What is Privacy Awareness Week?

Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) is an initiative of the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities forum (APPA) held every year to promote awareness of privacy issues and the importance of the protection of personal information. Activities are held across the Asia Pacific region by APPA members.

The OIPC will provide tips, resources, and discussions on Twitter and Instagram May 2 - 6. To stay in the know, make sure you check out @BCInfoPrivacy on Twitter and Instagram. Follow the conversation on social media with #2016PAW, and #privacymatters.
