The IAPP Privacy Innovation Awards

Today’s organizations can transform themselves through the integration of privacy. The Innovation Awards shine a light on organizations that use privacy to differentiate themselves and build customer and citizen trust.

Congratulations to our 2022 IAPP Innovation Awards winners!

Americas (including Mexico) Region: Dechert LLP

Dechert LLP is a winner for Flo Health’s “Anonymous Mode.” Anonymous Mode is a new feature for Flo Health’s hugely popular reproductive health app that allows women to use the application without their data being tied to them individually. The feature provides an option to protect women’s privacy by still giving them access to their fertility history and yet protecting that data from being identified with them through company records.

EMEA/APAC Region: Amurabi and King

Amurabi and King are a winner for creating a new and playful experience for the millions of King players when interacting with its public-facing privacy notice to make it truly engaging, fun and accessible to all, while immersing the users in King's universe. The new design is adapted to mobile screens so that King and Amurabi are addressing a basic problem in a digital world: people know they probably should read privacy policies, but they actually don't, most likely because the experience is not engaging.

Americas (including Mexico) Region: Privado Inc., Private AI, Walgreens Boost Alliance
EMEA/APAC Region: ERNIEAPP LTD, ImmuniWeb SA, Statice

About the Awards

The IAPP Privacy Innovation Awards recognize unique plans, processes and services in global privacy and data protection in both private and public sectors.

We seek distinguished organizations integrating privacy in ways that elevate its value as a competitive differentiator and centerpiece of customer and civic trust.

Size does not matter — only innovation, creativity and results. The IAPP Privacy innovation Awards will recognize two organizations. One organization from EMEA, Asia, Oceania, and one from North America (US and Canada) and Latin America (Including Mexico).

See our list of past winners.


The awards are judged each year by a different panel of privacy experts representing a variety of industries, sectors, and geographies. The judges are IAPP members and serve on a volunteer basis at our invitation.

The judges this year are comprised of privacy pros who represent Canada, Mexico, United States, Singapore, India, Netherlands, Hungary, and Australia. These individuals have served as IAPP volunteers ranging from Advisory Board members, KnowledgeNet chairs, conference volunteers and virtual mentors.

Thank you, 2022 Judges!
