IBM / Genetec Surveillance System Investigated Over Philippines Human Rights Abuses

By Charles Rollet, Published on Mar 22, 2019

A lengthy investigation into an IBM video surveillance project in the Philippines, raising concerns IBM helped local police conduct a bloody campaign of extrajudicial killings, has been published by The Intercept, a high-profile news publication behind several major scoops on the NSA's surveillance programs.

The investigation centers on IBM directly selling and setting up an Intelligent Operations Center (IOC) for authorities in Davao City, the third-largest city in the Philippines, in 2012. The center is sparking controversy because, at the time, Davao was the site of “hundreds” of extrajudicial killings under the administration of current Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte and his daughter Sara.

On top of IBM's involvement, IPVM found that Davao also used Genetec's VMS, and we have examined Genetec's involvement plus Genetec's response.

ibm genetec philipines human rights abuses

This shows increasing scrutiny of video surveillance from media and activists over its potential for abetting serious human rights abuses, particularly thanks to increasingly sophisticated analytics.

In this post, we examine:

  • Background of Publisher
  • Davao/IBM Surveillance Operations Background
  • Surveillance Operations Details
  • Genetec Involvement
  • Allegations Made In the Article
  • Analytics Scrutiny
  • IBM/Genetec Response
  • Why IPVM is skeptical of IBM's claimed capabilities
  • A Wake-Up Call for Video Surveillance?
