Securing AI and AI for cybersecurity is paramount for our cyber secure future.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an emerging concept facilitating intelligent and automated decision-making and is thus becoming a prerequisite for the deployment of IoT and Industry 4.0 scenarios as well as other application areas. While it is undoubtedly beneficial, one should not ignore the fact that AI and its application to automated decision-making – especially in deployments where safety is critical such as in autonomous vehicles – might open new avenues in manipulation and attack methods, while creating new challenges to privacy.

When considering security in the context of AI, the duality of this interplay needs to be highlighted. On the one hand, one needs to consider that AI can be exploited to manipulate expected outcomes, but on the other hand AI techniques can be used to support security operations and even to decrease adversarial attacks. Before considering using AI as a tool to support cybersecurity, it is essential to understand what needs to be secured and to develop specific security measures to ensure that AI itself is secure and trustworthy.

ENISA is actively working on mapping the AI cybersecurity ecosystem and providing security recommendations for the challenges foreseen.
