e commerce jurisdicton – The Philippines is among the most expensive and least protected countries in the world.
However, the country has also recently experienced a surge in online fraud.
According to the Philippine National Police (PNP), in the first three months of 2018, there were 2,058 cases of frauds and cybercrime.
In 2018, a total of 9,062 cases of cybercrime were reported, a rise of 9.6% from the previous year.
As of March 2017, there was a total online crime incident of 4,621, and it is believed that this number has increased by more than 20% since the first quarter of 2017.
This trend will continue in the coming months as the number of online crimes will increase in a continuous fashion, according to PNP Director General Ronald dela Rosa.
As a result of these increased cybercrime cases, the government has launched the Cybercrime Prevention Strategy to reduce the risk of online crime.
The strategy aims to provide an overall solution to the issue of online fraud by the Philippine Cybercrime Task Force, including the National Anti-Corruption Commission, National Security Bureau, National Police, and National Cyber Crime Task Force.
According the National Police Commissioner, “We are looking at the whole system of online protection and prevention, and we are not talking about the government and the private sector.
We are going to be the ones doing the work of the internet.
We need to be responsible and work together with the private industry.”
Policies for Online Crime PreventionIn the Philippines, online fraud is a growing problem.
According a survey conducted by the CyberCrime Prevention Strategy, a group of leading law enforcement agencies including the PNP, the Philippine Computer Emergency Response Team, and the National Bureau of Investigation, 90% of respondents believe that online fraud cases are increasing.
The survey also found that most respondents do not feel that they are protected from online crime incidents, and that they have been victims of cyber crime as well.
“As of today, we have more than 1,500 cases of online scams.
The total number of cases is up from 826 last year, but the number continues to increase.
The most common reason for victims being victimized online is to collect money from someone,” said Chief Insp.
Roberto Nascimento, National Investigation and Investigation Group.
“Online fraud is rampant and we do not know how we are going back to a world without online fraud.”
The Cybercrime Strategy is a comprehensive approach to fight cybercrime by the government, private industry, and law enforcement.
The initiative aims to reduce online fraud incidents by encouraging government agencies to share information, develop policies, and educate citizens.
“The strategy is aimed at making sure the online crime prevention strategy is being fully utilized, as well as ensuring the protection of the Filipino Internet users, who are the victims of online cybercrime,” said Dela Rosa, PNP director general.
