Ruffy Biazon: PH should learn to ramp up defense vs cyber attacks

0

Ruffy Biazon said the Philippines should consider the latest source of chaos in the United States as a cautionary tale.

The Muntinlupa congressman grew alarmed as violence ensued among some Americans –– this time, over something seemingly as petty as fuel supply. Apparently, a wide cyber attack targeting the operations of fuel pipelines led to a supply shortage in gasoline stations abroad, triggering panic buying and violence after a six-day halt.

“Cyberattacks is how warfare will be done in the future. This is the reason why we should ensure that our technology-dependent systems are secure,” the politiko warned.
