President Mallari identifies authority to release TSU data
In compliance with Republic Act 10173, or the Data Privacy Act, Tarlac State University President Myrna Q. Mallari has ordered that the release by TSU of “specified data or information which are not intended (for) full public disclosure” should be approved by the Data Protection Officer.
These data “must be protected from unauthorized access, use, publication, or dissemination,” she said in a memorandum order dated September 7.
She said that “data infringement” should be prevented because it “may cause damage, injury or (disadvantage) to the university.”
Earlier, on July 10, the president appointed Dr. Grace Ann C. Hasegawa as overall data protection officer.
Dr. Cynthia G. Quiambao of the College of Education and Mr. Winston F. Abalos of the College of Business Administration were also designated data protection officers.
TSU data obtained without authorization from university data protection officers “will be considered unauthorized or coming from an illegal source,” the president said. [Office of Public Affairs and Information]
