The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the United Kingdom’s National Cyber Security Center have released joint guidelines to help developers make informed cybersecurity decisions regarding artificial intelligence.

CISA said in a statement that the guidelines, released Sunday, were formulated in cooperation with 21 other agencies and ministries from around the world, including members of the Group of 7 major industrial economies.

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas said in a statement that the guidelines “provide a commonsense path to designing, developing, deploying and operating AI with cybersecurity at its core.”

The guidelines are broken down into four key areas: secure design, development, deployment, and operation and maintenance.

Guidelines for secure deployment, for instance, are to secure your infrastructure; protect your model continuously; develop incident management procedures; release AI responsibly; and “make it easy for users to do the right things.”

The statement notes that President Biden issued an executive order in October that called for new standards for AI safety and security.
