NPC monitoring developments on data breach at TV network giant ABS-CBN

News of a possible data breach of ABS-CBN’s online stores has reached the National Privacy Commission this morning, where customers reportedly face the possibility of theft of their financial data due to a payment skimmer which has been discovered by a Dutch security researcher.

At 12:37 PM, the Commission has received a breach notification from the company’s Data Protection Officer (DPO), Jay C. Gomez. At around the same time, the company has also publicly disclosed the incident on Twitter.

 

We expect ABS-CBN’s DPO to act in accordance with breach management standards set forth by the Commission, and fully set in motion its breach response protocols, including the safeguarding of their systems and the prevention of possible harms to affected data subjects.

Hello, Cyber World! A journalist's passion for news, which for me is every and any kind of news, but specially on Science, Technology, Innovation, Digital, and Current News, or just about anything under Heaven, birthed this news platform. Disclosure: I am not a scientist nor an expert on anything Science, and not a techie either; just some journalist who loves and care to bring the good news and share them to everyone out there. It is a big, big physical world out there, but the Industrial Revolution 4.0, the Internet in the Digital Age, has shrunk Earth into one small virtual community. Each human being a "neighbor" to everyone in the Philippines and in any point of the compass. Whatever you may see or think could be my and this site's shortcoming, my apologies. So, there, please join me in my journey in cyberspace! Be home, be safe, be mindful of your neighbors, of the Creator! Thanks so much.
