Introduction to Privacy Awareness Week 2020
Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) is an initiative held every year across the Asia Pacific to raise awareness of privacy issues and the importance of protecting personal information.
In 2020 PAW will be celebrated in Victoria from 4 – 10 May 2020. The theme for PAW 2020 is Privacy – protect yours and respect others’.
We’ve developed a suite of digital resources for agencies to celebrate!
