This year a total of 129 privacy practitioners joined the PAW Champion Program to support Privacy Awareness Week. The IPC would like to thank Champions for helping spread awareness of citizens’ privacy rights and agencies’ responsibilities under NSW privacy legislation.

Although NSW Privacy Awareness Week 2024 has ended, the importance of protecting privacy does not – it continues all year round.

It’s important to make sure your information is protected by keeping your personal information secure, regularly reviewing your privacy settings online and reporting any privacy breaches to the relevant NSW agency.

The IPC can help you understand privacy laws in NSW and give you information on how to protect your personal information and access your rights. Learn more in our privacy resources for citizens.
