Hi and welcome to the forums!
If you have a desktop software backup of the Playbook you can restore the data. If you don't have a backup follow the steps for the security wipe, as you will have to setup the Playbook again.
Any apps purchased through App World will still be available.
I attached some links so you can protect your device in the future.
