Preclusio is a company that provides startups with a machine learning solution to comply with privacy laws. The company's CEO, Heather Wade, elaborates on the machine learning solution, "We have a platform that is deployed on-prem in our customer’s environment, and helps them identify what data they’re collecting, how they’re using it, where it’s being stored and how it should be protected."
The system works by obtaining data in a read-only format, from there sensitive data can be found automatically using machine learning. After sensitive data is found, the company's privacy compliance team can examine the system and make necessary changes.
Privacy regulations continue to be enacted in different data-driven industries, as a result, startups will have to adjust. A notable example is the California Consumer Privacy Act being put into place.
