Cranium, a KPMG Studio company, is an AI models security startup that is building the technology that drives confidence and trust in the use of secure artificial intelligence.

Cranium's mission is to deliver security and trust to the AI revolution.

Cranium spun out from the KPMG Studio in 2023 by Jonathan Dambrot, along with two other co-founders, Felix Knoll and Paul Spicer.. The company is headquartered in Short Hills, New Jersey.


Cranium provides an AI security and trust platform that operates by mapping AI pipelines to validate their security and monitor for adversarial threats. The platform detects and prevents AI attacks, such as data poisoning, model inversion, model evasion and backdoor detection or membership interferences.


Cranium's technology integrates with existing environments without interrupting the way organizations work to test, train and deploy their AI models. Cranium’s platform establishes an AI security framework that provides security and data science teams with a foundation for building a proactive and holistic AI security program.


Cranium's platform also captures and quantifies AI security risk and establishes continuous monitoring.


Cranium was launched with a $7M Seed funding on Apr 05, 2023. The round was led by KPMG and SYN Ventures.
