Privacy Awareness Week

Privacy Awareness Week is an annual event that highlights the importance of protecting personal information and helps organisations, agencies and the public navigate the privacy landscape.

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

In 2020, the OAIC will celebrate PAW from Monday 4 May to Sunday 10 May.

Sign up your organisation or agency as a PAW supporter to be the first to learn about our plans for 2020 including this year’s theme, key events and a new website.
