NPC wants Pinoy hackers to help with national ID
These tech greats will be called “hack bayani.”
The National Privacy Commission (NPC) has reached out to white-hat hackers who joined a two-day conference in Tagaytay City.
Liboro personally addressed the crowd of programmers and gave them the patriotic task of helping secure the Philippine ID system, which will take charge of building a national database of personal information for all Pinoys.
?We can do a lot more to help protect the data that will come out of PhilSys processing. You can do your part in it as well as ?hackers ng bayan? and indeed I strongly urge you to help government make this right. The need for your voice is now more acute,? Liboro told the group of nearly 300 programmers.
Are they up to the challenge?
