Privacy Awareness Week 2017

PAW's 2017 theme, ‘Care when you share’ encouraged individuals to care about their privacy and better inform themselves of what could happen to their personal information when they share it. Public servants are reminded to take care and understand their responsibilities before sharing personal information which includes informing the community about how the agency handles their personal information.

Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) is an annual event for the Asia Pacific region providing an opportunity for individuals and government agencies to promote a culture that protects and respects the privacy of individuals’ personal information and to more generally raise privacy awareness.

On 15 May 2017, PAW was officially launched by the Hon Yvette D’Ath MP, Attorney-General and Minister for Justice and Minister for Training and Skills.
