May 5, 2014 - 2:01pm

OIC has released a new guideline entitled ‘Self-publishing and the privacy principles’ to assist people in becoming aware of the privacy implications of publishing their own personal information by explaining how their privacy rights can be affected when they publish or give their personal information for the purposes of publication.

The guidelines are being published during Privacy Awareness Week 2014, a community awareness campaign which encourages individuals to take an active and informed approach to protecting their personal information and raises awareness among public sector staff of their obligations under the Information Privacy Act 2009.
