Privacy Week is right around the corner! As you may have seen, we have a pretty busy lineup of activity planned, from privacy forums in Auckland and Wellington, privacy artwork, New Zealand’s first Right to Know Day and more.
The week is also a great opportunity for other agencies, large and small that handle personal information (that’s almost every agency) to capitalise on our activity to internally raise privacy awareness.
To this end, we’ve been fielding a lot of calls from agencies telling us their plans for Privacy Week. Here are some of the things we’ve heard so far:
The key to a successful privacy activity is to keep it focussed on what it means for your agency. Rather than tell people about privacy in general, tell people what it means for them in the context of your organisation. For example, rather than explain what a privacy officer is, tell people who the privacy officer is and how to contact him or her.
What is your organisation doing for privacy week? Comment and let us know.
