The six core elements of Google's SAIF: The principles include: Strengthening the AI ecosystem's security foundations: This includes leveraging "secure-by-default infrastructure" protections to secure AI systems, users, and applications. Organisational expertise needs to be developed to keep up with advancements in AI and adapt infrastructure protections accordingly. Bringing AI into an organisation's "threat universe": Organisations should swiftly detect and respond to AI cyber-incidents by extending threat intelligence to them.
