Privacy Awareness Week 2014

Privacy Awareness Week takes place in the first week of May each year, and this year’s theme was “Mobilise your privacy, stay safe online”.

Now more than ever it is vital that both organisations and individuals are vigilant when it comes to privacy protection, particularly with the increasing use of online and smartphones. Many organisations are also using mobile apps to provide information to the public, and the privacy implications of this affects both the provider and the user.

The theme “Mobilise your privacy, stay safe online” encourages us all to consider such questions as:

  • What are my responsibilities when using mobile apps?
  • Have I checked my privacy settings lately?
  • What are my rights under NSW privacy law?
  • Who can help me with this process?
