BACKGROUND

In the 2017 Global Cybersecurity Index, the Philippines ranked 37th among 193 members states. The Index is a key international measure of cybersecurity commitment and readiness compiled by the International Telecommunications Union. With the rise of e-commerce and growing integration of ICT and connectivity of critical infrastructure, the number of cybersecurity threats and data breaches has increased each year in the Philippines. Unsecured databases and the exposure of sensitive data remain the largest security risks for the country. The Philippine Government is working to develop and strengthen cybersecurity infrastructure and capabilities. As a global leader in the development and deployment of cybersecurity technologies, the U.S. private sector is poised to help fortify the network infrastructure in the Philippines.

Attendance at this event is limited to U.S. individuals, U.S. firms, or U.S. consultants as defined in USTDA’s Nationality, Source and Origin Requirements, available on USTDA’s website at www.ustda.gov.
