The recent disclosure of North Korean state actors or APTs using generative AI for malicious cyberattacks underscores the growing trend of offenders adopting AI technology. It is clear now that while defenders can harness AI, offenders are equally adept at exploiting its capabilities. AIShield, a corporate startup under Bosch, was established with the mission to globally secure AI systems.

"A common belief is that the traditional security controls are sufficient. However, organizations may fall short in many cases," said Manojkumar Parmar, founder, CEO and CTO, AIShield.

Nation-states are actively involved in AI-related attacks, focusing on critical regulated industries, semi-regulated industries and critical infrastructure. Parmar pointed out the complexity introduced by the generative AI wave, which expands the attack surface, adding that AI is not the sole solution but one among many.

As AI matures, security becomes a significant concern, reflected in the substantial growth of the AI security market, comprising $115 million in global venture capital investments. Projections indicate a double-digit billion-dollar market in the next 7 to 8 years.

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

  • The rise in misuse of generative AI;
  • The current landscape of AI security;
  • Understanding AI-based threat actors and their attack techniques.

Parmar founded AIShield with a vision to secure global AI systems. Presently, the company safeguards more than 40 organizations and holds 45 patents.
