AI Security & Privacy
At Dathena, we take your privacy and security very seriously, and are committed to take all the necessary to ensure your data is safe with us. We have put 2 key measures in place:
1. Data Encryption
Data Encryption is the process of encoding information in a way that only authorised parties can see the original decoded information. Although thinkable in theory, it is practically impossible to reverse data encryption without the original key.
Dathena encrypts all personal data by using the latest AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) before storing it inside the database to provide full anonymity. This way, the value of the PIIs (Personally Identifiable Information) are hidden, but their type (name, credit card number, …) are not encrypted to allow displaying them on our dashboards and understanding the sensitivity of documents.
After finishing the data processing and analysis, the full content of the database along with anything that has been processed is deleted from our system. Nothing is stored permanently, apart from the aggregated information needed to display results on the dashboards.
2. Data Vectorisation
Vectorisation (or embedding) is the process to transform text into numerical vectors, which is essential to process for Machine Learning and Deep Learning. While manipulating these vectors, it is impossible to reverse them back to text and read the information.
Indeed, those vectors only approximate the semantics of the text using a representation that averages a group of words with similar meaning. This way, we can tell if 2 vectors represent the same information, but not if they contain the same word such as a client’s name or the contents of a confidential contract. This process is key to document processing, and Dathena uses it to process and analyse documents across all 3 products.
