It was a great honor to be selected for an Innovators Choice Award at the Privacy Identity and Innovation conference in Seattle, Washington. Pii2012 had some of the foremost authorities on privacy and digital identity in the audience, and was so popular that the event completely sold out.
We went up against eight different companies for the Innovators Spotlight, and while there was some strong competition, none of them quite hit on the specific issues being discussed at the conference: how do you protect the privacy of user data, how do you offer privacy controls in an enjoyable user experience? What does the future of digital identity look like?
While winning the award was a great validation of the work we’re doing and we’re excited about the people we met as well. While a privacy conference isn’t exactly “cool” in mainstream news today, you could tell that this niche space is going to be ballooning.
We’d like to give a special thanks to the conference organizer, Natalie Fonseca. She did an excellent job putting the event together and we are grateful for the opportunity to have participated. Natalie, you rock!
