Ensuring a trusted telecommunications customer journey
The move comes as part of the telecommunications firm’s continuing efforts and commitment towards their customers amidst a digital climate where data breaches are more prevalent.
Atty. Adel A. Tamano, Chief Administrative Officer, DITO Telecommunity Corporation, said, “Filipinos have come to rely on dependable connectivity as a result of the pandemic. And this of course has highlighted digital risks that need to be monitored closely. By implementing DPaaS, DITO will have additional support in our data protection efforts for our customers. The service provides us with the ability to monitor and take action on data protection risks expeditiously as well as train new and existing staff in data protection matters.”
