Earlier this year, the chairman of the UK’s National Cyber Management Centre warned that “a major bank will fail as a result of a cyber attack in 2017.” Scarily, this does not seem so far-fetched. An increasingly connected world and rapid technological innovation is creating broader and more diverse opportunities for cyber attacks. The use of artificial intelligence (‘AI’) by companies to detect and counter such cyber attacks is becoming increasingly commonplace. Andy Lucas, Majdi Silk and Amy O’Shea of Dentons, explore the associated legal issues in using AI for cyber security purposes.
