No one really knows what’s behind it, but it proved that data is almost more valuable than money these days.
Hacking and leaking information has now increased into issues as state secrets, government intelligence and political gain as part of the â€œhacktivismâ€ movement.
Threats to public safety are discovered as hackers even broke into airplane in-flight systemsand control system of a US dam.
A US Attorney General said, “These attacks were relentless, and widespread, that threatened our economic wellbeing and our ability to compete fairly in the global marketplace, which directly linked to our national security.”
Accordingly, the United States is in no shape to solve this problem, no country solves a security issue on its own.
Experts says, â€œThe US and other cyber-spying governments use their resources to exploit cracks in their rivals’ systems rather than finding and patching their own vulnerabilities.â€ â€œAll the governments and private sectors around the world should have invested money and cooperated on cyber-security that actually provide as a public good.â€
The Philippines is no exception to Cyber-crime, whether in government, political, financial and private issues. With the ever-evolving technological capacity of the hacking world, the public is forced to defend themselves for further attacks to come.

IMO secretary generalKitack Lim said: â€œThe annual Day of the Seafarer campaign on 25 June is so important to improve the general public’s awareness of shipping and also raise the profile among key influencers and policymakers outside of our regular sector. (By Edgar Allan J. Tac-an)
