Privacy Awareness Week NSW 2020
About Privacy Awareness Week NSW 2020
Privacy Awareness Week is a global campaign that highlights the importance of privacy and raises awareness for public sector agencies about how to protect the personal information of the people we serve.
This year, Privacy Awareness Week NSW takes place from 4 – 10 May 2020, involving both public sector agencies and citizens in improving understanding and awareness of NSW privacy legislation, and to raise awareness of a person’s privacy rights and agency obligations.
The theme for this year's campaign is Prevent, Detect, Protect. Learn more about the theme below.
Privacy Resources for NSW Public Sector Agencies
Fact Sheet: Privacy by Design
Privacy by design ensures that good privacy practices are built into your organisation's decision-making, as well as the design and structure of your information systems, business processes, products and services.
A Guide to Privacy Impact Assessments
A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) can help you to identify and minimise privacy risks when you are starting a new project or making changes to existing initiatives. A PIA is one way to implement ‘privacy by design’ in your organisation’s practices, and it can help you to build and demonstrate compliance with privacy laws.
2020 Champion Program
This year we will again be running the PAW Champion Program. NSW public sector agencies can join as Champions to help spread the PAW message as well as encourage their own agency and work colleagues to get involved and promote citizen rights.
Champions of the Program will receive a pack full of digital and printable resources, as well as written content such as newsletter articles, blog posts, social media posts and more to make promoting the campaign easy. They will also be sent a free PAW NSW 2020 t-shirt.
Agencies will also be acknowledged as a Champion here on the PAW NSW webpage and via the IPC's social media where possible.
