He gave an inspirational message and congratulated the PNP-ACG on their fourth anniversary and their successful efforts to thwart the cybercriminals.

He also officiated ribbon cutting of the exhibit area to officially open it during the summit.
During the first day of the summit, the talks are more about what the laws that were made against cybercrime and the proper authorities that have the jurisdiction in investigating and prosecuting cybercriminals. There is also a discussion about Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) and how could our country use this to prosecute cybercriminals outside our country. The rise of the cybercrime incidents in the world are alarming that it has toppled the drug-related crimes on the top spot of having the most number of cases.
The topics during the second day are more on how you can personally protect yourself, your family and your company from possible cyber attacks. The topics are really great and some are eye-opener that simple steps and things can help you secure your account.
