Working with HSBC as a lead investigator of Swiss Leaks, the largest data leak in Swiss banking history, Chris Muffat, Dathena's Founder and CEO, understood that the root cause behind the crisis was HSBC’s failure to identify what it needed to protect.
Over the next two years, he came to realize that all organizations systematically fail to quickly and accurately identify and classify their sensitive information, thereby putting at risk their customers, employees and shareholders. Thus the idea behind Dathena was born.
While heading Information Risk Management at Barclays Bank in Europe and APAC, Chris was unable to find satisfactory solutions to his data governance needs. He thus leveraged his computer science background to build Artificial Intelligence-based technology that solved the real challenges the bank was facing. This initial solution was subsequently expanded and today forms the core of Dathena.
