At Smart Protection, I focus on data analytics and Business Intelligence, using tools to analyze diverse data to protect digital assets. In my daily work I drive a data-driven strategy, identifying digital threats and collaborating with all functions to translate insights into practical strategies. My role is transversal in the company, supporting most of the teams in my area.
Business Intelligence is the process of collecting, analyzing and presenting data to support business decision making with appropriate information. It is about facing challenges from an analytical point of view - avoiding subjectivity - relying on technologies that convert large amounts of data into valuable information. It is a key tool to help make strategic decisions.
At Smart Protection, the data fundamentally comes from the web, marketplaces and social networks we constantly monitor. This data is available to everyone. Our job is to capture them efficiently and focus on detecting brand abuse, counterfeits and other digital threats that clients need to keep under control.
The information is subject to automatic processes in which the data is processed and analyzed for different purposes: detecting patterns, trends, relationships… The normalization and cleaning of this data at an early stage of the process is vital to later guarantee that our AI algorithms and methodologies can reach high degrees of confidence in order to classify everything that is captured. In this process, Business intelligence tools help locate specific insights that are essential to understand and provide personalized solutions to our clients.
The value lies in the ability to quickly locate violations and be able to initiate enforcement actions to remove content that harms the brands that hire us. This data not only provides them with a clear view of the threats they have on the web, but also allows them to adopt strategies and make better decisions.
Our customers are able to improve their informed decisions in various ways, such as: balancing their marketing and advertising strategies to counteract brand abuse, and identifying and addressing the distribution of counterfeit products. They may even find price alterations or unauthorized sellers that they did not suspect and cause them to lose revenue. The information we offer, enriched by the insights we provide through Business Intelligence tools thanks to our knowledge of the sector, is an important asset for our clients.
In short, at Smart Protection, Business Intelligence appears as one of the foundations on which we build effective digital asset protection solutions. The ability to turn data into actionable insights and locate specific insights not only drives any business strategy, but also empowers our clients to meet the digital challenges of our time with confidence and agility. In a world where information is key, Business Intelligence becomes a beacon for companies that pursue success.
