Republic Act No. 10844, otherwise known as the “Department of Information and Communications Technology Act of 2015”, stipulates that DICT is mandated to ensure the security of Critical Information Infrastructure (CII), including information assets of the government, individuals, and businesses. DICT shall provide oversight over agencies governing and regulating the ICT sector and ensure consumer protection and welfare, data privacy and security, foster competition and the growth of ICT sector.

In line with this, the National Cybersecurity Plan (NCSP) 2022 was unveiled and published last May of 2017, and through this the DICT Memorandum Circulars (MCs) for the Implementation Plan have also been published in September 2017. In accordance to the NCSP, the MCs require the conduct of Security and Protection Assessment which will serve as an official reference for all CIIs.
