Technical Measures to Mitigate Security Risks

The defense against security risks in AI systems involves a comprehensive approach, combining policy enforcement with technical measures. On the input side, it is crucial to establish stringent controls to inspect, clean, and properly handle data before it feeds into AI models. Techniques to detect or prevent data poisoning attempts are also vital, ensuring that only clean, intended data influences the learning process.

On the output side, the focus shifts to safeguarding AI interactions. This includes monitoring and filtering the prompts and responses between AI systems and users to prevent unauthorized access or manipulation. Implementing security controls, such as LLM (Large Language Models) firewalls, plays a pivotal role in this endeavor, enabling real-time inspection and intervention to ensure that all interactions adhere to governance, security, and privacy standards.

You need to identify vulnerability points in the data flow and implement in-line controls for both model inputs and outputs based on the identified risks. This approach ensures comprehensive security throughout the data’s journey. The following strategies outline essential measures for safeguarding AI systems against a range of vulnerabilities:

  • Data Poisoning Prevention: Secure your training data to prevent malicious actors from injecting harmful information that could manipulate the model’s output.
  • Denial-of-Service (DoS) Protection: Implement safeguards to prevent attackers from overwhelming the AI system with requests, rendering it unavailable for legitimate users.
  • Data Leakage Prevention: Prevent sensitive data from leaking unintentionally through model outputs or user interactions. This might involve techniques like differential privacy or data masking.
  • Permission and Entitlement Controls: Ensure that only authorized users have access to specific data inputs and outputs. Implement role-based access control or similar mechanisms.
