Privacy Awareness Week 2021

During Privacy Awareness Week (3–9 May 2021) we’re encouraging Queenslanders to ‘Make privacy a priority’.

Knowing how to protect your personal information is as valuable as the information itself.

The simple tips below can help you keep your personal information safe and protected, as well as the personal information of others (who may be less tech savvy).

Make privacy a priority:

  • When using technology and apps—check privacy settings are up-to-date, use multi-factor authentication for added security, create strong passwords.
  • When using social media—be careful what you share, especially if it is personal information about you or a child.
  • When someone asks for your personal information—ask why they need it and will it be securely stored in Australia or somewhere with equivalent protections?
  • When you are asked for someone else’s personal information—where appropriate let that person decide if they want to share it—if they do, they can pass it on.
