Statement Response
Organizations are sufficiently expanding risk management capabilities to address AI-related risks. Agree “New technology can promise unbound potential, but it needs to happen with a strong governance model so we can assess and address risks appropriately. As we see and implement emerging technologies like AI, it is our responsibility to ensure that we embed privacy and security throughout, with accountability and integrity. In my work at the Center for Inclusive Growth and Mastercard, we hold ourselves to the highest standards around data and tech responsibility and are working with partners, regulators, and policy makers to inform a broader common framework for responsible data-driven innovation. We have robust privacy, security, and AI governance programs in place but are also iterating to ensure that we meet the shifting challenges of the potential misuse of data. One example of that is that we implemented additional senior executive oversight on all proposed generative AI use cases to ensure that the data is handled responsibly and ethically.”
