As the nation’s cyber defense agency and the national coordinator for critical infrastructure security and resilience, CISA must understand the benefits and risks of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and ensure the nation’s critical infrastructure owners and operators are prepared to both manage the risks while leveraging the benefits.
To that end, CISA has developed a Roadmap for AI, a whole-of-agency plan aligned with national AI strategy, to address our efforts to: promote the beneficial uses of AI to enhance cybersecurity capabilities, ensure AI systems are protected from cyber-based threats, and deter the malicious use of AI capabilities to threaten the critical infrastructure Americans rely on every day.
Taking a significant step forward in addressing the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity, CISA and the United Kingdom’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) jointly released Guidelines for Secure AI System Development, developed in cooperation with 21 other agencies and ministries from across the world – including all members of the Group of 7 major industrial economies on November 27. The Guidelines for Secure AI System Development are the first of their kind to be agreed to globally. They will help developers of any systems that use AI make informed cybersecurity decisions at every stage of the development process.
