The AI paradox: A blessing or a curse?

About the 2024 PwC Cybersecurity & Privacy Day

Get ready for an exclusive event where cybersecurity and privacy take center stage.

The PwC Cybersecurity and Privacy Day mission is to help CISOs, DPOs and CEOs ensure they keep their organisation secure in a digital society.

The theme of the 2024 edition will focus on the topic of The AI paradox: a blessing or a curse.

The exceptional capabilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have the potential to revolutionize cybersecurity. However, it is crucial to safeguard AI systems themselves from attacks to prevent harm to individuals, processes, and technology.

Although various forms of AI have been in existence since the 1950s, the technology is now experiencing rapid expansion on a larger scale for two key reasons: the availability of more powerful and affordable computer chips, enabling organizations of all sizes to access AI, and the exponential growth in digital data that serves as the foundation for training AI systems.

AI applications are ubiquitous in our daily lives, ranging from email spam filters to virtual assistants. However, with the increasing digitization, the risk of malicious actors gaining access to connected devices or systems grows, elevating AI to a crucial domain in cybersecurity. AI's ability to efficiently scan vast amounts of data for anomalies and identify risks positions it as a transformative force in cybersecurity.

When we look at the Luxembourg cut of the 26th Annual Global CEO Survey, it is encouraging to see that 67% of Luxembourg CEOs continue to consider the deployment of advanced technology - such as cloud computing and AI - as a strategic investment. At the same time, cyber threats still loom large on CEOs’ minds, with 28% and 32% of Luxembourg CEOs considering cyber risks as a key threat for the next year and the next 5 years respectively, and this will only increase in the future.

In the meantime, CISOs are facing an unlimited number of various attacks and risks everyday including challenges in securing AI implementations due to the expanded attack surface and the sophistication of AI-driven cyber threats. The absence of standardized security protocols for AI, coupled with concerns about explainability and data privacy, adds complexity to cybersecurity efforts. CISOs must allocate resources effectively, navigate integration with legacy systems, and ensure continuous monitoring to address these challenges and maintain robust cybersecurity in the dynamic landscape of AI technologies.

DPOs see their mission evolve to ensure data security and privacy are respected, in a complex environment. They encounter challenges in overseeing AI systems due to their complexity and lack of transparency, requiring efforts to ensure compliance with data protection principles like minimization and purpose limitation. Addressing issues of automated decision-making, data security, and ethical considerations adds complexity, necessitating continuous monitoring and collaboration with various stakeholders. Staying informed and adapting to the evolving AI landscape is crucial for DPOs to effectively navigate these challenges and maintain regulatory compliance.

The PwC Cybersecurity and Privacy Day mission is to help CISOs, DPOs and CEOs ensure they keep their organisation secure in a digital society.

The 2024 edition will be held physically at PwC Luxembourg's premises, as follows:

For 6 years now, we have organised a dedicated and exclusive session for CEOs, with a tailored agenda to provide them with an in-depth understanding on strategic challenges around cybersecurity and privacy.
