Does Dito Telecom is safe when it comes to cybersecurity? How can we sure that there will be no security breach using Dito Telecom? How secure does Dito Telecommunity?

The first and foremost when it comes to telecommunications companies is to make sure that they have the most secure platform. DITO Telecommunity taps Fortinet as a primary cyber security provider. It secures the largest enterprise, service provider, and government organizations around the world. Fortinet ranks #1 in the most security appliances shipped worldwide and more than 450,000 customers trust Fortinet to protect their businesses.

The third telco will never compromise the country’s security. In fact, DITO Telecommunity’s Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has the same provisions and commitment to national security as the MOAs signed with PLDT Inc. and Globe Telecom Inc.


For some of us who wonder what are those attacks and how difficult it may be, I list down the top 10 types of most common cyber attacks.

Here are the 10 most common cyber attack types:

  1. Denial-of-service (DoS) and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks
  2. Man-in-the-middle (MitM) attack
  3. Phishing and spear phishing attacks
  4. Drive-by attack
  5. Password attack
  6. SQL injection attack
  7. Cross-site scripting (XSS) attack
  8. Eavesdropping attack
  9. Birthday attack
  10. Malware attack
