Patent-pending CSR Breach Reporting ToolKit™, a service that expedites complex reporting to authorities in the event of data loss, was recognized in the technology category at the IAPP Privacy Dinner held last week in San Jose, Calif. in conjunction with the IAPP Privacy Academy 2012.

“This year’s HP-IAPP Privacy Innovation Award winners represent the visionaries in our industry. The pioneering efforts of these organizations to develop original and comprehensive approaches to privacy and security not only benefit consumers and businesses, but elevate the profession as a whole,” said IAPP President and CEO Trevor Hughes. “It’s a privilege for our team to be recognized for solving critical problems with innovations that make compliance easier.
