Privacy has become a hot topic in recent years, with data breaches and data innovations making headlines on a regular basis. As technology continues to evolve, it has become increasingly important to recognise individuals and organisations that prioritise privacy and data protection. That's why we are excited to announce that the PICCASO Privacy Awards Europe are officially open for entries!
Following an incredible inaugural year in 2022 with 400+ participants, the 2023 programme will open entries across Europe, to recognise and champion the individuals, organisations, and companies that have made significant contributions to protecting individuals' privacy rights, providing thought
leadership and expert advice, and promoting responsible data management practices.
The PICCASO Privacy Awards Europe is the first-of-its kind awards ceremony dedicated to celebrating excellence and achievements in data protection and privacy. The 2023 event will take place later this year, and it aims to recognise individuals, organisations, and companies that have made significant contributions to protecting individuals' privacy rights and promoting responsible data management practices.
We believe that it's essential to acknowledge those who are making huge strides to protect privacy in today's fast evolving digital age. The PICCASO Privacy Awards Europe offer a unique opportunity to recognise and celebrate those who are working to safeguard user data and protect privacy rights.
The award categories for the inaugural event include: Most Impactful Privacy Product of the Year, Privacy Award for Achievement, Rising Star, Privacy Team of the Year, and the newly added International Privacy Protection Award.
Vivienne Artz OBE, Vice Chair of PICCASO Privacy Awards said;

Now is the time to recognise and celebrate these important contributions by elevating and celebrating the privacy profession through the PICCASO Privacy Awards for Europe 2023”
