 Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are beginning to shape information protection and cloud security.  With massive growth in data and broad file sharing in cloud applications, the risk of sensitive data exposure has increased, leading to the adoption of AI-powered data classification technologies.  Security teams burdened with alert overload are looking to ML technologies for help. User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) has become the staple of anomalous data activity detection

Christopher Muffat – VP, Data Classification, Proofpoint

Chris Muffat is the founder and CEO of Dathena, an innovator in artificial intelligence-powered data classification. He joined Proofpoint as the VP of Data Classification with the acquisition of Dathena in January 2022. Prior to launching Dathena, he was the Head of Information Risk Management, Europe and APAC, at Barclays Bank. It was in this role that he discovered that there was no readily available technology solution to address the bank’s onerous information risk management needs. Leveraging his computer science background, he developed an artificial intelligence-based platform to solve the significant data management challenges the bank was facing/ This initial solution was subsequently expanded to form the missing piece of the information risk management puzzle: Dathena's core AI platform.
