that cybersecurity is everyone’s concern. The Cybersafe campaign is our way of raising awareness and partnering with the general public to prevent cyber-crimes,” said BAP president and BPI president and chief executive Cezar Consing. 

The campaign will promote cyber awareness through regular posting of online content about tips and need-to-know concepts, giving the public a better appreciation of cybersecurity. The association is bullish that the online campaign will help the public become more cyber-literate and vigilant.
