Ping sa DND: Pumasok na kayo sa cyber-world

Pinabibilisan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa Department of National Defense (DND) ang pagbuo ng modernong kakayahan at kasanayan sa pagbabantay at pagtatanggol sa bansa laban sa mga pagtatangka buhat sa mga masasamang elemento.

Sa pagdinig ng Finance Subcommittee ng Senado na pinamunuan ni Lacson sa panukalang badyet ng DND para sa susunod na taon, personal na sinabihan ng mambabatas si DND Secretary Delfin Lorenzana na kailangan nang magkaroon ng matibay na pundasyon ang ahensiya sa usapin ng cyber- and technological capabilities.

Ayon kay Lacson, ang kasalukuyang panahon ay mabilis na umuusad patungo sa pagiging ganap na cybertechnology-capable kung kaya’t dapat makasabay ang DND bilang pangunahing sangay-tanggulan ng bansa.

Lacson to DND: Pursue cyber, tech capabilities in age of modern warfare

In this age of biotechnology and artificial intelligence, the Philippines should be developing its cyber- and technological capabilities to ward off threats on those fronts.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this on Tuesday as he exhorted the Department of National Defense to exhaust all means to pursue this course of action.

“We are in an age of biotechnology and artificial intelligence. We should be looking at control of the airwaves and cyberspace,” Lacson said at the hearing for the DND’s 2019 budget at the Senate.

Lacson to PDEA, DDB: Refocus your efforts vs ‘big fish’

With law enforcers proving themselves capable of going after street peddlers, it is high time for the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and Dangerous Drugs Board to go after the so-called big fish.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this on Tuesday as he cited the need for stricter coordination at the upper levels against the entry of illegal drugs into the country.

“You have to refocus because the police are now capable of going after street peddlers. You have to concentrate on those at the higher levels,” he said at the Senate hearing on the budgets of the two agencies for 2019.

Lacson Backs P390-million DND ‘Love of Country Builders’ Program

Instead of being viewed as “pathetic dependents,” Filipino war veterans may soon have a better chance of inspiring young Filipinos to love their country.

This is the idea behind the Department of National Defense’s “Love of Country Builders” program, which Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is supporting.

“From one veteran to another although we don’t look like (veterans yet), approved, Sir, as far as the committee is concerned,” Lacson told DND Undersecretary and Philippine Veterans Affairs Office administrator Ernesto Carolina at a budget hearing for the DND.
