Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) is an annual event to raise awareness of privacy issues and the importance of protecting personal information.

We run PAW in conjunction with state and territory privacy regulators and the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities forum.

PAW 2023 was held from Monday 1 May to Sunday 7 May, and this year’s theme was ‘Back to Basics’.

The theme and dates for PAW 2024 will be decided later this year.
