Interaction Analytics: Redaction Feature

Note: Setup and enablement are conducted by Talkdesk. Please reach out to us if you wish to use this feature.

The “Redaction” feature helps to mitigate the risk of customer-sensitive data exposure in Talkdesk Interaction Analytics™  and/or Talkdesk QM Assist™  by masking sensitive data points in transcriptions and digital interactions [1].

This feature protects Personal Identifiable Information (PII) from being displayed on the transcripts [2], helping to protect data privacy and to reduce expensive compliance risks, while preserving the call's full context.
