Identity Guard® by Intersections Inc. Launches Privacy Now™, The First IBM Watson-Enabled Consumer Identity Protection and Privacy Service
With the recent influx of large data breaches and server hacks, protecting one's personal privacy has become a key concern in the digital age. According to
Privacy Now™ combines financial account monitoring of traditional identity protection services with comprehensive monitoring of consumers' self-reported behavioral, social, and professional data. In addition, the proprietary risk algorithm by Identity Guard® monitors the web, public record data and other relevant safeguards. Privacy Now™ analyzes this data combined with personal profile data that users choose to share to provide near real-time alerts. It also gives feedback for a highly personalized service that redefines identity theft protection and addresses the much larger market of providing protection for privacy and personal information.
Because it utilizes IBM Watson, Privacy Now™ also has the ability to communicate via news alerts and personal recommendations, as well as monitor relevant content and categorize various factors that contribute to a consumer's identity protection and privacy. Watson's AlchemyData News API will enable Privacy Now™ to digest more than 250,000 news articles from 75,000 sources every day to flag news that could impact a consumer's digital safety. In addition, when Privacy Now™ combines its advanced monitoring of various data sources with the Watson Natural Language Classifier API, it can quickly interpret the information users report via a survey when accessing their account. Privacy Now™ can use that analysis to help determine that user's risk level to cybersecurity threats.
