Cyber-Crime Prevention Act (Bill No. 2796) Approved By The Senate
The Senate has approved on third and final reading the Cyber-crime Prevention Act of 2012 or Senate Bill No. 2796, which seeks to establish a legal framework for the investigation, apprehension, and prosecution of cyber-criminals. Sen. Edgardo Angara, author of the measure, lauded the Senate for acting quickly on the measure which seeks to establish a legal framework for the investigation, apprehension, and prosecution of cyber-criminals.
“Their approval sends out a clear message that the Philippines is taking decisive steps not only in safeguarding its digital space, but also in ensuring its transition into a full-fledged knowledge-based economy,” Angara said. The measure calls for an initial appropriation of P50 million for its implementation. The bill also seeks to protect children from pornography. Under the measure, the Office of the President (OP) and two other government agencies are also required to create an anti-cybercrime office that would deal with matters on web crimes. These agencies include the Department of Justice (DoJ), and the Department of Science and Technology (DoST)’s Information and Communications Technology Office (DoST-ICTO). Other than that, Angara said the measure aims to ensure that the public has access to adequate Internet security in the face of a rapidly changing technology. He said Internet usage has become more prominent, especially in social networking. 
“A large chunk of human activity nowadays is no longer merely physical — it occurs in the Internet. Crime and harm is thus no longer merely physical — they can occur online as well. There is a need for us to innovate security measures and enact laws that will help protect us in the digital world,” Angara said.
