10Fold’s work for its client Bitglass earned honorable mention in Technology Campaign of the Year category for 2016. The “Where’s Your Data?” campaign faced stiff competition from business-to-business and consumer campaigns from all over the country and after being named a finalist the team came home with some hardware (even if it wasn’t first, it’s still an incredible accomplishment).
To summarize the award-winning submission:
10Fold’s client, Bitglass wanted to leverage PR as a platform to rise above the noise of the most widely attended cybersecurity conference in the U.S. and drive traffic to their booth at the show as well as their website. The “Where’s Your Data?” campaign checked both of those boxes, and then some! The edgy campaign highlighted Bitglass’ data-tracking technology and revealed the speed in which stolen data spreads once cybercriminals breach organizations and post the information on the black market or Dark Web.
“The week of the launch tripled Bitglass’ normal website traffic, netting 700 leads, 15,000 visitors to www.bitglass.com”
Beyond proposing the creative outline for this experiment, 10Fold recommended disseminating the information in several formats. 10Fold suggested issuing a press release, creating a hybrid report/infographic and video to depict the velocity in which breached information travels after a hypothetical cyberattack.
The video was playing on repeat at the Bitglass booth during RSA 2015 and the infographic was made available to all foot traffic. All assets were posted online and on all social channels (YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter). 10Fold was able to use the report and digital collateral to emphasize the liquid market for breached data – a particularly hot topic leading up to the show – while promoting Bitglass’ value-add for enterprises with the pain point and need for faster, more accurate breach detection technologies and services to stop the spread of sensitive customer information after a catastrophic breach.
The report not only appeared in a feature story in the Wall Street Journal, but it appeared in an additional online property of the Wall Street Journal, the CIO Journal Morning Download. In a matter of two weeks the report had been covered in more than 80 IT security, consumer and business publications. The week of the launch tripled Bitglass’ normal website traffic, netting 700 leads, 15,000 visitors to www.bitglass.com and the video received over 2,300 views, nearly five times more than anticipated.
