MyData Global collaborates with companies and organisations that provide human-centric infrastructure for personal data management and sharing. Their services enable individuals to access, manage, integrate, and re-use their personal data in a human-centric way. We call their services “MyData operators”.
MyData Global organises the MyData Operator award to recognise and celebrate organisations that have shown leadership in the personal data space. Awardees need to demonstrate how they empower individuals with the tools they need to manage their personal data. By participating in the award process, service providers join the journey towards interoperability as they search for common practices, standards and technologies.
To date, a total of 30 service providers have been awarded the MyData Operator Award. Awarded organisations were required to demonstrate how they create agency for human-centric data control, and how the data and value flows in their ecosystems.
To be considered for the award, these organisations showed how their services have the potential to interoperate with data sources, data using services, and each other. See the 2021 awardees’ applications at https://mydata-global.org/awarded-operators
Receiving a MyData Operator Award demonstrates that a business and its operations have an ethical approach to personal data that gives individuals control.
