Privacy Awareness Week

Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) is an initiative held every year across the Asia Pacific to promote and raise awareness of privacy issues and the importance of protecting personal information.

This year PAW will be celebrated in Victoria from 13 – 17 May. The theme for PAW 2019 is Protecting privacy is everyone’s responsibility. From users to developers, legislators to customer service, everyone is responsible for protecting privacy.

OVIC will be hosting a number of events and activities for PAW and will release a range of new resources for organisations, including tip sheets, posters, web images, and more.
