Why is Ekata deprecating the gender signal? Our products need to be used to assess risk where we can guarantee that we do not provide information to discriminate against individuals. The deprecation of this signal helps meet that goal.
Will this affect the Identity Risk Score? No. Gender is not an input into the Identity Risk score. Therefore, no change.
If I use the gender signal in my workflow, how will that affect my operations? Once this signal is no longer offered, any model or workflow that utilizes the signal will receive a [null] response in the API. This signal will no longer appear in Pro Insight.
Is there a different product that will offer the signal? No. After the signal is deprecated, Pro Insight and Identity Check API customers will no longer be able to receive the signal.
What will the response be if my model or ingest of this signal still calls for it? A request for this signal will receive a [null] response via API.
As my company uses the gender signal in its workflows, can I file for an exemption? No.
