IAPP Privacy Vanguard Award
Each candidate for the IAPP Privacy Vanguard Award must be nominated by an IAPP member with support letters from no more than two additional individuals who have knowledge and involvement with the candidate’s accomplishments. No one individual may endorse more than one candidate. Candidates may nominate themselves, but must include support letters from other professionals with the self-nomination.
All nominees (or nominating parties) must provide a one-page summary of the accomplishments of the candidate that specifically relate to the Vanguard Award’s criteria.
The IAPP Privacy Vanguard Award is given each year to the individual professional who best demonstrates outstanding leadership, knowledge and creativity in the field of privacy and data protection, whether through spearheading projects or programs that positively impact the privacy profession or through achievements over the course of an entire tenure or career.
All submitted nominees are reviewed and a winner is selected by the executive committee of the board of directors of the IAPP. The award winner is then notified privately by the IAPP. This information remains confidential until the award ceremony.
Throughout the judging process, the award candidates, nominating parties, authors of support letters and other individuals relating to the nomination of the candidate may be contacted directly by the IAPP for the purpose of verifying information or obtaining additional information relating to the candidate.
The next nomination period will open in May. Please e-mail any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
