Privacy Awareness Week 2016 (9 – 15 May)

This year, under the theme ‘Privacy in your hands’, we are encouraging people to take privacy rights and responsibilities into their own hands: for each public servant to harness the importance of their role when handling personal information and for members of the community to take control by understanding what they can do to safeguard their own personal information. Our PAW resources and activities will equip individuals with the tools they need to achieve these goals.

Message from Privacy Commissioner Philip Green
