AI: Friend or Foe?

In the evolving tech landscape, AI is both a benefactor and a bane. AI enhances cybersecurity, data analytics, and operational efficiency by identifying patterns and anomalies in vast datasets. It optimises performance and aids strategic decision-making. However, reliance on AI raises concerns about privacy, job displacement, and misuse of technology.

According to Splunk’s CISO Report, 70% of CISOs believe AI favours cyber adversaries, while 35% use AI for security. The challenge is balancing AI’s opportunities with its risks. Best practices for responsible AI adoption, domain-specific security, and observability use cases are crucial. Understanding AI’s future impact on strategy and digital resilience is essential for navigating this dualistic technology.

  • How can organisations implement responsible AI adoption to maximise benefits while mitigating privacy and ethical risks?
  • What are the most effective domain-specific security and observability use cases for enhancing digital resilience using AI?
  • How should businesses prepare for the future impact of AI on strategic planning and operational efficiency, considering the balance between opportunities and potential risks?
