Apart from traditional threats, with the expansion of IoT, we have made a large surface open to cyber threats. Data poisoning is a way to corrupt the AI Systems that influences the AI outcome.
Traditionally, IoT Vendors take very little precaution to protect the devices from cyber-attacks. The protection needs to be built in the code itself as it is not always possible to add an overhead to make the IoT devices secure given the very small size of it. In addition to general Cyber Security measures, we need to monitor AI results continuously to make sure that the system is not poisoned.
With the availability of different tools and services that educate and make employees aware of most of the Cyber-Security threats, I hope we can make everyone a stakeholder in the Cyber security space. While we have an Information Security Team in most of the organizations, it is important to make general awareness mandatory. Periodic testing of cyber security knowledge of the employees is a great way to mitigate cyber security threats.
