“ Securing the Nation’s Digital Transformation to eCommerse “

Guest of Honor, PNP Director General Ronald M. Dela Rosa . . .

The Philippines, like any other country around the world, is increasingly adopting Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in its economic, government and social activities.

The dependence on ICT however, makes us vulnerable to different forms of security threats such as malwares, botnets, denial of service attacks, phishing and other types of identity theft, computer-related forgery and fraud, child pornography, copyright infringements and cyber terrorism.

In response to the mounting threats on the country’s cyber space and critical infrastructures, the country needs to strengthen its legal framework, international cooperation, public and private partnership, advocacy and public awareness.

Director of ACG PSSupt. Marni C. Marcos, Jr. 

The Philippine National Police (PNP) through its current Chief, PNP  and in line with the PNP’s strategic thrust, saw a need to enhance the organization’s capabilities and capacities in addressing cybercrime that paved the way for the creation of the PNP Anti Cybercrime Group (ACG).

The PNP ACG started its humble beginnings when the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) formed in 2003 under the Anti-Transnational Crime Division (ATCD) the Cybercrime Section where it started without computers, computer forensic equipment, trained cyber investigator, digital forensic examiner or cyber forensic laboratory.

In order for the PNP to establish a credible cybercrime unit within CIDG, it conducted consultations and networking with various international law enforcement agencies, ICT industries, the academes and other stakeholders.

ISOG Speaker Manuel Joey Regala, set things on how they can be of service to the PNP ACG, it’s a civilian organization that helps us on how to deal with fraud. 

In line with the program of the Task Force for the Security of Critical Infrastructures (TFSCI) under the Office of the President of the Philippines, the Government Computer Security Incident Response Team (GCSIRT) was launched on August 5, 2004. GCSIRT through the Anti-Transnational Crime Division of CIDG, became the focal point for reporting all internet-related security breaches and coordinated support systems to respond to such threats across all government agencies.

Moreover, a cyber training laboratory was established on December 9, 2011 to conduct specialized technical training to CIDG police personnel.

Finally, on February 27, 2013 the PNP-Anti Cybercrime Group with official acronym “PNP ACG”, was activated as a National Operational Support Unit primarily responsible for the implementation of pertinent Philippine laws on cybercrimes and advocating the anti-cybercrime campaign of the PNP.

This summit created not just to armed the PNP ACG rather to give information to all of us, we are in a era of fast technology and technology that we embrace is also putting us in a situation that is negative reaction in our lifestyle, Anti Cybercrime Summit 2017 teaches us more information on what to do if this kind of incident will happen.

About Directories Philippines Corporation

Directories Philippines Corporation (DPC) was incorporated on June 20, 1989 to assume the business of the Philippine Branch of GTE Directories of the United States. Since then, DPC has emerged as the dominant market leader in the directories advertising industry in Metro Manila and the other major urban centers across the country. It is also the official seller of Yellow Pages advertisements, a tried and tested vehicle for enterprises to reach ready buyers, in the Philippines.

Near the turn of the century, DPC took the Yellow Pages (YP) online and has since entered the mobile realm as well. Beyond being a multi-platform local search engine and a seller of ad space, the company has evolved into a marketing solutions company with a whole suite of value-added services—from call center assistance to mobile apps—to help advertisers, particularly small and medium enterprises (SMEs), reach and serve more customers.

Today, DPC publishes more than two million phone books which are distributed in Top 1000 corporations, SMEs, hotels, hospitals, schools, government offices, residential villages and condominiums. Around 8.4 million ready buyers, including corporate purchasing departments, nationwide—2.7 million of them in Metro Manila—look up the print Yellow Pages at least once a month for reliable suppliers of products and services.

In 2016, DPC introduced the Digital eBook, an electronically searchable version of the Metro Manila print YP, to extend the reach and utility of this precious resource among ready buyers.

The online YP, http://www.yellow-pages.ph, gets 1.5 million page views from more than 500,000 ready buyers every month. Optimized for mobile devices, it can be accessed via smartphones and tablets. The Yellow Pages PH App can be downloaded via the Google Play Store and Apple iTunes.

About Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company

PLDT is the leading telecommunications and digital services provider in the Philippines. Through its principal business groups – fixed line, wireless and others – PLDT offers a wide range of telecommunications and digital services across the Philippines’ most extensive fiber optic backbone, and fixed line and cellular networks.

PLDT is listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE:TEL) and its American Depositary Shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:PHI). PLDT has one of the largest market capitalizations among Philippine­listed companies.

When PLDT was incorporated and given the franchise to establish and operate telephone services in the country on November 28, 1928, a typhoon had just ravaged Eastern Visayas, Bicol Peninsula, and Samar. The ability to communicate amongst loved ones and across the country became crucial. Sadly, phone networks then were like disconnected intercom systems and you could only call people within your own small city. Filipinos were disconnected from neighboring towns, disconnected from friends in the other island and, needless to say, disconnected from the rest of the world. It was under this scenario that the law was signed giving birth to PLDT.

