The premise of Moore’s law is that the speed and capability of computers can be expected to double every two years. Unspoken but implied is that new technologies will be introduced at a similar clip – along with new, sometimes unforeseen, challenges.


Cybersecurity professionals know all about Moore’s law. For instance, the past 18 months has brought artificial intelligence (AI) into the mainstream, introducing plenty of both opportunity and risk. The White House released Executive Order 14110 in October 2023 on the “safe, secure, and trustworthy development and use” of AI, followed in March of this year with an Office of Management and Budget memo providing guidance on improving governance and managing the risks of AI.


State governments are not leaving all the heavy lifting to federal agencies on this, however. Almost all states are considering legislation governing AI and protecting their residents from possible harm – but one recent report finds this hodgepodge approach can lead to gaps and confusion and create new risks.


Learning Objectives:

  • Review the types of security risks that utilization of AI may create, for instance, whether spoofing an established identity can be facilitated
  • Outline the availability of tools to assist in cybersecurity measures aimed at addressing AI vulnerabilities
  • Evaluate the recommendations and requirements of federal policies and the most common objectives of proposed state laws and regulations
