The Brandeis Award is named in honor of Louis Brandeis and awarded by Patient Privacy Rights, a health privacy watchdog. It recognizes "significant intellectual, cultural, legal, scholarly, and technical contributions to the field of health information privacy." (In his 1928 dissent to Olmstead v. United States, Brandeis famously defined privacy as "the right to be left alone.") [1]

Recipients include the following.

Privacy International, a UK privacy activist organization, also has its own Louis Brandeis Award for privacy.
