Globe Business Lends Cybersecurity Expertise to DICT’s e-Government Master Plan 2.0

Globe Business, the enterprise information and communications technology (ICT) arm of Globe Telecom, recently led a team of cybersecurity experts in conducting a focused group discussion (FGD) geared towards the development of the Department of Information and Communications Technology’s e-Government Master Plan 2.0 (eGMP 2.0).

The e-GMP 2.0 is a comprehensive master plan that aims to harmonize and integrate the ICT efforts of the national government. It plans to address the challenges of digitally transforming the government’s systems by developing strategies in focus areas such as cybersecurity, financial management, general administration and logistics, and data exchange to name a few.

Globe Business was invited to be part of the FGD on Cybersecurity and Security-in-Depth Systems that discussed a wide-range of topics to help equip the government sector with knowledge on addressing cybersecurity threats. The event, which Globe Business organized in partnership with the Infocomm Technology Association of the Philippines (ITAP) and DICT, gathered over 80 participants from 13 different national government agencies.

“We couldn’t be more pleased that DICT chose us as a business advisor and partner for this endeavor. Globe Business is leading the way in encouraging both the government and private sector to put in place measures to help them effectively respond to these increasingly complex cybersecurity challenges,” said Globe Business Senior Vice President Peter Maquera. Globe Business is also spearheading the #makeITsafePH campaign to empower Globe Business clients to safeguard sensitive corporate data and to protect company resources.

The plenary session featured Globe Business Senior Advisor for Support Services and Solutions Development Mike Sy as the keynote speaker. He discussed the fast-evolving cybersecurity landscape and a framework that aims to help the government sector set up a solid foundation for cybersecurity and strengthen their security posture. The other subject matter experts took on the breakout sessions to discuss the areas of emergency response systems, forensics and analytics systems, national systems event information management, and threat intelligence management system.

In line with this initiative, Globe Business has lined up several solutions to combat cybercrime, protect data, and reduce security risks. These Managed Security Services ensures coverage in areas such as Vulnerability Assessment, Network Security, Application Security and Content Security, Endpoint Security and Access Control, and Security Management.

Early this year, Globe also launched its newly operationalized Advanced Security Operations Center (ASOC) powered by Trustwave. It is a state-of- the-art facility that houses the infrastructure and teams that deliver services such as customer service platform management, threat detection, threat hunting, and incident response for both Globe Telecom’s network and the network of its customers. It is linked to Trustwave’s global network of nine federated ASOCs and is supported by a worldwide team of more than 1,600 security-minded professionals.
