Privacy Awareness Week (7-11 May) 2018
DATA PROTECTION: FROM PRINCIPLES TO PRACTICE
The PDPC is marking the second week of May 2018 as Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) in Singapore. An initiative by the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities (APPA), PAW is held annually by its members to promote awareness of privacy and personal data protection issues.
This year’s theme “Data Protection: From Principles to Practice” underlines the importance and continual need for organisations to re-assess and make changes in their approach towards their systems, policies, culture and practices, to ensure the robustness of their data protection architecture and implementation.
What does it mean to you?
At work, you can adopt basic data protection practices for daily operational activities. It could be as simple as checking your emails to ensure there is no unnecessary personal data contained within before sending out.
Take this opportunity to reflect on your personal data protection habits too, and pick up easy tips to better protect your personal data!
The PDPC is pleased to participate in a suite of events organised especially for industry during the week.
How do you put principles into practice? The PDPC has developed some resources to help organisations and employees.
