The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) has bagged two out of four major awards in the recently-concluded 2022 Privacy Awareness Week organised by the National Privacy Commission (NPC).

PAGCOR bested ten other nominees for the Privacy Management Programme Award (Government Sector), while Data Privacy Officer Atty. Maria Concepcion Gloria-Rubio was named Data Protection Officer of the Year during the awarding ceremony held at Philippine International Convention Centre (PICC) on May 26, 2022.

The state-run gaming firm’s Information Technology Department (ITD) Senior Manager Ross Sherwin De Claro, meanwhile, was one of the finalists for the Privacy Advocate of the Year Award.

PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Andrea Domingo, in her virtual address, noted that while the state-run gaming firm has always been a staunch partner of the government in nation building, it diligently strives hard to comply with all regulations and laws.

“The Data Privacy Act of 2012 is no exemption. We recognize the challenges and obligations to respect the fundamental human right to privacy of all our customers while ensuring free flow of information to promote innovation and growth,” she said.

Domingo furthered said that in line with its support to the Data Privacy Act, PAGCOR established its own Data Privacy Section under the Information Technology Department; designated Compliance Officers for different departments and Casino Filipino branches nationwide; developed a Data Privacy Manual as basis of its data privacy governance; and created a Privacy Management Programme to align its resources.

“The pandemic did not stop us from building a culture of privacy within our organization. We were successful in implementing the Online Data Privacy Awareness Program for our officers and employees, recognizing them for their invaluable support in keeping safe our customers’ personal data and trust,” she added.

ITD Assistant Vice President Hector Melencio, who received the award on behalf of PAGCOR, expressed his gratitude to the NPC for recognising the corporation’s efforts in promoting data privacy.

“On behalf of our Chairman, Ms. Andrea Domingo, we would like to thank the NPC for giving this award to us in recognition for all our efforts on data privacy. We are also doing this in relation to Anti-Money Laundering,” he said.

BWF, together with major sponsor M88 Mansion, will be holding the TotalEnergies BWF World Championships 2022 in Japan on August 22-28.

This is the first time the east Asian country will host the competition, and the fifth Asian nation to do so. Matches will be played at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.

Over 300 competitors from more than 40 countries will slug it out to emerge as the best in five events, with the host and last year’s overall winner taking the lead.

Reigning champions for each category are: Loh Kean Yew of Singapore (men’s singles), Yamaguchi Akane of Japan (women’s singles), Hoki Takurō and Kobayashi Yūgo of Japan (men’s doubles), Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan of China (women’s doubles), as well as Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Sapsiree Taerattanachai of Thailand (mixed doubles).

The draw was held on August 10 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, producing interesting brackets.

Men’s singles world number one Viktor Axelsen is set on a collision course with fellow Dane Rasmus Gemke in the quarter-finals, while Indonesians Jonatan Christie and Anthony Ginting are also both on the top half of the bracket and could possibly meet in the semis.

Over in women’s singles, top seed Yamaguchi and 14th-ranked Takahashi Sayaka can tentatively clash on the third round, with An Se-young of South Korea and PV Sindhu of India as probable semi-final round opponents.

Hoki and Kobayashi journey back to the top have them starting in the bottom half of the bracket, with the more thrilling matchups found in the upper half of the draw. Chen and Jia also averted some early tough challenges in their section.

Finally, Puavaranukroh and Taerattanachai could feasibly contend against two Japanese pairs en route to the final.

The BWF World Championships follow the single elimination knockout format.

As part of the partnership between M88 Mansion and BWF, updates and highlights will be provided on the M88 Mansion-BWF website and social media accounts before, during, and after the event. A top BWF player will also be featured and interviewed.

First organized in 1977, the tourney has been held annually, except for Summer Olympic years, since 2005. It was last staged in 2021 in Huelva, Spain.
