The Australian Signals Directorate’s Australian Cyber Security Centre has issued a new guidebook for businesses on the safe use of artificial intelligence. The international intelligence community contributed to the publication, titled “Engaging with Artificial Intelligence,” ASD said in announcing its release.
The ACSC drew input from up to 10 international partners, including the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the FBI and the National Security Agency in the United States, according to the Australian website Cyber Daily.
The guidebook suggests securing AI systems using strategie focused on assessing patch applications and operating systems, application control and administrative privileges.
It also urges businesses to look at how AI platforms will affect their privacy and data protection and examine the security design of the AI services in their supply chain. It further underscores the value of hiring staff qualified in digital system security.
The new guidelines follow the Business Continuity in a Box guidance that the ASCS and CISA jointly issued in November for businesses to use to recover from a cyberattack.
