About KI Design

KI Design is a specialized Canadian company that has been successfully providing privacy & security advisory, data analytics, and public sector digital transformation consulting services since 2001. KI Design is led by Dr. Waël Hassan, a computer science and privacy expert with over 20 years of experience in the field. Dr. Hassan has a Ph.D. in validating legal compliance from the University of Ottawa. We at KI Design continue to develop and perfect our data analytics solutions by working with organizations across various sectors, including government, healthcare, education, retail, and energy.  

Our work with multiple government departments and agencies, private companies, and non-profit organizations has helped us understand that while many of these organizations can benefit from AI and data analytics technologies, few have the capacity to implement them using existing in-house resources and expertise. We help organizations to build their capacity to take advantage of data insights, while also managing personal data responsibly in order to protect public trust.

Our staff has specific and recent experience in compliance and assurance, big data, data protection and information policy, business architecture, web engineering, and project management.

Our products and services include:

KI Data

KI Design operates our own media and data analytics platform, KI Data. Our platform integrates data from multiple sources to provide insights into public perception and reputation, campaign performance, audience demographics, and more.

Clients in government, industry and the nonprofit sector use KI Data to optimize communications strategy and public relations.

KI Audit

KI Audit is a specialized AI solution for access auditing, which enables healthcare organizations to monitor records access effectively with limited Privacy Office resources. Our predictive analytics tools mine healthcare data to identify the clinical and operational reasons that employees access records. KI Audit is able to explain 95-99% of accesses, and identify the most suspicious accesses that may represent breaches of patient privacy.

PrivaDoc Consulting
