Malacañang Palace appointed John Henry Du Naga to a three-year term as the new commissioner of the National Privacy Commission effective Dec. 14.
Naga replaced Raymund Enriquez Liboro.
“I thank President Rodrigo Duterte for appointing Atty. John Henry Du Naga as the new privacy commissioner. With Atty. Naga’s appointment, I know that I am passing the baton to capable hands. I have great confidence that the new Privacy Commissioner will further cement the National Privacy Commission as a body committed to advancing data privacy and protection,” Liboro said.
Appointed as the country’s first Privacy Commissioner in March 2016 and having finished two consecutive terms, Liboro fast-tracked data protection policy development in the country by issuing the Data Privacy Act’s implementing rules and regulations and essential policy circulars and advisories.
Liboro put the country on the global scene by earning the Philippines a voting seat on the exclusive 5-member executive committee of the Global Privacy Assembly in 2018.
