AI Cyber Day Agenda

New for 2024, AI Cyber Day will focus on the global development of cybersecurity certification frameworks tailored specifically for AI systems. Both the EU and the US are actively developing regulatory frameworks that will establish a set of common criteria, methodologies, and evaluation processes to assess the security and resilience of data products that incorporate AI technologies. AI Cyber Day will bring you up to date on efforts to develop these frameworks, the outlook for future regulation, and best practices to mitigate cybersecurity risks and insure compliance throughout the AI lifecycle.
