UK and US develop new global guidelines for AI security

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) of Great Britain published a first-of-its-kind guidance document on the secure development of artificial intelligence systems. The document was written in consultation with experts from around the world, including representatives of the Israel National Cyber Directorate.

The field of artificial intelligence is advancing at a rapid pace and is expected to be integrated in the near future into a variety of systems and applications in all areas of life. While the field is expected to advance and enhance many capabilities, it also harbors a variety of technological risks, including cybersecurity risks and data exposure.

The purpose of the document published today is to serve as a guide for developers and providers of applications that incorporate artificial intelligence capabilities so that these developments will meet a high standard of cyber protection and be more resistant to vulnerabilities in this area. The writing of the document was led by UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a part of GCHQ, and the US’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and in collaboration with the Israel National Cyber Directorate, as well as other leading cyber organizations in the world. The guide is also intended for users of AI systems so that they can make informed decisions about the use of applications and is soon expected to be translated into Hebrew.
