Understanding the Joe Biden Executive Order on AI and Enhancing Cybersecurity: Key Takeaways and Recommendations

On October 30, 2023, the White House issued an Executive Order promoting safe, secure, and trustworthy artificial intelligence (AI) deployment. This Executive Order recognizes the global challenges and opportunities presented by AI and emphasizes the need for collaboration, standards development, and responsible government use for national security.

CISOs: Are You Applying NIST / CISA Standards to ALL Data Including the Cloud?

Security leaders want to solve problems identifying and understanding anomalies or account access behaviors by correlating anomalous behaviors of specific accounts with other parameters like geography or ingress and egress points, but few rules-based Cybersecurity tools have the ability to do that without a great deal of manual data massaging and manipulating.

Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2023 Recap

One of the key predictions is that by 2027, 50% of chief information security officers (CISOs) will adopt human-centric design practices in their cybersecurity programs to minimize operational friction and maximize control adoption. This approach focuses on designing security controls around individuals rather than technology or threats. It recognizes that employees play a crucial role in cybersecurity and aims to reduce the likelihood of risky behavior.

Forbes Technology Council: Why Large Language Models (LLMs) Alone Won’t Save Cybersecurity

The star of the moment is Large Language Models (aka LLMs), the foundational model that powers ChatGPT. There are plenty of documented examples of truly impressive feats built on this technology: writing reports or outputting code in seconds. At its core, LLMs basically ingest A LOT of text (e.g., think Internet) as a corpus of training data and rely on human feedback in a type of supervised training called reinforcement learning.

AI Offers Potential to Enhance The U.S. Department of Homeland Security

The establishment of the AI Task Force by the DHS demonstrates a commitment to harnessing the potential of AI in addressing emerging threats and safeguarding national security. By leveraging AI technology in various areas, such as supply chain integrity, countering drug trafficking, combating online child exploitation, and securing critical infrastructure, the DHS aims to stay ahead of evolving risks and protect the nation more effectively.

Forbes Technology Council: The Cybersecurity Implications Of ChatGPT And Third Wave Generative AI Models

Although generative models have been in development for some time, ChatGPT’s public release has raised important questions about the nature of these models, their potential impact, and their role in fields like cybersecurity. To understand their significance, Dr. Mezic explores the history and development of AI, distinguishes between the different waves of AI technology, and ultimately the implications for cybersecurity.
