Privacy Awareness Week 2017
The Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) is marking the first week of May 2017 as Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) in Singapore. An initiative by the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities, PAW is held annually to promote awareness of privacy and personal data protection issues.
This year, we stress the importance of sharing personal data with care in today's data-driven world where Big Data and the Internet of Things take centre stage, through the theme "Share With Care".
With the rate of technological advancement, the way personal data changes hands will continue to transform and grow. On the back of this evolving landscape, individuals and businesses should also step up and take control of personal data sharing.
For the man on the street, this means knowing when to provide his or her personal data to organisations, and for what purposes. For an organisation, this means putting in place safeguards to ensure disclosure of personal data, whether internally or to third-parties, is legitimate and well-protected.
