Insights from the experts

“The cyber security space is encountering a rapidly evolving landscape that demands both adaptability and vigilance. The potential to bolster or bypass cyber security measures with AI is transforming the threat landscape, enabling automated attacks to proliferate existing threats more efficiently.

“The key to resilience lies in prioritising security as a critical business investment to protect innovation, and fuel business growth. Every organisation building or consuming AI tech will need AI security and AI governance skilled professionals.”
