As more companies use generative artificial intelligence (AI) in their workflows, how they oversee training data is becoming increasingly important. 

On Tuesday, data security provider BigID announced new capabilities geared towards Microsoft Copilot that tailor training data, strengthen AI security, and streamline compliance efforts. The features help organizations “scan for, classify, label, curate, catalog, and cleanse training data to help Microsoft Copilot effectively enforce security guardrails,” according to the press release.

The new features also refine data governance, or the processes, standards, and policies, that an organization uses to manage its internal and external data and ensure it’s used efficiently and securely. The updates make it easier for organizations to execute AI usage policies to stay ahead of data exposure risks, label information accurately, and revoke permissions where necessary to maintain security in Copilot.

Encrypted or unstructured datasets can hide sensitive information. BigID’s upgrade includes a cleansing process that lets users access that information, which “ensures high-quality training data for Copilot, resulting in superior AI models with improved accuracy and reliability,” the company said in the release. 

BigID is also upgrading security measures for Copilot by using AI to classify and label data in Purview, Microsoft’s suite of data security products. The new features locate and manage personal data for more responsible AI compliance and development.

The company claims the new features won’t just beef up AI security but will also improve the models.

“BigID’s enhanced capabilities with Microsoft Purview empower organizations to gain a holistic view of their data landscape,” BigID CEO Dimitri Sirota said in the release. “This enables the curation and cleansing of training data sets for Microsoft Copilot, leading to more robust and bias-free AI models.”

BigID’s announcement says the enhanced features aim to help Copilot users unlock the full potential of AI without sacrificing responsibility. The features aren’t available publicly, but you can request a demo.
