Our personal information is a critical input to the economy and government agencies, and we are seeing heightened awareness of privacy issues as organisations and agencies face increasingly complex data protection challenges.
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.
For organisations and agencies, it’s a reminder to review privacy practices and policies and educate their staff about information handling obligations.
For the public, it’s an opportunity to share information and practical tips that empower people to take control of their personal information.
