PLDT and its subsidiaries Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) and ePLDT joined forces with the Philippine Air Force (PAF) to assist in beefing up its cybersecurity capabilities.
Under the agreement, PLDT Group, through its Cyber Security Operations Group (CSOG), will provide training for the PAF’s “Cyber warriors”, enhance the military service’s cyber operations and upgrade the security of its digital infrastructure.
PLDT will use its learning modules for the cybersecurity training program that includes both lectures and hands-on sessions. Participants will also work alongside with PLDT’s cybersecurity team in hands-on management, operation and administration of cybersecurity operations.
“We are one with the government in ensuring that our country is safe from cyber threats,” said PLDT chair and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan.
“We look forward to more engagements with the Philippine Air Force and the Armed Forces of the Philippines on this front,” Pangilinan added.
