Statement Response
Organizations are sufficiently expanding risk management capabilities to address AI-related risks. Disagree “There is a far greater awareness right now regarding AI-related risks, but that awareness has not effectively led to sufficient risk management capabilities in most organizations. AI, in particular generative AI, can have a tendency to paralyze appropriate risk responses because it is often viewed through a mystical newness lens rather than as a new technology that poses classic dilemmas around copyright, data protection, and false advertising.”
