A not-for-profit organization founded in 2000, the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) is the largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community. Through their established outreach and resources, the organization aims to provide a platform for privacy professionals from all over the globe to share their knowledge, expertise, and practices. This platform has given way to a community that takes advantage of the opportunity to bounce ideas and educate one another, driving to further progress the field of information privacy. Their prominence within the field has also allowed them to initiate and bring available the only internationally recognized credentials in the practice (CIPP, CIPM, and CIPT).

The IAPP annually recognizes and awards individuals and organizations that are making impacts on advancing the field of information privacy. Among these prestigious recognitions are the HPE-IAPP Privacy Innovation Awards. In consideration to obtain this award are programs and services recognized in global privacy and data protection that have proven to be frontrunning privacy implementation initiatives. A panel of judges rank nominations on a number of criteria including:
- Depth of adoption
- Thought, leadership and integration
- Revenue and profitability enhancement
- Enhanced competitiveness
- Proportion of customers impacted
- Return on investment
Awarded programs and services are acknowledged for providing their respective organizations competitive advantages through their customers’ and the general market’s trust. This year, we are ecstatic to report that one of the two Privacy Innovation Awards was presented to our very own SAP Data Custodian at the Privacy. Security. Risk. 2019 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
