Hamilo Coast and WWF: Partners in Eco-Tourism and Sustainability


Hamilo Coast, the premier beach resort town in Nasugbu, Batangas, may be the weekend haven of the country’s affluent set, yet it is on track as a thriving model of sustainable eco-tourism practices. 

Touting 5,800 hectares of prime seaside development, Hamilo Coast is a project of SM Prime’s Costa Del Hamilo, Inc. (CDHI), which carefully integrates residential, resort, leisure, commercial, and institutional land uses in the sprawling estate. But beyond its vast scope and stunning vistas, Hamilo Coast embraces sustainable tourism at the core of its philosophy and shows how beautiful beachfront homes can harmonize with nature and the environment.

2022 marks Hamilo Coast’s 15th year of productive partnership with the conservation group World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines (WWF). Hamilo Coast and WWF have been working together on key areas for sustainability—coastal resource management, ridge-to-reef management, solid waste management, mangrove reforestation, the use of renewable energy sources, and environmental awareness.

This long-standing collaboration with WWF signifies Hamilo Coast’s determination to pursue eco-tourism and sustainability while upholding international standards for leisure property development. 

Ms. Imee G. Francisco, Vice President and Head of CDHI Projects and Operations, takes pride in the partnership’s objectives. “More than building and maintaining a beautiful community, we seek to create and sustain a world that future generations can enjoy. To help serve this end, CDHI continues to develop Hamilo Coast without compromising the quality of wildlife living around it.” 


This year, Hamilo Coast and WWF will focus on addressing the major components on waste management, which include assessment of solid waste, water and wastewater management practices, formulation of environmental management plan, and the promotion of food shed farming systems. Apart from these, Hamilo Coast and WWF will continuously work on programs that will help conserve, protect, and nurture the environment.

For one, Hamilo Coast and WWF’s Ridge to Reef program declared three of Hamilo Coast’s 13 coves–Pico de Loro, Etayo, and Santelmo–as Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). These are coastal zones where human activities are strictly regulated to ensure their long-term conservation. Declaring more MPAs would also mean expanding Hamilo Coast’s scope in safeguarding more marine ecosystem and resources. 

Hamilo Coast also continues to implement a mangrove reforestation program in its 24-hectare mangrove belt—one of the largest in Nasugbu. Here, Hamilo has planted 50,000 propagules hand-in-hand with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines.

Mangroves are the first line of defense for coastal communities, stabilizing shorelines by averting erosion and providing natural barriers to storm surges, flooding, and hurricanes. As an effective carbon storage, mangroves absorb six times more carbon than mature tropical forests, making it all the more vital in slowing down the effects of climate change. 

Finally, Hamilo Coast and WWF will further push for environmental awareness by celebrating occasions that show respect for biodiversity. One is the annually held Earth Hour, during which time people are urged to shut down electricity to make a substantial difference in energy consumption. Individuals, organizations, and establishments also come together on Coral Triangle Day to shed light on ocean conservation and the ways we can protect and preserve the world’s epicenter of marine biodiversity. 

Likewise, the development boasts the largest volunteer effort for the ocean’s health, made possible with the International Coastal Cleanup, where people gather on the Pico and Santelmo beaches to collect trash and record information on the collected debris. 

For all these sustained efforts, WWF has awarded Hamilo Coast with the Longest Sustainability Partner Award, recognizing the development’s commitment to sustainable tourism and its positive impact on the Philippine tourism industry.

Francisco affirms, “CDHI is proud of how far we have come at Hamilo Coast with the help of WWF. This inspires us to do even more, in the hopes that our efforts will make it possible for future generations to witness the beauty of nature as we see it today.” 


Hamilo Coast is a master-planned seaside residential community in Nasugbu, Batangas. Developed and managed by Costa del Hamilo, Inc., a subsidiary of SM Prime. It is approximately 90 minutes from Manila via Cavitex and the Ternate-Nasugbu Road. For inquiries, call (632) 7-945-8000 or visit

Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 Helps Customers Better Address Cybersecurity Threats Through New Managed Detection and Response Service


PHILIPPINES—The need for managed detection and response (MDR) is soaring as attack surfaces grow, cloud usage skyrockets, and the cybersecurity skills gap widens. Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, today introduced Unit 42 Managed Detection and Response (Unit 42 MDR) to address this need with a new service that can offer continuous 24/7 threat detection, investigation and response. This offering brings together Palo Alto Networks' acclaimed Cortex XDR® with Unit 42’s industry-leading threat intelligence which includes insights from incident response cases. Because Unit 42 MDR is built on Cortex XDR, it is optimized to not just prioritize alerts, but also to massively reduce the number of alerts customers receive. This helps customers to detect more suspicious activity than they would have otherwise.

