Digital solutions provider ePLDT Inc. recently became the only Philippine member of the Forum of Incident Response and SecurityTeams (FIRST), a global leader against cyber attacks.
ePLDT Cyber Security became a certified FIRST member this February after a rigorous process of application, including sponsorship from existing members, site visits to ePLDT’s Security Operations Center (SOC) for the review of its cyber threat response capabilities, and board approval.
The membership improves ePLDT’s capabilities to respond to cyberattacks and enables it to share knowledge among other organizations around the world.
“We are proud to become the first and only organization in the Philippines to be part of such a prestigious global organization,” remarked Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO.
“By expanding our cyber security capabilities and network, we are better able to safeguard organizations against today’s increasing cyber threats.”
ePLDT delivers services and solutions that allow local businesses to redefine their cyber defenses.
With its official affiliation with FIRST, ePLDT stays up-to-date with the latest cyber security news and use cases affecting enterprises—enabling them to prepare customers for possible incidents.
“It scales up our expertise and capabilities in Cyber Security,” stressed Angel Redoble, First Vice President & Chief Information Security Officer of ePLDT Group.
