Statement Response
Organizations are sufficiently expanding risk management capabilities to address AI-related risks. Neither agree nor disagree “The adaptation of risk management capabilities currently appears to be very dependent on the industry sector, often more advanced in very regulated industries such as finance or medtech. In addition, companies are probably better prepared where targeted by AI regulation, such as the upcoming EU AI Act and its respective requirements.”
