Globe Business takes lead in shielding enterprises from cyber-attacks
With the growing trend for corporations to take a proactive stance against cyber-attacks, Globe Business, the enterprise information and communications technology (ICT) arm of Globe Telecom, takes the lead in accelerating the adoption of managed security services across Philippine industries.
The importance of such services was underscored by Globe Business through its Relationship Management Group during the recently held CIO Night which gathered chief information executives and information security officers from over 40 various Globe conglomerate partners for a night of cybersecurity education and orientation.
“The frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks and breaches are on the increase across all industries. Hence, solutions which leverages on the latest ICT capabilities and innovations like Managed Security Services is more apparent. Allow us to help you protect your assets and your customers in order to safeguard your reputation against cybercrime,” said Albert de Larrazabal, Globe Chief Commercial Officer as he welcomed the CIOs.
Globe Business is working closely with industry-leaders in security to provide Managed Security Services with the tools and expertise necessary to protect a company’s network and assets. The holistic threat management approach is meant to help enterprises meet security, compliance, consolidation and cost concerns.
Multiple cybersecurity reports claim that the Philippines is increasingly becoming a hotspot of cybercrime attacks and threats. In 2015 alone, there were 781 recorded data breach incidents, a drastic increase to the 430 recorded data breaches of two years (2013-2014). A study by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations’ specialized agency for information and communication technologies, titled the Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) ranks the Philippines 16th out of 40 countries in terms of cybersecurity readiness.
Aside from providing security solutions, Globe is also putting premium in customer education which plays an important part in the fight for stronger cybersecurity. The #ProTECH101 campaign aims to inform customers about the dangers of online crimes and provide them with tips on how to keep accounts and other valuable information safe. The said tips include avoiding using weak passwords and sharing of personal information as well as information on the different kinds of cyber threats.
