Privacy Awareness Week 2020 (4 – 10 May)
The theme for PAW 2020 is: Be smart about privacy.
These days smart technologies have become more and more prevalent in people’s lives from smart phones to smart watches, smart TVs, smart home-assist devices, smart lightbulbs, smart thermostats, smart security systems and smart cars. The concept of smart technologies is far-reaching (rolling out beyond the personal realm) as more urban areas become ‘smart cities’, where technology is used to enhance services like transport, safety and energy. However, greater connection to the internet and collection of data means greater challenges for the protection of personal information.
We are encouraging members of the community and public servants to value personal information through a better understanding of their privacy rights and responsibilities.
The below PAW resources and activities are available to raise awareness and understand privacy responsibilities and rights in Queensland.
We will launch a range of new resources leading up to and during Privacy Awareness Week 2020.
Visit the eSafety Commissioner for information about having safer and more positive experiences online, including:
