Category 1: Grant Thornton Innovation Award

What is the award for?

The innovation award, sponsored by Grant Thornton, recognises initiatives designed to promote greater awareness, personal responsibility and accountability for the safe and ethical handling, processing and storage of personal data. The criteria for this award can include innovative training, events, discussion groups or simulations designed to put (and keep) good data governance or aspects of it such as cyber security, permanently at the forefront of our/their minds.

Who is it for?

The award will be presented to either an individual or team who have made a positive and significant difference to the governance of either an organisation or alternatively the wider data protection or cyber security community.

Presented by David Carney, Grant Thornton

Category 3: Bijou Award

What is the award for?

The Bijou Award presented by Emma Martins is open to anyone who supports the principles of positive, constructive, and collaborative engagement for the benefit of the community. It is inspired by Project Bijou, the ODPA’s social initiative launched in May 2021 to support and nurture positive cultural change around how people and organisations treat people’s data. It recognises that enforcement alone is not enough to change behaviours and that sharing stories, knowledge and experiences related to ethical data use is a powerful way to engage people on a cultural level, to put the protection of individuals at the forefront of all we do.

Who is it for?

Anyone responsible for handling data in any way. It’s open to anyone within the Bailiwick or beyond who encapsulates and/or embraces Project Bijou’s message.

Presented by Emma Martins
