AS a response to the increasing number of cybercrimes monitored and reported by netizens, the Philippine National Police (PNP) strengthens its cybercrime-fighting capabilities with Project E-ACCESS.
Project E-ACCESS (Enhanced Anti-Cybercrime Campaign, Education, Safety and Security) by the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group (ACG), is its latest and advanced online verification platform.
It was launched this Thursday in Camp Crame in Quezon City, which also marks PNP Chief Guillermo Eleazar’s 60th day in office as the country’s top cop.
Project: E-ACCESS through Cyber “Web” and Cybercrime “Watch” components aim to strengthen the police’s fight against cybercrime by providing an informative and convenient platform for anti-cybercrime prevention awareness.
“Project: E-ACCESS is a web platform for concerned netizens involving an online account such as mobile number, email, website or social media application, which has been (the) subject of a verified complaint or with pending criminal case for cybercrime violations based on PNP ACG data,” Gen. Eleazar said.
According to him, this cybercrime watch initiative will serve as a “Go-to” platform for netizens for anti-cybercrime prevention and awareness contents such as informative video clips, tips on detection and prevention, infographics, cybercrime statistics and other information which shall educate and promote a culture of cyber security and awareness in the country.
“On-going na rin ang process ng pagconsolidate ng mga data sa ating regional offices para mas maging madali ang ating pagmonitor ng mga irereport ng ating mga kababayan,” Gen. Eleazar added.
The E-ACCESS project, he said, is still in line with the PNP’s Intensified Cleanliness Policy program under the Cleanliness in the Community aspect where the objective is to cleanse and suppress illegal drugs, terrorism and criminality, including our campaign against cybercrime through cyberpatrolling.
The launching was also attended by the members of the PNP Command Group and Directorial Staff.
