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.

“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.
