Australian Privacy Awards - Open to NFPs
16 May 2008 at 2:34 pm
Pro Bono Australia readers are invited to nominate for the 2008 Australian Privacy Awards, which recognise and reward good privacy practices across the private and public sectors.
An initiative of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, the Awards will be presented in four categories – Community and NGO Award (includes charities), Large Business Award, Microsoft Small-Medium Business Award, and the Symantec Government Award – with an overall Grand Award presented to the most outstanding entrant.
The Awards recognise and reward organisations that have shown a commitment to good privacy practice.
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner established the Awards program in order to acknowledge agencies and organisations that "get it right" in protecting their customers’ personal information.
The closing date for nominations is 9 July 2008. Further information and nomination forms can be found at http://www.privacy.gov.au/about/awards/index.html.
