For the last 18 months, the AI realm has been expanding at blazing speeds, revolutionizing enterprises across all market sectors. This growth, however, is not without its challenges. As AI brings about productivity enhancements and innovation, it also opens the door to new threats, particularly those from criminal enterprises adept at weaponizing technology.

Systematic Threats in the AI Ecosystem

The swift adoption of large language models (LLMs) and the evolution of natural language-to-code applications mark a significant shift in the AI ecosystem. These technologies enable users with minimal coding experience to create models and applications, potentially driving functions as varied as smartphone virtual assistants and industrial control systems. While these developments herald a new era of efficiency and capability, they also expand the attack surface for potential adversaries.

The Double-Edged Sword of AI Reliance

Our increasing reliance on AI models for decision-making and automated functions turns these systems into attractive targets for attackers. A recent paper by the UK National Cyber Security Centre warns that by 2025, GenAI will likely amplify existing risks, escalating the speed and scale of threats. GenAI’s accessibility means that virtually anyone could become a threat actor, intentionally or inadvertently.

The Spectrum of Human Threats

The range of potential attackers in the AI landscape is broad—from inexperienced individuals experimenting with LLMs to sophisticated, state-sponsored cybercrime groups. Regardless of their skill level, these actors can inflict significant damage by introducing malicious code into systems or executing adversarial attacks on the models themselves, compromising organizational security.

Preparing for External Threats

No organization is immune to these external threats. From infrastructure facilities and financial institutions to social networks and government bodies, the risk of cybercrime looms large. Despite this, many organizations maintain a surprisingly casual stance toward AI security, underestimating the potential for breaches and the necessity of proactive defense measures.
