Official statement released; Phil-Data assures clients no compromise sensitive information amidst investigation

Phil-Data Business Systems, a Philippine IT company, was hacked days after PhilHealth became a victim of ransomware. Members of ALPHV claimed that the group gained access to the company’s network and stole critical data, including client information, sensitive data, and business-critical information.

Hackers have threatened to release the stolen data to the public through their website if Phil-Data does not agree to protect its customers’ data within 48 hours. “Protect” means negotiate and pay the cybercriminals.

The hackers have also threatened to attack Phil-Data’s clients and use their personal information in criminal activities. Phil-Data Business Systems serves a wide range of clients, from small and medium-sized businesses to large enterprises. Their clients come from a variety of industries, including Banking and Finance, Manufacturing, Telecommunications, Business process outsourcing (BPO), Pharmaceutical, Transportation, Educational institutions, Retail, and  Utilities.

It is still unclear how the hackers were able to gain access to Phil-Data’s network, but experts say that it is likely that the company had vulnerabilities in its network security that the hackers were able to exploit.

This hack is a reminder of the importance of cyber security for businesses of all sizes. Businesses need to take steps to protect their networks and data from cyber attacks, such as implementing strong security measures and regularly updating their software.

Phil-Data issued an official statement about the recent hack on September 25, 2023. In the statement, Phil-Data confirmed that the hack did occur, but based on the company’s investigation, no customer information was compromised. However, the statement did not specify what type of data was stolen or how many people were affected.

Phil-Data’s statement about the recent hack assures its clients that no customer information has been compromised.


Phil-Data also said it is working with relevant government agencies to investigate the hack and has taken steps to secure its systems and prevent future attacks. The statement also assured the public that Phil-Data systems are secure and the company is committed to strengthening its systems.
