TTLDR: CIA CIO: AI Can Help Us Better Combat Future Threats

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize the way cyber threats are mitigated, according to La’Naia Jones, the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). During a recent webinar, Jones explained that AI can help cyber defenders deduce threats rapidly and limit risk factors. By using AI technology, the CIA hopes to prevent attacks before they happen and protect sensitive data and infrastructure. The agency is also exploring the use of AI to gain insights into data located throughout its various operating levels. Jones believes that AI can be used to understand data across different sectors and datasets, regardless of the specific customer or domain. Overall, AI has the potential to create a more robust framework for cybersecurity and improve the CIA’s ability to combat future threats.
