Is your boss monitoring your phone calls? An agency of public administration is longing for your fingerprints? Or a genius in charge has an idea to merge different large databases? Do not hesitate; nominate them for the Big Brother Award!

Candidates for the fifth Hungarian Big Brother Award can be nominated starting today.

The Technology for Man Foundation this fall will again present an award to those private individuals, public administration authorities and private companies who or which are responsible for perpetrating the most egregious violations of our privacy and personal data throughout last year.

Help us to find the most deserving candidates for this award. Please take part in the nomination by first verifying whether or not your candidate has already been nominated. If not, then please nominate him or her yourself.
