The management of AI systems is a shared responsibility. By implementing the ISO 31000 Framework and complying with emerging regulations like the EU ACT, we can jointly create a more reliable, secure,  and trustworthy AI ecosystem.

Amongst others, the webinar covers:

-Understanding AI and the regulatory landscape
-AI and the threat landscape
-A risk driven approach to AI assurance - based on ISO 31000 principles
-Stress testing to evaluate risk exposure
