PrivacyHawk is pioneering the new category of personal data protection. The product protects individuals’ personal data from falling into the wrong hands, which is becoming one of the most pressing issues facing humanity today. Our personal data and our digital footprints are critical parts of our identity and can be used against us in many ways if we don’t protect them. Technology to protect personal data is needed because it’s too difficult for individuals to manage and protect their data without it.
“Our personal data has emerged as one of the most valuable things about us,” said PrivacyHawk CEO and co-founder, Aaron Mendes. “It also puts us each at enormous risk of fraud, identity theft, hacks, scams and spam. PrivacyHawk is building a future where people’s data can be automatically protected from falling into the wrong hands by reducing their digital footprints.”
“PrivacyHawk delivers personal data protection through robotic process automation and advanced technology, enabling individuals to confidently navigate the digital landscape without fear of data compromise,” said PrivacyHawk CTO and co-founder, Justin Wright. “We’re committed to a future where everyone has transparency and control over their personal data.”
PrivacyHawk will use the funds to support growth in sales, marketing and product development in its mission to protect personal data and reduce everyone’s risk of being targeted by fraud and cybercrimes. Product enhancements will include additional automation and the use of AI to help identify digital footprint vulnerabilities and optimize the ability to remove those exposures.
