US, UK Issue Joint Guidance for Secure Development of AI Systems
The United States and the United Kingdom continue to work hand-in-hand to ensure the secure development of artificial intelligence systems amid cybersecurity concerns.
On Sunday, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the U.K. National Cyber Security Centre released “Guidelines for Secure AI System Development,” a document for professionals to guide them through every stage of AI development. The document marks the latest partnership between the nations in tackling AI.
The guide encompasses four key areas in AI development: secure design, secure development, secure deployment and secure operation and maintenance, with each section offering help to ensure top-notch cybersecurity in any organization, DHS said.
While AI has been seeing rapid development in recent years, the U.S. federal government has taken measures to ensure that the new technology remains safe for everyone. In October, President Joe Biden issued an executive order for the safe and secure use of AI, protecting Americans from threats it brings to their privacy and civil rights.
The Biden-Harris administration is also partnering with the British government to place guardrails on AI development, sharing best practices and collaborate on research opportunities.
