Event description

Help us celebrate Privacy Awareness Week in Queensland!

Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) runs from 6-12 May 2024 and it’s an annual celebration shining a light on the importance of protecting and respecting personal information – whether you’re in the public sector and deal with people’s information at work, or if you’re a member of the community wondering how best to keep your information safe. This year’s PAW theme is Privacy and technology: Increasing transparency, accountability and security’.

Keynote presentation and panel discussion

Join us at the PAW launch in Queensland where Ms Carly Kind, Australia's Privacy Commissioner, will deliver the keynote presentation titled, 'Powering up privacy in the data age.'

When it comes to the digital environment, most Australians want more power over their personal information. But in recent years, many of us have begun to feel that access to and use of our data is increasingly out of our control.

In her keynote presentation, Australia’s Privacy Commissioner Carly Kind will discuss how it is essential that promising advances and innovations in areas like artificial intelligence are tempered with responsible practices that empower individuals when it comes to their data. She will explore opportunities to power up privacy protections in the context of both the Queensland and federal governments committing to privacy law reform.

Ahead of reforms, Commissioner Kind will share how public and private sector organisations can enhance transparency, accountability and security to meet the challenges of the data age head on.

Also hear from John Edwards, UK Information Commissioner, as he shares his thoughts on the Privacy Awareness Week theme, ‘Privacy and technology: Improving transparency, accountability and security’.

This will be followed by an expert panel discussion moderated by emcee and journalist, Ms Kim Skubris. The panel includes:

  • Ms Carly Kind, Australia's Privacy Commissioner
  • Mr Chris McLaren, Chief Customer and Digital Officer, Queensland Government Customer and Digital Group
  • Mr Scott McDougall, Queensland Human Rights Commissioner
  • Mr Paxton Booth, Privacy Commissioner, Queensland.
