The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF) will host a discussion on the European Commission´s initiatives in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and cybersecurity in Brussels on Sept. 26. The event will explore how AI can help Europe secure its systems and the steps the region should take to build more secure AI.
The European Commission is currently carrying out a series of cybersecurity initiatives in order to improve awareness and Member State response to cybersecurity threats. At the same time, it is also working on its AI strategy to ensure Europe´s competitiveness in the technology´s development and use.
According to ITIF, integrating EU initiatives in both areas presents an opportunity to increase their strength and effectiveness. It uses the role of AI in cybersecurity as an example. AI creates new cybersecurity vulnerabilities that can exploited by attackers and provides criminals with new ways to carry out cyber attacks.
On the other hand, AI can be a powerful tool to automate cyber defenses and can help the EU discover unknown cyber vulnerabilities and help the region fortify its defenses in light of the shortage of human workers available to address these challenges.
