Personal data can be misused and repurposed in the lead-up to the national elections next year. The National Privacy Commission earlier flagged an election-related survey website that was collecting excessive data.

Companies and government institutions should be accountable, compliant, and ethical in using personal data, in accordance with the Data Privacy Law.

“Practice privacy by design. We do that by taking full cognizance of the potential risks that processing involves, and try to mitigate and address these risks,” said National Privacy Commissioner Raymund E. Liboro, in a conversation on data privacy with BusinessWorld reporter Jenina P. Ibañez.
