Privacy Awareness Week | 1 – 7 May 2023

In today’s digital world, how do we protect our privacy? How do we best guard against breaches to our customer and client data?

Maddocks is supporting Privacy Awareness Week 2023 by going back to basics when it comes to promoting and educating our clients about privacy, data and cyber law.

Back to basics is also the theme of this year’s Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) led by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner between 1 - 7 May.

To help promote the week we have launched this hub with our latest legal insights and publications from our National Privacy, Data and Cyber Law network. We also answer some basic privacy questions that we hear from people across the government and corporate sectors in a series of short videos.
