Findings from a survey of more than 1,100 cyber professionals include their feelings about how AI has affected cybersecurity and their jobs and what they're looking for in AI regulations.

Remarkably, only 27% of organizations have established formal policies concerning the safe and ethical use of AI, underscoring the need for greater attention to ethical considerations and regulatory frameworks in the deployment of AI technologies within cybersecurity contexts.

Clar Rosso, CEO of ISC2, stressed the importance of taking concrete steps, such as providing AI governance for application development and intellectual property safeguards. "My advice, really, to business leaders would be: Start somewhere," she said.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Rosso discussed:

  • Highlights from the ISC2 survey on the impact of AI;
  • Technical skills essential for cybersecurity professionals to effectively harness AI technologies;
  • How cybersecurity professionals can stay abreast of the latest advancements in AI technologies.

Rosso is responsible for the strategic direction and management of ISC2. She has more than two decades of experience helping global professional associations and certifying bodies grow and strengthen member value.
