AI cybersecurity: Let’s take some deep breaths

CIS has issued a set of controls designed to provide agencies with a checklist for better security implementations. While there are 20 actions in total, implementing at least the top five -- device inventories, software tracking, security configurations, vulnerability assessments and control of administrative privileges -- can eliminate roughly 85 percent of an organization's vulnerabilities.

All of these practices -- monitoring, user education, patch management and adherence to CIS controls -- can help agencies fortify themselves against even the most sophisticated AI attacks.
