I founded Keepabl on 2 November 2017. It’s been a crazy 6 years with ups and downs – and ups – I couldn’t have predicted.
In that time, the Privacy market has grown impressively and positively in all respects, from practitioner numbers to customer awareness, from global laws to vendor coverage, from rare case law to an abundance of guidance, decisions and CJEU cases. And, keeping pace, we’ve grown Keepabl and our award-winning Privacy Management Software 😀
All that’s been in the context of unprecedented events from Covid lockdowns to Brexit to international economic downturns and terrible conflicts driving up inflation and interest rates, which only makes everyone’s progress all the more impressive.
Keepabl’s SaaS came out in beta in late September 2018, at our first trade show. It was the result of almost a year of consulting, building out prototypes and iterating MVPs.
I’d seen a crazily complex SaaS tool in late 2017 and thought, if I don’t want to use that with 20+ years in tech and Privacy, who will? Privacy is such a complex area that Privacy tools need to make life easier, not harder.
My experience as General Counsel at VC-backed growth SaaS companies with West Coast tech teams had been a crucible in learning the importance of focusing on the customer’s ‘jobs to be done’, to avoid vanityware and focus on benefits that solve real-world issues, and being able to effectively manage complex risk and compliance areas with the ability to easily demonstrate that to investors, customers and auditors.
With the incredible uptick in Privacy risk and pain felt around the world, the explosion of digital data, GDPR fines of hundreds of millions, even billions of euros, and the arrival of exciting / frightening AI, our customer-first product philosophy matters now more than ever.
I’m super proud of our team and all who have helped make Keepabl what it is today, and continue to drive it forward.
You can see our customer case studies to see how delighted our customers are with everything from onboarding to reporting, risk management to breach response, and of course the core fundamental of every Privacy Governance program: data mapping and the infamous RoPA!
