IAPP Privacy Tech Vendor Report

When the IAPP released the inaugural “Privacy Tech Vendor Report” in 2017, the privacy technology marketplace was on the precipice of a major evolutionary shift. The EU General Data Protection Regulation was a little more than a year away from becoming law, and early tech vendors in the marketplace were only just starting to find their footing. The IAPP identified 44 vendors for the first report. The number was always expected to go up, but the scale of its growth curve was then unknown.

Since 2017, the privacy landscape underwent a metamorphosis. The emergence of the California Consumer Privacy Act, Brazilian General Data Protection Law and other privacy laws around the world have forced organizations to adhere to a new array of compliance requirements, and in response, the demand for privacy tech grew exponentially.

The IAPP is now releasing its fifth annual “Privacy Tech Vendor Report.” Each year, the report has chronicled the rise of privacy tech vendors in the marketplace, and this year is no different. The IAPP has identified 365 privacy tech vendors in 2021, all of which can be found in the directory section of this report.

Privacy tech has undergone a paradigm shift over the past five years, affecting everything from the development of privacy tech tools to the attitude toward privacy tech vendors. The five-year mark of the report’s existence is perhaps the proper time to look at how far the privacy tech market has gone and where it will go in the future.
