National Security Powered by AI
America’s intelligence collectors are already using AI in ways big and small, to scan the news for dangerous developments, send alerts to ships about rapidly changing conditions, and speed up the NSA’s regulatory compliance efforts. But before the IC can use AI to its full potential, it must be hardened against attack. The humans who use it — analysts, policy-makers and leaders — must better understand how advanced AI systems reach their conclusions. Defense One, Nextgov and INSA examined how AI could transform national security, government operations and its workforce, as well as broader ethical and societal impacts.
Mitigating the Supply Chain Risk
CISA, ODNI and the DOD are working together to promote the magnitude of supply chain security and risk management. Breaches in the supply chain create an opportunity for malicious software or hardware to be installed on equipment. Lack of awareness or validation of the legitimacy of hardware and software presents a serious threat to users’ information and the overall integrity of a network environment.
Out of Office: Telework Opportunities and Challenges
With the COVID crisis keeping people out of the office and working from home, this webinar focuses on the challenges unique to the intelligence and national security workforce as it pivots to increase and expand the use of telework. The discussion will focus on teleworking at the DOD and the IC during the COVID crisis, including the technology challenges and resources, opportunities to perform classified work in non-traditional environments, cybersecurity risks, and lessons learned as well as addressing the polices, practices, and procedures related to telework.
