Hot on the heels of being named Privacy Champion in the inaugural PICCASO Awards in December 2022, we’re delighted to announce that our Founder & CEO, Robert Baugh, has been longlisted for Computer Weekly’s UKtech50 2023: The longlist of the UK’s influential tech leaders.


About the UKtech50

Each year, Computer Weekly “launches a search for the most influential people in UK IT, asking the tech community who it thinks should be in the top 50“.

Each year, the list of nominations grows, as the tech industry tells us who it thinks deserves a place in the top 50. Now in its 13th year, the UKtech50 list continues to recognise the technology leaders driving the digital economy.

The UKtech50 list “is decided by a judging panel representing every area of the UK IT profession” and will select the final top 50 candidates based on the following criteria:

  • Influence
  • Achievements
  • Profile
  • Leadership
  • Potential

You may know Robert as the founder of Keepabl, from the various events he speaks at, his articles for Keepabl or Thomson Reuters for example with unique insights on the recent Meta fine, his clear personal positions on matters from DPDI to AI on LinkedIn, or from our very popular [YouTube cookies and Privacy policy apply] Privacy Kitchen channel on YouTube.

But we’re not counting chickens just yet as the longlist includes, for example, Tim Berners-Lee, and just being nominated and longlisted is a huge honour.

As Computer Weekly note: “It has been a year that has demonstrated amazing talent and resolve among the country’s technology leaders, which is why Computer Weekly has decided to reveal all of the nominees who were considered for the top 50 list for 2023.

Huge congratulations to everyone who has made it onto the longlist. It is a great achievement and shows the depth of capability across the UK tech industry.

We echo those congratulations and thank Computer Weekly (and those who nominated Robert) for this recognition of our drive to make complex compliance simple and achievable.