What the new law hoped to achieve was to interconnect these "intercom" systems into a seamless nationwide network that would facilitate communication and delivery of services to the people, as well as spur economic development in the countryside.

In 1968, PLDT became a Filipino-controlled corporation when Ramon Cojuangco and his group of Filipino industrialists and businessmen bought the controlling stake of GTE of New York. This paved the way for massive investments and technological innovations in areas like satellite communications, direct distance dialing, cellular telephony and fiber optics.

In November 1998, Hong Kong-based First Pacific Co. Ltd. acquired a 17.5-percent controlling stake in PLDT. The following year, PLDT forged a strategic partnership with NTT Communications Corp (NTTCom), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp. of Japan, the world’s leading telecommunications company in terms of revenues. Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), the country’s largest mobile phone operator, was also acquired by PLDT.

Today, PLDT leads the wireless race, dominates the landline domain, operates the premier satellite company, and has raced to the No. 1 position in the Internet business. Amid all the technological changes, PLDT has remained committed to serving the nation and providing communications solutions to Filipinos.

Eduard Folayang’s newborn baby adds inspiration to upcoming title defenseFilipino fighter Eduard “Landslide” Folayang feels extra motivated in his first defense of his ONE Lightweight World Championship title next month as he and his wife have welcomed a bouncing baby girl to their family.


His spouse Genevieve gave birth to their first-born child on an early Monday morning, 13 March at the Pines City Doctor’s Hospital in Baguio City. The couple tied the knot in April 2015, with Folayang describing his wife as his lifetime coach.

Folayang named his daughter Yeshuareigns, which means “Jesus reigns.” The 33-year-old mixed martial artist is a devoted born-again Christian and is also known for the public expression of his faith.

As a first-time father, Folayang was at a loss for words when he first saw and held his newborn child.

Quite similar to his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career, Folayang admitted that raising his daughter properly will pose a challenge.


“This is a huge blessing for our family. It felt like I won another world title in mixed martial arts. I am so happy. This is one of the most momentous moments in my life. I hope and pray that I can be a good role model to my daughter. I will be the best father that I can be,” he said.

With over a month to go before he steps inside the ONE Championship again, Folayang stressed that his daughter will be his driving force to win.

“I can truly say that I am super motivated for my upcoming fight in April. My newborn daughter gives me the much-needed inspiration with the challenge that is ahead of me,” he stated.

Folayang will defend his ONE Lightweight World Championship belt against Malaysian-Kiwi sensation Ev “E.T.” Ting in the main event of ONE: KINGS OF DESTINY, which takes place at the 20,000-seater SM Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines on 21 April.

“I know how exceptional Ev Ting’s talent is. I am in a tough preparation for my first title defense. My main advantage over him is my experience as a fighter, especially in the lightweight division. We all know that Ev Ting came from the featherweight division, so I’m more used to fighting in this division,” Folayang said about his marquee match-up with Ting.


Knowing that Ting is driven to make history as the first Malaysian combatant to win a world title in MMA, Folayang vows to do everything in his power to make sure that he keeps the coveted lightweight strap around his waist.

“Ev Ting is an amazing competitor and has obviously earned the opportunity to challenge for the title. He is the complete package, with good striking and a really good ground game. I need to be at my absolute best to make sure I can defend the belt successfully,” he ended.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a retro style, mid-size SUV with styling and off road performance reminiscent of the original Toyota Land Cruiser (FJ40). The “FJ” in the Toyota FJ Cruiser’s name refers to the chassis specification code of the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser. The classic Land Cruiser was produced worldwide from 1960 until 1984.  And like the old FJ40, the Toyota FJ Cruiser has superior off-road capabilities.

The production of the FJ Cruiser has been discontinued in 2014 and only a handful is available in showrooms. If you want one, now is the time to get it. However, excitement and capability live on with adventure-ready Toyota vehicles.

One Bangkok 2017 Lee Press-2.jpg

11 March 2017 – Bangkok, Thailand: The largest sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), made a triumphant return to the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand for another exciting evening of world-class MMA action at ONE: WARRIOR KINGDOM. Fans were treated to an amazing showcase of courage and skill, delivered by the absolute best in local and international MMA talent. In the main event, Angela “Unstoppable” Lee retained her ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship with a masterful display of striking, stopping previously unbeaten Jenny Huang within three rounds.

In the main event of ONE: WARRIOR KINGDOM, reigning and defending ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela “Unstoppable” Lee of Singapore retained her title with a dominant striking performance, unveiling a new dimension to her evolving skillset by putting together dynamic combinations to stun her opponent Jenny Huang of Chinese Taipei. Lee overwhelmed Huang from the beginning of the bout, peppering her with a volley of punches, elbows and knees. Huang tried her best to weather the storm but Lee kept coming, stalking Huang to no end. By the middle of the third round, the champion had the challenger pinned down on the mat as Lee unleashed ground-and-pound to earn the stoppage.

