Privacy Awareness Week 2024

Privacy Awareness Week NSW 2024 - imagePrivacy Awareness Week is a global campaign that highlights the importance of privacy and raises awareness for public sector agencies about how to protect personal information.

Each year, the Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC) hosts a campaign for NSW citizens and public sector agencies to raise awareness of privacy rights and obligations.

This year’s theme is ‘Privacy and technology: Improving transparency, accountability, and security’ and focuses on creating a more responsible and secure digital landscape that balances technological advancements with the preservation of individual privacy rights.

Under NSW privacy laws, citizens and customers have a right to expect that their personal information is protected by Council. Like all Government agencies, Council aims to create, develop and maintain trust in its digital service delivery. By aligning transparency, accountability, and security, the 2024 Privacy Awareness Week theme aims to foster an environment where citizens can feel confident in their online interactions, knowing that their privacy is respected and protected.
