Official message from Privacy Commissioner Raymund Enriquez Liboro, regarding the reported hacking of PLDT’s Twitter account:

“The NPC has data breach notification protocols in place which we expect companies to follow. PLDT has a working data protection team that should be on top of its data breach response looking into this incident. We are awaiting their official report on the matter. And should this incident give rise to a real risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects, then, they are required, to notify all the data subjects affected so they can take the necessary measures to protect themselves against the possible effects of the breach.”

Privacy Commissioner
