360 Privacy, winner of the North America and Latin America region:
360 Privacy's Delete Program aims to protect the digital identity, reputation, and security of individuals and families. By removing personally identifiable information from data brokers websites on the open web, conducting daily monitoring to prevent data repopulation, and securing personal technology infrastructure, this program helps to keep personal information out of the hands of sophisticated threat actors and fraudsters.

EU Cloud Code of Conduct and SCOPE Europe, winner of the EMEA and APAC region:
The EU Cloud Code of Conduct General Assembly is developing an article 46 GDPR safeguard, namely the Third Country Transfers Module, as an on-top module to the approved EU Cloud CoC GDPR Code of Conduct in response to challenges surrounding international data transfers. By incorporating requirements derived from the EDPB Guidelines and the “Schrems II” ruling, the Third Country Transfers Module aims to enhance transparency and accountability for Cloud Service Providers, benefiting data processors, controllers and data subjects, while fostering market harmonization for Cloud.
