Canopy Software is proud to be honored as an NVTC Tech 100 Company for the third year in a row. The Northern Virginia Technology Council’s NVTC Tech 100 is a prestigious list that highlights the top companies and leaders in the Greater Washington technology community.

Founded in Virginia in 2018, Canopy has since gained global prominence as a data privacy & breach response tech disruptor. Its Data Breach Response software uses AI and machine learning to connect personal data with affected people faster and more accurately than any tool on the market. This has enabled digital forensics & incident response (DFIR) firms and review & legal service providers to save insurers millions per year on cyber claims.

“We’ve made exciting advancements with our Data Breach Response software over the past year to help incident response teams keep up with the increasingly volatile threat landscape,” said Ralph Nickl, CEO and Founder of Canopy. “Cyber incidents are no longer a question of ‘if,’ but ‘when,’ and jurisdictions across the globe are increasing breach notification requirements. We’re proud to offer this market-leading tool so that companies can alert breach victims faster and comply with strict data privacy regulations, often without exceeding their cyber liability coverage.”

“2022 has been a year of tremendous growth for our region’s technology hub, thanks to the dynamic companies and individuals who are innovating and making a positive impact in the world. Their contributions are the reason our region is one of the nation’s most vibrant and collaborative technology communities,” said Jennifer Taylor, President and CEO of NVTC. “NVTC congratulates Canopy for going above and beyond within the incident response field. Even in these unprecedented times of record levels of high inflation, the future of our tech community is brighter than ever, because of the momentous contributions of these leaders and companies.”

Canopy is one of 71 companies, 23 executives, and six emerging leaders on the 2022 NVTC Tech 100 list, selected from nearly 200 nominations. Winners will be honored at the NVTC Tech 100 Celebration on December 6, 2022, at Capital One Hall in Tysons, Virginia.
