Our Story

 

Our team came together with different critical backgrounds and saw the need for a new way for companies to show that they are doing the right thing with people’s data.

“In representing the United States on data privacy all around the world during the Obama Administration, it was clear that privacy is a fundamental human right, it is a critical trade issue, and it is a bet-the-company issue for almost every company. To really tackle privacy, you have to really understand privacy protection, the technical stack, and how data is used, stored and processed. We saw immediately that we had the team to do that.

“For over two decades of studying and developing big data platforms and writing more than 100 research papers, I witnessed how such platforms were making it easy to collect, distribute and analyze data, but hard to trace where it came from, where it was going and how it was being used. We needed a different way to think about privacy in the big data world.

“When leading the technology teams at small and large companies, I really understood how difficult it had become to show your customers that you were taking care of their personal information — even when you were. It was clear that development teams needed a better solution…we were just spending way too much time answering the same privacy questionnaires over and over.”

“Starting with my days at NASA, I knew that machine learning could really help on tough issues for companies, and I saw that in field after field. When the challenge of privacy hit my radar, I knew that bringing that insight to this fundamentally people driven problem was critical.