Angela Lee, ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion, stated: “Well I have had some time to work (on the striking) because I haven’t fought in a while, so it feels really great. It feels like I’m back home here in the ONE Championship cage. It feels amazing, I cannot describe what I’m feeling right now. Thank you guys for coming out. I have to say thank you to my opponent Jenny [Huang] for being such a courageous warrior. She brought out the best in me.”

In the co-main event, local hero Shannon “OneShin” Wiratchai sent a message to the lightweight division, asking for a shot at the ONE Lightweight World Championship belt after easily taking care of debuting opponent Richard Corminal of the Philippines. Wiratchai, one of the most dynamic strikers in the promotion, put his world-class boxing skills on full display, staggering Corminal with punishing lefts and rights against the cage fence. The end came fittingly as Wiratchai connected on a right hook that turned the lights out on Corminal.

Top strawweight contender Joshua Pacio of the Philippines and former ONE Strawweight World Champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke of Thailand fought to near exhaustion, pushing each other to the limit over the course of an intense three round bout. Dejdamrong stalked Pacio all throughout the ONE Championship cage while his younger opponent looked to take matters to the ground. Once on the mat, Pacio dominated Dejdamrong, keeping the Thai fighter on the canvas with high-level wrestling. Action continued in the second round as Pacio continued to batter Dejdamrong, even scoring on an emphatic slam. In the third round however, Dejdamrong came to life and started to pressure Pacio with his world-class Muay Thai combinations. Both fighters were able to make it to the final bell with Pacio being awarded a close split decision for his efforts.

In one of the most exciting matchups of the evening, Yodsanan Sityodtong of Thailand and Ramon Gonzales of the Philippines put on a spectacular showcase of aggression to the roar of a packed crowd. Sityodtong, a former boxing world champion nicknamed “Little Tyson”, is known for his very powerful fists. Gonzales used takedowns to stay away from Sityodtong’s power, but spent a lot of energy trying to pursue a guillotine choke that Sityodtong was able to escape from. In the middle of the second round, the two fighters engaged in a skirmish at the center of the cage which left Gonzales unable to continue. Sityodtong earned the submission via verbal tapout after Gonzales signalled to referee Yuji Shimada.

Thai-Japanese female atomweight prospect Rika “Tinydoll” Ishige brought her hometown crowd up to their feet with a spectacular performance, besting Malaysian fighter Audreylaura “Ice Comet” Boniface to win by technical knockout before the end of the first round. The two women wasted absolutely no time at all, going to battle at the center of the cage with a scintillating striking exchange at the sound of the first bell. Once the fight hit the ground however, Ishige’s grappling skills took the spotlight as she stifled Boniface with a series of submission attempts. In the end, Ishige wound up in full mount and finished the fight with ground-and-pound.

Sagetdao Petpayathai of Evolve MMA was successful in his ONE Championship promotional debut, defeating game challenger Kelvin Ong of Malaysia. The local Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai legend lit up Ong with his powerful striking, tagging the Malaysian with lightning quick kicks and thudding punch combinations. After a brief feeling out period, Petpayathai opened up his hands and drove Ong against the cage fence where he unleashed the fight-ending sequence to clinch the victory by technical knockout.

Featherweight fighters Ma Jia Wen of Tianjin, China, and Yohan Mulia Legowo of Solo, Indonesia, went head-to-head with intense striking tirades as well as high-level wrestling and grappling. Known for his fast and furious starts, Ma went straight at Legowo and opened up with a fierce punching combination, punctuated by a high kick that landed right on Legowo’s temple. In the second round, Ma turned up the aggression once again and began to tee off on Legowo, connecting on a devastating stream of punches and elbows to force the stoppage.

In the second preliminary bout of the card, Thai wrestling champion Kritsada “Dream Man” Kongsrichai of Thailand delivered a sensational performance, forcing opponent Adrian Matheis of Indonesia to succumb to strikes in the very first round. The two strawweights went on the attack as soon as the bout began and although it was Matheis who landed the more telling blows, it was Kongsrichai who put his world-class wrestling chops on display. The end came when Kongsrichai wound up on top and homed in a series of elbows to force the referee stoppage.

ONE: WARRIOR KINGDOM got off to a great start when feisty strawweight contenders Rabin Catalan of the Philippines and Pongsiri Mitsatit of Thailand locked horns to the delight of the capacity crowd. After a few brief exchanges both on the feet and on the ground, local fighter Mitsatit was able to deliver a series of knees to Catalan’s midsection which proved too much for the Filipino to overcome, earning him a thrilling technical knockout victory in the very first round.
