Facebook made the rare decision to push back directly at Elizabeth Warren and her criticism of the company, but its attempt to defend itself backfired spectacularly

Philippine Statistics Authority, please read the signs

This is actually why I am overly concerned about the Philippine National ID initiative. Knowing how the government works - budget, personnel, procurement - there is a high chance of citizens’ data will be breached/hacked/exploited externally, or worse, internally (think of one of the gov’t owned and controlled corporations).

If I am not mistaken, the model used by lawmakers is India’s Aadhaar, which does not have a great track record in securing their data as well.

Before embarking on something like a national ID registry, maybe a thorough IT security audit of critical infrastructure needs to be done first. Audit BIR, PhilHealth, LTO, Local Government Units, COMELEC (oops, already breached!), GSIS, SSS, as a start. Ensure that they are standards compliant in securing data at the very least.

w00t! More and more are signing up for “Sign in with Apple”. This is going to be good for all users. Can’t wait for web services to add this. www.manton.org/2019/09/1…
