A recent report on cybersecurity and generative AI made an extraordinary claim: 75% of the information security professionals surveyed witnessed an increase in cyber-related attacks over the prior 12 months, and 85% attributed that increase to attackers using AI. If this is true, it represents a sea change in the cyber threat landscape and raises some critical questions about how we respond to it. In this presentation, we will review examples of AI-enabled threat vectors, evolving attacks on AI systems, and the different approaches taken to combat them by the United States and the European Union.

Takeaways include:

    • Attack types that leverage AI as well as unique threats to AI systems
    • Defending against AI-powered attacks and protecting the integrity of AI systems
    • A comparison of the proposed EU AI Act with the White House Executive Order on AI
