Friday 19 December 2014 | 11:59 AM CET

The cybercrime unit of the Philippine National Police (PNP) has partnered with software company Microsoft.

The Anti-Cybercrime Group was formed in March 2013 in pursuance with the provision of the Cybercrime Prevent Act to serve as the primary group responsible for implementing cybercrime laws and anti-cybercrime campaigns of the PNP and the national government.

It was created to focus on cybercrime-, computer- and other content-related offenses. From 2003 to 2012, the PNP-ACG reported a total of 2,778 cybercrime-related offenses.

With the alliance, Microsoft will be providing readiness programs, knowledge, tools, and necessary technologies to assist in combatting cybercrimes. Microsoft will also work closely with PNP-ACG representatives to discuss current requirements, challenges, skills and equipment.
