Do you think government regulation will stifle the evolution of AI technology?

Top Answer : It's fascinating when you look at how the AI space is evolving; there are a lot of positives. But the government is really talking about regulation on the ethical side, which scares the heck out of me. You don't want to tamper down the innovation, but it will take us as IT leaders to put some guardrails around it. It's that ethical side of AI as an industry that we have to watch out for. Explainable AI is a newly emerging field that's pushing people to rethink how they'll use the data at every step before they actually get the results. It's a new concept started at MIT that Microsoft and Google have been investing in heavily. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) even has an open-source challenge on explainable AI. Their goal is to make sure that any federal system that uses AI or ML understands exactly what’s involved: What is my input? What happens to my intermediate rates? What happens to the bias? How is the system tracking with the data points and what is it putting out?

How do you manage data access/policy management across cloud and 3rd party applications? Include your favorite vendor in the comments.

Top Answer : IAM is a start, but also need multi-cloud SIEM tools that integrate with cloud providers and IAM. I look at brews of Okta, Sailpoint, Sumo Logic, Splunk, and other tools as we build.

Where should organizations place their focus: ransomware solutions or data recovery?

Top Answer : Ransomware is a big problem but what is everybody doing about it? Sophos released a report that said 51 or 52% of all the companies they surveyed got hit with ransomware. And to make it worse, 80% of those companies got hit again 3 months later, after they basically resolved the issue. I'm sitting on these security conferences all day long on Zoom and all I hear about is, "What's your recovery plan for ransomware?" Why are we talking backups? Why are we talking restores? What if I have to restore petabytes of data? I'm toast. I'll be down for 2 months.

Will the increasing ethical complexities of data protection make it harder for IT to operate at the speed of the business?

Top Answer : When it comes to ethics and how we protect data at the code level, it's a totally different mindset now. I can't move at the speed of the business. Looking at access to the systems solely from the human perspective is just wrong. Last year, our whole cyber defense testing model was all about defending data in the middle of a contaminated container. This year, we're going to continue that concept and add a compromised virtual private network (VPC) layer, plus issues with our API connections from a poorly configured solution.  Ethically, if I'm responsible for being able to track the integrity, availability and confidentiality of the data, I now have to look at it from both the human factor perspective and systems factor perspective. There are very few solutions that understand tracking ethical usage of data from the system identity out to the human being, it's always from a human being in.

Are we on the road to enabling better data protection and privacy regulations for private enterprise organizations?

Top Answer : There is an important legal theory called mosaic theory—if you aren't yet aware of it, I encourage you to go and look up. It’s about using obfuscation to some level to preserve privacy. For example, if you're my carrier, you know exactly where I am, you know where my house is, you know where I do everything. Should that data be made available to anybody else? Mosaic theory says that if you stand far back, you can see a mosaic as a full picture, but if you are close-up and I give you just a tile, like my city, then you’ll know I'm in my city, but you don't get any more than that. Mosaic theory is actually quite well established in law now, and I'd love to see it taken up more as part of a digitally-aware constitution.
