Leader in digital protection for executives, high-profile, and high-net-worth individuals recognized for having demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year

ORLANDO, Fla., March 24, 2022BlackCloak, the first Concierge Cybersecurity & Privacy™ Protection Platform for Executives and High-Profile Individuals, today announced that it has won “Best Cybersecurity & Network Security” at the inaugural WealthTech Americas Awards 2022. Sponsored by WealthBriefing, the WealthTech Americas Awards recognizes companies that have “demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year.” In February, BlackCloak, a pioneer of Digital Executive Protection, was named a finalist for “Best Cyber Security” by WealthBriefing’s sister company, The Family Wealth Report. 

“The organizations and individuals who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the winners and to those who have put so much work into each winning submission,” said Stephen Harris, ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing. “These awards recognize the very best operators in Americas’ wealth management, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in Americas’ wealth management.”  

BlackCloak emerged as the overall cybersecurity category winner by besting a highly contested group of finalists chosen from a large pool of entrants. The independent judges, which consisted of members from WealthBriefing’s Advisory Board, evaluated entrants on the basis of their submissions and their responses to a number of specific questions that focused on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics.

“BlackCloak is filling a major gap in cybersecurity and online privacy that cannot be solved through software alone by serving as the digital bodyguards of uniquely at-risk individuals with significant wealth, assets, access, and esteem,” said Chris Pierson, BlackCloak founder and CEO. “We’re thankful to WealthBriefing for recognizing the holistic value that our Platform and white-glove concierge approach provides to those with little time but a lot to lose.”

Cybercriminals and fraudsters are increasingly targeting individuals with wealth, status, access, and reputation.  As the leader in digital protection, BlackCloak is the first and only online privacy and cybersecurity solution built specifically to protect uniquely at-risk clientele from financial fraud, identity theft, targeted cyberattacks, and other modern threats to their personal digital lives.
