AI & Cybersecurity experts can now tie up via AI Security Alliance

  • The organization declares its Board Members and opens working groups and membership for cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence experts.
     
  • The alliance is expected to commence with 6 working groups on immediate topics of interest.

The Artificial Intelligence Security Alliance has reportedly launched its mission membership and working groups with an aim to cut through industry buildup, develop standards and combine AI and cybersecurity analysts here at Black Hat USA. 

Reportedly, the AI Security Alliance emerged due to an urgent need to help consumers and inventors of AI applications accomplish reliable and provable security and privacy. The lack of an essential trust agenda combined with the increasing number of AI use cases and online threats, has brought in a system of leading IT security experts, data scientists and solution providers together to form the organization.

As per the industry experts, the security issues were further recognized in the early results of an survey conducted by the Alliance attempting to understand the current views on security and AI which provided conclusions that almost 46% of the respondents were looking for vendors to display proof-of-adherence to a third party standard or certification for AI related security. 

Kapil Raina, Chairperson of AI Security Alliance was reportedly quoted stating that the interest of people for the membership has increased drastically with the Alliance just being formed. This reflected the key trends of the industry including the fragmentation of standards across different sectors, lack of resources and skills, and risks of AI.

According to the trusted sources, the Alliance is expected to commence with over 6 working groups on the immediate topics of interest. Each group has been claimed to have a concrete plan that can be implemented to action by the members and the industry.

Other members along with Kapil Raina are Ashok Banerjee, Michael Daly, Jenny Menna, Daniel Prieto, Kalyan Veeramachaneni, and Evon Wolff who have been assigned different roles according to their expertise domain.

For the uninitiated, AI Security Alliance is an organization formed to develop best plans for securing the development and use of AI for commercial, government and academic use.
