Making AI Inclusive: 4 Guiding Principles for Ethical Engagement

whitePaper | July 20, 2022

The growing diversity of actors and circumstances involved in AI/ML deployment makes establishing a set of ethical participatory practices especially difficult for this field. Even among practitioners working at the same organization, there can be substantial differences in both their knowledge about how AI/ML systems were created or will be used and their ability to incorporate inclusive practices. Additionally, the greater availability of AI development platforms, including “no-code” platforms, means that algorithmic models can be deployed without having deep expertise, expanding the number of circumstances automated systems are deployed in. This means many more instances where automated systems are being deployed without consideration of how the algorithms were developed, the provenance of the datasets and nature of the bias on which they were trained and tested, and the ethical implications of their development and deployment.

TOP 5 REASONS TO PUT PRIVILEGE FIRST

whitePaper | July 20, 2020

Privileged access is the gateway to an organization’s most valuable assets and is at the core of nearly every major security breach. Organizations must have a strategy in place to manage and monitor privileged access, as well as detect and respond to threats if they’d like to mitigate risk from today’s advanced attacks. Your application stack and infrastructure is likely quite complex and it can be hard to identify which assets are the most sensitive. And there is a never-ending supply of vendors knocking down your door competing for your time and attention. These two realities make it increasingly difficult to identify which security project to tackle next. When thinking about how to prioritize, it is advantageous to take a step back and think about your businesses goals, albeit in a slightly different way: try to envision what you would be looking for if you were an external attacker or malicious insider looking to steal sensitive data, commit Ransomware, or use your infrastructure for illicit cryptomining.
