Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) is an initiative of the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities forum (APPA) held every year to promote awareness of privacy issues and the importance of the protection of personal information.
Privacy Awareness Week 2014 was held from 4 to 10 May.
This year the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) held 3 sell-out events: a business breakfast, a compliance and complaint handling workshop and a credit reporting webinar. The OAIC also participated in a number of events in 4 cities across the week, released 24 new publications and had over 210 PAW partners.
We hope to see you returning for Privacy Awareness Week in 2015.
For the full wrap of events, tips and advice over the week, please see our media release.
Privacy is about the protection of an individual’s personal information. It is also about the responsibilities of businesses and the Government when handling that information. We can all do more to spread the message.
