The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Industry Specification Group on Securing Artificial Intelligence (ISG SAI) appointed Alex Leadbeater from British Telecom (BT) as its chair. Kate Reed with the National Cybersecurity Center (NCSC) was appointed first vice chair, and Tieyan Li from Huawei was appointed second vice chair.

The group launched in October to develop technical specifications to mitigate threats arising from the deployment of AI throughout multiple industries. The group will work on securing AI from attack, mitigating against malicious AI and using AI to enhance security measures. The purpose of the ETSI ISG SAI is to develop the technical knowledge that acts as a baseline in ensuring that artificial intelligence is secure.

“I am delighted to be appointed as the chairman for this exciting new group,” said Leadbeater. “Ensuring the security of artificial intelligence is a vital topic that affects many stakeholders, and I look forward to seeing what work the group produces as it begins its work program in earnest.”

The group will create an AI threat ontology report to align terminology, a problem statement to guide the group’s work, a data supply chain report summarizing the methods used and risks associated with sourcing data for training AI, a mitigation strategy report with guidance to mitigate the impact of AI threats and security testing of AI.

The group’s next meeting will be held in Sophia Antipolis, France, 2 – 3 April.
