Canopy is proud to be recognized as a Startup of the Year: Artificial Intelligence winner by The Globee’s 2022 Golden Bridge Business and Innovation Awards.

Now in its 14th year, the Golden Bridge Awards is a coveted annual program that recognizes and honors the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, innovations, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, and more. Canopy’s bronze award highlights its Data Breach Response software patent, issued in August 2021. 

“When investigating a potential breach, incident response teams always aim to discover the same two things: PII and people. This consistency makes AI the perfect solution for data breach response,” said Ralph Nickl, CEO and Founder of Canopy. “We’ve successfully trained machine learning models to do a lot of heavy lifting in the data breach response process. The issuance of our first patent solidified our position as a pioneer in the cybersecurity technology space, and we’re proud to have our work further recognized with this award.”

Thanks to its powerful AI, Canopy’s Data Breach Response software has been changing the way IR teams approach data breaches for the past four years. Canopy has recently broadened the application of its machine learning models to serve proactive cyber needs as well. The company’s newest software, Privacy Audit, employs its AI-powered PII detection to deliver transparency into how organizations handle, store, and share sensitive data, empowering corporate privacy & security leadership to make impactful changes before an incident occurs.
