Data must be classified based on sensitivity, and organizations should maintain robust data lineage and obtain explicit consent for data usage.

"There are steps which can be followed so that this balance is taken care of. One step can be going ahead with a step-by-step data classification, understanding the risk and maintaining a robust data lineage. This means understanding your system can track the origin, transformation and usage of data throughout its life cycle," Jain said. She added that designers of AI systems also must consider ethics, fairness, transparency and accountability in those systems.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Jain discussed:

  • The need for balancing AI-driven insights with stringent privacy requirements;
  • Steps to implement a robust data governance framework, including data classification and consent management;
  • The role of ethical guidelines and privacy-preserving techniques such as differential privacy and federated learning.

Jain is a practicing advocate before the Supreme Court of India and managing partner of Ark Legal. She also is a public speaker, skills trainer, opinion column writer and frequent guest on national television broadcasts. Jain specializes in business litigation and handles legal matters related to information technology.
