New deadline to be set for the annual report of security incidents
At last night's meeting KnowledgeNet meeting of the local chapter of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), Deputy Commissioner Leandro Angelo Aguirre of the National Privacy Commission announced that submission of the annual report of security incidents will be postponed to a later date. The move comes after the NPC received a lot of queries on the nature of security incidents to be included in the report. The NPC earlier issued a press release detailing the security incidents subject of the report. According to Dep. Comm. Aguirre, the NPC will be issuing new guidelines on the annual report after they complete revisiting the reporting requirements.
Meanwhile, the NPC remains steadfast on the 08 March 2018 deadline for the registration of personal data processing systems (DPS). While Dep. Comm Aquirre noted that a lot of companies are still experiencing issues in accessing the site, he encouraged companies to continue their efforts to complete their DPS.
