News alert: Kiteworks named as a founding member of NIST’s new AI safety consortium – ‘AISIC’

San Mateo, Calif., Feb. 13, 2023 – The U.S. White House announced groundbreaking collaboration between OpenPolicy and leading innovation companies, including Kiteworks, which delivers data privacy and compliance for sensitive content communications through its Private Content Network.

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Artificial Intelligence Safety Institute Consortium (AISIC) will act as a collaborative platform where both public sector and private sector leading organizations will provide guidance on standards and methods in the development of trustworthy AI.

The Kiteworks platform provides customers with a Private Content Network that enables them to employ zero-trust policy management in the governance and protection of sensitive content communications, including the ingestion of sensitive content into generative AI (GenAI).

Kiteworks unifies, tracks, controls, and secures sensitive content moving within, into, and out of organizations. With Kiteworks, organizations can significantly improve risk management and ensure regulatory compliance on all sensitive content communications.


The consortium, AISIC, brings together over 200 of the nation’s foremost AI stakeholders to support the development and deployment of trustworthy and safe AI technologies. This initiative aligns with President Biden’s Executive Order on Artificial Intelligence, focusing on key priorities, such as red-teaming, capability evaluations, risk management, safety, and security guidelines, and watermarking synthetic content.

According to U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina M. Raimondo, “Through President Biden’s landmark Executive Order, we will ensure America is at the front of the pack – and by working with this group of leaders from industry, civil society, and academia, together we can confront these challenges to develop the measurements and standards we need to maintain America’s competitive edge and develop AI responsibly.”


Tim Freestone, Chief Strategy Officer at Kiteworks, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration: “Kiteworks’ selection underscores our commitment to protect sensitive content from being ingested into public GenAI large language models (LLMs). Kiteworks is very excited to play a pivotal role as a groundbreaking member of the NIST AI Safety Institute Consortium, tapping our expertise in data security and compliance to help guide the responsible development and management of AI solutions.”

For further insights into this groundbreaking collaboration and Kiteworks’ involvement, Kiteworks’ Freestone is available for interviews and discussions.
