Philippines' NBI Calls for Laptop Regulation

cybercrime has tremendously increased in the Philippines affecting many IT PINOYs, to combat this the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) proposed to regulate devices connecting to the web such as laptops and sim cards. so far, at least two senators opposed the idea.

“I can foresee tremendous opposition to this,” said Sen. Edgardo Angara, chairman of the Senate Science and Technology Committee.

Sen. Francis Escudero believes this is but an “overreaction.”

it was also reported that 50% of web connections in the country are wireless, registering these devices would help enforcers to easily trace would-be culprits.

do you think this law would help?
