The Philippine Army capped the two-day Philippine Army (PA) Signal Family Conference with an exhibit that showcased the latest information and communication technology (ICT) trends on November 22, 2022 at the Philippine Army Officers' Clubhouse, Fort Bonifacio, Metro Manila.
Acting Army Chief of Staff and concurrent Army Inspector General Maj. Gen. Jose Eriel M. Niembra, together with Army Signal Regiment (ASR) Commander Col. Alejandro J. Papa, and Philippine Army Assistant Chief of Staff for Command and Control, Communications, and Cyber Systems (G6) Col. Constancio M. Espina II, led the exhibit's ribbon-cutting rites that featured booths from local and foreign partner companies of PA. The exhibit gave the Army’s signal and cyber personnel a glimpse of the latest information and communication technologies that have military applications.
The exhibit highlighted the two-day PA Signal Family Conference 2022 which is geared at providing updates on the Army’s Command and Control Communications, and Cyber Systems (C4S) projects and programs that are anchored on the golden triangle of “people, process and technology.
“Military operations that are carried out in the digital sphere have a significant impact on vital infrastructures and services that could severely affect the whole country,” Commanding General, Philippine Army (CGPA) Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner, Jr., said in a prepared speech. “The Philippine Army’s cybersecurity posture must be strengthened in terms of people, process, and technology. In our current situation where the fight is extended into cyberspace, I cannot further stress the importance of being adept in cyber warfare,” the CGPA added.
