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.

For PAW 2024 (6 May to Sunday 12 May) we asked people, organisations and government agencies to 'power up your privacy'. This sat under the overarching theme of Privacy and technology: Improving transparency, accountability and security.

The dates and theme for Privacy Awareness Week 2025 will be announced in late 2024 or in 2025.
