Privacy Awareness Week 2024 (6 – 12 May)

Queensland will celebrate Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) from 6-12 May 2024 and we invite public sector agencies and the community to be a part of the week-long event. This year’s theme is ‘Privacy and technology: improving transparency, accountability and security’.

Advances in technology can potentially improve our standard of living, safety and give us access to greater information so that we can be informed, but it can also bring with it the potential to intrude further into our personal lives.

Queenslanders’ personal information must be protected and now, more than ever, agencies need to ensure they’re getting privacy right, because it helps build and maintain community trust. When agencies introduce new technology to products, services or systems, it also must be done in a way that enhances transparency, accountability and security.

During PAW it’s a great time for a refresher, so we’re sharing helpful tips and resources below on how to protect personal information, whether you work in the public sector, or if you’re a member of the community wondering if there is more you can do to protect your own privacy.
