Last week was Privacy Awareness Week in Australia, and we were proud to partner with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner to raise awareness as to privacy in Australia.

During the course of Privacy Awareness Week, we published a range of articles which considered how businesses should consider privacy and the management of personal information.
