Privacy Awards give a podium to companies and governments that see privacy as an opportunity to stand out positively.

The Dutch Privacy Awards offer a podium to organisations that see Privacy as an opportunity to distinguish themselves positively and make privacy-friendly business and innovation the norm. The Awards are presented annually by Privacy First around European Privacy Day.
