Prosegur Security Announces Corporate AI Policy
The company states this new policy will serve as a guideline for the ethical, moral, regulatory and security values applied to technological solutions that incorporate AI.
DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Prosegur Security, a global security technology leader, has launched a new Responsible Artificial Intelligence (AI) Policy in an effort to proactively decrease risks associated with AI use.
The company states this new policy will serve as a guideline for the ethical, moral, regulatory and security values applied to technological solutions that incorporate AI. Prosegur claims that it is the first security company to establish a policy of this kind, and the policy will be adopted wherever Prosegur operates.
“Setting a framework for Responsible AI is not just ideal, but it is necessary for today’s security landscape,” states John Navarro, global president of technology solutions at Prosegur Security.
“Prosegur is leading the charge by ensuring Responsible AI through our new policy, and by setting expectations for our employees and partners to uphold a defined set of standards.”
The company notes that as artificial intelligence continues to gain popularity Prosegur’s Responsible AI Policy will protect and preserve the rights and freedoms of users affected by the application of AI technologies. Prosegur points out that in order to be a Responsible AI partner, an AI system must ensure a number of requirements including human action and oversight, technical soundness and safety, privacy and data management, transparency, diversity, non-discrimination and equity, environmental and social well-being, and accountability.
In order to comply with AI requirements, Prosegur Security has developed an AI governance model that includes the implementation of a corporate or local board, depending on where the project is located. Prosegur will hire a chief ethics officer, who will oversee compliance with the new policy and ensure Responsible AI is implemented with new technologies.
“I’m excited to be part of a team that will lay the groundwork for current and future technologies and part of a company that cares about safeguarding its users through Responsible AI,” adds Mike Dunn, CTO at Prosegur Security.
“With the implementation of Prosegur’s Responsible AI Policy, development of an AI governance model, and hiring of a Chief Ethics Officer, Prosegur will continue to be an innovative leader in the global security industry.”
