Security Laws in the Philippines

At this time, the proposed amendments are not yet in force, as the legislation relating to these amendments has not yet been passed. Is it illegal in this jurisdiction to access third-party data without permission? Is it illegal to store data that has been accessed without permission? Unauthorized access to third-party data may be illegal under several laws in the Philippines. If the data is accessed and stored by a third party without the permission of the data owner, access and storage may be considered a criminal offense under the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 (Republic Act No. 10175; The Cybercrime Act violates the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and IT systems. Depending on the nature and extent of the act committed, unauthorized access may be classified as an offence: Illegal access – Access to all or part of a computer system without rights. Unlawful interception – Interception by technical means without right of non-public transmission of computer data to, from or within a computer system, including electromagnetic emissions from a computer system carrying such computer data. Data interference—The intentional or reckless alteration, damage, deletion or deterioration of computer data, electronic documents or electronic data messages without rights, including the introduction or transmission of viruses. System failures—The intentional modification or reckless obstruction or disruption of the operation of a computer or computer network by entering, transmitting, damageting, deleting, deteriorating, altering or deleting computer data or programs, electronic documents or electronic data messages without right or authority, including the introduction or transmission of viruses. Misuse of equipment: The obligation to conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) stems from the PIC obligation to take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, alteration and disclosure, as well as other unlawful processing. In determining the appropriate level of security, prior informed consent shall take into account the type of personal data to be protected, the risks posed by the processing, the size of the organisation and the complexity of its operations, current data protection best practices and the cost of implementing security. The law states that each entity involved in data processing and subject to the law must develop, implement and review procedures for the collection of personal data, obtaining consent, limiting processing to defined purposes, managing access, using data subjects and appropriate data retention policies. These requirements require the creation of a data protection program. The legal requirements for technical security measures also require a company to have a security program.

The revised Penal Code (Revision of the Penal Code and Other Penal Laws No. 3815 of December 8, 1930) (PRC) contains numerous crimes committed by the Philippines, including crimes related to national security, such as treason (Articles 114 to 116), piracy and mutiny on the high seas (Articles 122 to 123), riots (Articles 139 to 142), illegal assembly and association (Articles 146 to 147), and unlawful means of publication and declaration (Article 154). Section 5 Qualifications.

The IRR stipulates that any natural or legal person involved in the processing of personal data must designate one or more persons to act as DPOs and whose role includes compliance with applicable privacy and security laws and regulations. With respect to the private sector, there is currently no data localization requirement in the Philippines that specifically governs personal data, subject to applicable provisions of Philippine data protection laws, including, but not limited to, the need for data subject consent (if required) and data transfer requirements. Here are the main privacy and security laws and regulations in the Philippines: Section 6. License required. Section 14 Uniform. The uniform of the guard or security guard, as well as those organized, maintained or employed by the government or government and/or controlled enterprises, agencies or entities, are different from the uniform worn and prescribed for members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the municipal and municipal police.

The Chief of the Philippine Mounted Police, through his duly authorized representative, shall prescribe the uniform or ornaments, equipment and accessories to be worn by security forces and security guards in the Philippines. Over the past decade, the Philippines has passed two laws primarily aimed at counter-terrorism: the Human Security Act (2007) and the Prevention and Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism Act (2012). 3. Arrest and detention. Any peace office or private person may arrest a person without a warrant if: (a)if, in his presence, the person to be arrested has committed, is actually committing or attempting to commit any of the offences covered by this Act; or (b) if any of those offences has actually been committed and the Minister has reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed it.
