Securiti.ai, a startup that recently raised $50 million in series B funding, is using artificial intelligence to help companies comply with customer data privacy regulations like EU's GDPR and California's CCPA. The startup has raised a total of $81 million in two rounds since its inception in 2019. Securiti.ai creates digital personas for each individual and finds copies of data shared across systems or with third-party vendors or partners to help companies comply with right-to-be-forgotten laws.
Companies using securiti's software begin by defining their data sources, then send out a bot that gathers customer data across all of the data sources they have defined. Securiti supports links to more than 250 common modern and legacy data sources out of the box. Once the bot grabs the data and creates a central record, humans come in to review the results and make any adjustments and final decisions on how to handle a data request from the customer.
