One of the nominees came out on top according to the jury: the company Web-IQ. The jury was particularly moved by the fact that the company more or less coincidentally encountered criminal activities on the internet and subsequently decided to step up and use the available knowledge and experience to counter it. At the same time, money still had to be earned with Web-IQ’s primary business activities. The - absolutely defensible - self-interest of a company has been made subordinate to a greater good: the societal interest. Thanks to Web-IQ’s technical resources, developed specially for this, police and municipalities have been able to detect victims of human trafficking and forced prostitution and free them from terrible situations.
