About Us


Allow data-driven organizations to build and test responsible AI governance systems using proven techniques from privacy and data protection.  


We work together with companies to build safety and trust in their AI and ML products.    


  • Respect:  We respect ourselves, our clients, and the people whose data we are protecting.  We believe honesty and humility are core aspects of respect. We offer honesty, humility, and respect in all our interactions.
  • Quality and Process: We do work we are proud of and anticipate our clients will be proud of the outcomes as well.  We arrive at quality through clear processes and analysis. 
  • Inclusion: Technology should be designed for everyone.  We believe in building inclusive technology that takes into account the plethora of expectations and needs of people.
  • Health:  We believe in the importance of mental and physical health for ourselves and our clients.  This means we do not work on weekends.  We make time to care for ourselves and others.

Rebecca Balebako


 Dr. Rebecca Balebako has been working on data protection for software and machine learning since 2010. She has helped start-ups, large tech companies, and specialized government agencies define strategies for machine learning and privacy, including face recognition and speech recognition.

As a former lead of the Google Privacy Red Team,  she improved the privacy infrastructure and reduced risk for terabytes of data, thousands of machine learning models, and hundreds of third-party apps.  Previous work on AI led to improvements in early speech recognition as well as a framework for responsible face recognition.   

When you work with Rebecca, you can expect that she will apply human-centric processes and fact-based decision-making to improve data protection.   

Rebecca has published numerous academic papers on usable privacy, which have been cited widely, including in privacy regulation.   Dr.  Balebako is also an IAPP Fellow of Information Privacy (CIPP/E and CIPT) and is trained in AI Governance and Machine Learning.  She holds a Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy, focusing on privacy, as well as degrees in Software Engineering and Math.

Rebecca lives in Switzerland with her two fierce and formidable daughters.  A native English speaker, she also speaks advanced intermediate German and French
