The Use of AI Technology Supports National Security Initiatives

Clark Anderson, Presidio Federal Security Solutions Architect, recently spoke as part of the GovernmentCIO AI National Security series, providing an industry perspective. His remarks covered the potential threats from artificial intelligence to information systems. He highlighted the coming threats to keeping data confidential (especially with legacy systems)  and the relentless and well-funded attempts by hackers to infiltrate and access data. Integrity of communications can also be distorted to an adversary’s advantage with Deepfake tools. Not surprisingly, the same AI techniques used to penetrate government information systems can also be used to degrade and disrupt accessibility to mission critical systems.
