The team behind the inaugural PICCASO Awards 2022 put on a lavish events dinner on 8 December 2022 with 300 attendees gathered to celebrate all participants in this great, growing world of Data Protection after what’s been another interesting year!
We were delighted to co-sponsor a table with our great friends at SafePorter, who were also shortlisted for ESG Privacy Initiative. Do get a demo from SafePorter to see how they make the highly sensitive area of measuring and managing successful diversity, equality and inclusion easy and respectful, while minimising personal data collection.
Our respective guests brought in another 3 shortlistings – so it was a night of excitement and, it must be said, a chunk of wooping.
The event was amazingly well supported with 300 attendees. What was so lovely was that the PICCASO categories covered a far wider breadth of the Data Protection landscape than other awards, from the usual vendors and consultants to in-house teams and projects, public and private sector, and leaders in learning, journalism and writing.
It was exhilarating to be able to meet so many people we’ve previously only followed on social media, heard on podcasts or met virtually.
Recognising Robert’s hard work championing Privacy compliance through Keepabl, Privacy Kitchen and more, we’re delighted that our founder Robert Baugh won Privacy Champion 2022. Being named on the shortlist itself was honour enough, to win this personal category has rounded off a great year for Keepabl, following on from our product expansion, sales success, and being named to the RegTech100 for 2023, a third year running, the day before!
Congratulations to all those shortlisted, to the winners, and to PICCASO. We’re looking forward to next year’s event already!
