Privacy Awareness Week

Privacy Awareness Week (PAW 2013)

Privacy Awareness Week

PAW is an annual promotion event we hold jointly with other members of the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities (APPA) forum. This year, the event is celebrated in Australia (New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, Victoria), Canada (and British Columbia), Macau, Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea and United States.

The theme of PAW 2013 in Hong Kong is "Think Privacy! Be Smart Online" as we address the privacy challenges posed by the rapidly changing technologies and increasing use of social media. PAW 2013 is supported by 44 partner secondary schools and over 400 members of the Data Protection Officers’ Club.
