ONCD’s Kemba Walden Says National Cyber Strategy Could Curb Generative AI Risks

Kemba Walden, the acting head of the Office of the National Cyber Director, has said the White House’s national cybersecurity strategy can lessen potential harms from generative artificial intelligence, a type of algorithm that can learn from data to produce new content.

Speaking at the Amazon Web Services Summit on June 7, Walden highlighted the plan’s data privacy and security principles as a potential check on reckless development.

Another way that the White House strategy can guide the technology is a focus on “secure-by-design,” which involves shifting the responsibility for software security to makers and suppliers. Walden said enforcing that approach could lead to beneficial changes in an AI’s underlying algorithms.

She noted that the strategy is designed to be applicable to any emerging technology, FCW reported Thursday.

Meanwhile, Jen Easterly, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, has called on AI developers to implement self-regulation measures while the government prepares regulations. She reiterated concerns by experts that the technology could pose an existential threat to humanity.
