Artificial intelligence presents a new set of challenges for organizations and security professionals alike. Lack of knowledge and immature processes can lead to unexpected failures with devastating consequences. These consequences haven't gone unnoticed, and new legislation worldwide is focusing on mandating controls around the development of AI.

Oddly enough, in many organizations, the responsibility for security, safety, and privacy related to AI development falls outside of the security team, leaving individuals with the skills to provide perspective on these topics out of the loop.

This trend needs to change. Whether evaluating tactical threats to a system or building a framework to comply with future regulations, security professionals need to be part of the solution.

In this webcast, we look at the landscape of these new risks and suggest some steps you can take when getting started.
