The Philippine National Police (PNP) reported a significant drop in cybercrime cases for the first half 2024. Compared to the same period in 2023, cybercrime complaints have plunged by 36%.

This positive trend is attributed to increased cybersecurity measures by businesses and government agencies and improved enforcement and awareness campaigns led by the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group (ACG).

However, the report also highlights a rise in cyber-libel cases and photo/video voyeurism. This is likely due to Filipinos’ growing online presence and the ease with which content can be shared.

The PNP remains vigilant in the fight against cybercrime. The agency is committed to further enhancing its capabilities. This includes IT training for police personnel and collaboration with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to provide capacity-building programs.

The PNP is also planning to establish cybercrime desks in every police station before the end of the year to improve accessibility for Filipinos seeking assistance with cybercrime-related issues.