Unit 42 MDR utilizes Cortex XDR’s machine learning and flexible response capability to find hidden threats like insider abuse, credential attacks, and malware. According to Palo Alto Networks’ 2022 Unit 42 Ransomware Threat Report, Philippine organizations in certain industries are attacked by a fast-growing malware called BlackCat Ransomware, a novel attack that operates in a ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) business model. Target sectors are construction and engineering, retail, transportation, commercial services, insurance, machinery, professional services, telecommunications, auto components, and pharmaceuticals.


"As cyberattacks continue to rise, many organizations are being asked to handle advanced threats with limited resources and without the right expertise. This will not lead to good results," said Wendi Whitmore, senior vice president, Palo Alto Networks Unit 42. "Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 brings a unique combination of innovative cybersecurity technologies and a world-class threat intelligence team which allows us to provide customers with rapid detection and response to critical cyber threats.”


The new Unit 42 MDR service offers customers cybersecurity experts to help identify and respond to security alerts and potential threats in real-time, enabling businesses to focus security operations (SecOps) personnel on other organizational security priorities. The service provides organizations with monitoring, threat hunting, and response/remediation capabilities including: 

  • Continuous Monitoring & Response: Security experts monitor alerts, events, and indicators 24x7x365. The Unit 42 MDR team uses a mix of proprietary processes, infrastructure and enrichment to accelerate detection, response, and threat hunting to help quickly stop malicious activity most likely to impact your organization.

  • Proactive Threat Hunting: World-class threat hunters search environments for complex attacks using deep knowledge of XDR data sources and the latest threat intelligence from Palo Alto Networks. This helps organizations stay ahead of emerging attack campaigns, malware and vulnerabilities.

  • Security Posture Optimization: Experts provide periodic health checks of an organization’s posture and detailed recommendations on policy changes to help facilitate addressing risks before they become issues.


"Cyberattacks are emerging and evolving faster than ever," said Tom Osteen, CIO, Enloe Medical Center. "Intervening and addressing threats at the earliest stage is crucial. With Unit 42 MDR we have confidence that we can quickly identify and stop malicious activity to help keep our organization safe and secure."


In a recent report, IDC said, “It is not a surprise to state that organizations continue to struggle with persistent security talent shortages and the rising costs to retain these scarce security resources. Security teams with already limited resources are overwhelmed by the heavy workload and responsibility.” The report also stated, “Organizations are analyzing their current risks and accelerating their security services investments to ease pressure on their teams and strengthen their overall security posture to meet the growing cyber threats.”*


About Cortex XDR:

Cortex XDR is the world's first detection and response solution that natively integrates network, endpoint and cloud data to stop sophisticated attacks. It is designed to stop attacks with the power of AI and comprehensive data.


XDR is critical to effective security. The latest Palo Alto Networks 2022 Unit 42 Incident Response Report highlights that when a breach occurs 44 percent of the cases involved a business that did not have or did not fully deploy an endpoint detection and response or XDR security solution.  

Options for Cortex XDR Management:

Customers can choose to manage XDR in a number of ways. In addition to Unit 42 MDR, customers can use their own team to manage XDR or choose an XMDR Partner. Partners achieve Cortex XMDR Specialization by completing both technical and sales enablement and specialization examinations. Palo Alto Networks growing XMDR ecosystem serves thousands of customers through partners across the world who use their own particular expertise together with Cortex XDR. 

About Unit 42 & Unit 42 Incident Response Services

Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 brings together world-renowned threat researchers, elite incident responders and expert security consultants to create an intelligence-driven, response-ready organization that's passionate about helping proactively manage cyber risk.

Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 has an experienced team of security consultants with backgrounds in public and private sectors who have handled some of the largest cyberattacks in history. They manage complex cyber risks and respond to advanced threats, including nation-state attacks, advanced persistent threats, or APTs, and complex ransomware investigations. Unit 42 incident response experts are available 24/7 to help clients understand the nature of the attack and then quickly contain, remediate and eradicate it. They utilize a proven methodology and battle-tested tools developed from real-world experiences investigating thousands of incidents.
