Cybersecurity agencies worldwide have collaborated to establish security principles for AI, focusing on design, development, deployment, operations, and maintenance. The Council Presidency and the European Parliament reached an agreement on the AI Law. They proposed harmonized rules to guarantee the safety and adherence to EU values of AI systems within the EU market.
The guidance outlines safety mechanisms, offering a blueprint for effective control and regulation of AI. This potentially extends its application to areas such as supply chain security, threat modeling, and comprehensive documentation.
While AI has been exploited for cybercrime, particularly in smaller-scale incidents, major hacks of large institutions have yet to fully leverage its capabilities. In the dual nature of any new technology, AI stands poised to both detect attacks and fortify networks/companies. With its unparalleled efficiency in correlating extensive datasets, AI has the potential to emerge as a potent ally, significantly enhancing cybersecurity capabilities beyond human capacity.
