In a press briefing on Tuesday, June 13, DICT secretary Rodolfo Salalima said the move is aimed at establishing a single portal within the agency where citizens can have online access to services of various government departments.

?People need no longer go from place to place just to contact all these departments. Through our portal, one stop shop portal, pwede na ang tao maski sa probinsya, use our portal to transact, say for example, with the NBI, the BIR and other government agencies,” Salalima said.

With regard to cybersecurity, Salalima said the DICT has organized the Cybersecurity Investigation and Coordinating Center, which he chairs. — PIA
