Philippine Data Protection Act (PDPA) Compliance

Philippine Data Protection Act (PDPA) Compliance

The Philippine Data Privacy Act was adopted to ‘safeguard the fundamental human right of every individual to privacy while ensuring free flow of information for innovation, growth, and national development’.

At the same time, these acts also recognize the vital role of information and communications technology and enforce the State’s inherent obligation to ensure that personal data in information and communications systems in the government and in the private sector are secured and protected.

It’s crucial for business leaders to understand the PDPA and the implications for non-compliance. This will allow them to minimize risk to their data, business and avoid heavy fines and even imprisonment.


    • Safe-T has been designed with compliance as a top priority. Safe-T’s solution prevents unauthorized access to data services, networks, or APIs; this prevents data exfiltration, leakage, malware, ransomware and fraud. Safe-T ensures your customers’ data is not compromised, thereby enabling enterprises to achieve PDPA compliance.


    • The directive of the PDPA is to ensure that companies collecting or processing personal data do not compromise that data. To achieve this, companies must follow strict Authentication, Access Control, Encryption, Integrity, and Audit standards.


    • Safe-T has controls in place to ensure that only authorized users will have access, it can encrypt information in transit and at rest using SSH and SSL protocols, has connectors to Anti-virus and DLP scanning solutions and provides event and action logging to achieve strict auditing compliance.
