U.S., U.K., and Global Partners Release Secure AI System Development Guidelines

U.S., U.K., and Global Partners Release Secure AI System Development Guidelines

The U.K. and U.S., along with international partners from 16 other countries, have released new guidelines for the development of secure artificial intelligence (AI) systems.

“The approach prioritizes ownership of security outcomes for customers, embraces radical transparency and accountability, and establishes organizational structures where secure design is a top priority,” the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said.

The goal is to increase cyber security levels of AI and help ensure that the technology is designed, developed, and deployed in a secure manner, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) added.

The guidelines also build upon the U.S. government’s ongoing efforts to manage the risks posed by AI by ensuring that new tools are tested adequately before public release, there are guardrails in place to address societal harms, such as bias and discrimination, and privacy concerns, and setting up robust methods for consumers to identify AI-generated material.

The aim, the agencies noted, is to also combat adversarial attacks targeting AI and machine learning (ML) systems that aim to cause unintended behavior in various ways, including affecting a model’s classification, allowing users to perform unauthorized actions, and extracting sensitive information.

“There are many ways to achieve these effects, such as prompt injection attacks in the large language model (LLM) domain, or deliberately corrupting the training data or user feedback (known as ‘data poisoning’),” NCSC noted.
