Canopy Software is proud to be named a 2023 NVTC Cyber50 Honoree by The Northern Virginia Technology Council. This award recognizes the cyber companies and professionals who are driving innovation, pushing the boundaries in launching new cyber solutions, and contributing to the region’s ongoing stature as one of the nation’s premier cybersecurity hubs.

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.

“The past year has been marked by exponential growth both in high-profile cyber incident events, like the MOVEit hack, as well as advancements in artificial intelligence,” said Ralph Nickl, CEO and Founder of Canopy. “We’re proud to offer this market-leading tool that leverages the full capabilities of AI for breach response data mining, so that companies can alert breach victims faster and comply with data privacy regulations, often without exceeding their cyber liability coverage.”

“The exponential growth of generative AI is changing the cybersecurity landscape,” said Jennifer Taylor, president and CEO of NVTC. “This year NVTC will recognize 50 industry leaders – from a list of nearly 80 nominations – paving the way in cybersecurity and generative AI, while advancing cybersecurity technology to make our nation, communities and workplaces safer.”

2023 marks Canopy's first year as an NVTC Cyber50 award winner. For the past three years, Canopy has also been honored as an NVTC Tech100 Company, a prestigious list that highlights the top companies and leaders in the Greater Washington technology community. Winners will be honored at the 2023 NVTC Cyber Summit and Cyber50 Awards on November 16, 2023, at Valo Park in Tysons, Virginia.
