It has been awhile since I wrote an update about the lessons and what I learned in EVIDENCE but, these past two weeks have been an educational journey to me. Since I’m not familiar in the subject of analysis, this was a new technique to analyze a certain subject carefully. It was about the Political, Economic, Socio-Cultural, Technological, Environmental, Legal (PESTEL) analysis accompanied by Opportunity & Threat (OT) analysis. This PESTEL – OT made me realize how important to know how to analyze a certain subject. We were asked to analyze the upcoming proposal of a National Cybersecurity plan of 2022. This was exciting to read since it was about the improvement of security here in the Philippines. The plan doesn’t only cover security, it also promotes other improvements in terms of the government and businesses.
After we read the plan, I was a little skeptic if the plan would really be implemented here in the Philippines. I know for a fact that there is a possibility of corruption in the plan since it involves countless expensive pieces of equipment. Abuse of the funds is also a possibility but I decided to put these thoughts to rest and I’ll just wait and see what would happen next. I am glad that something like this would happen here since we are in need of advancing to the standards of other countries.
