The capabilities of generative artificial intelligence (AI) could completely transform our healthcare system as we know it. For better or for worse, the technology advancements in healthcare are rapidly growing. Given the accelerated rollout, experts have yet to predict all the risks associated with such high-functioning computations in the healthcare system. Even though the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates software being used as medical devices (SaMD), there is an overall lack of urgency, agency oversight, and sufficient regulations to tame AI technology in the healthcare system.
As artificial intelligence becomes more available, apprehension regarding its potential impact on security and data protection grows, especially within the financial services sector. AI technology undoubtedly provides some benefits to the financial sector by offering services that would otherwise be unwieldy, inefficient, time-consuming, and costly when undertaken by humans. The financial services sector is no stranger to security risks and with the increased prevalence of AI, the threat landscape grows larger, especially when considering the financial sector’s increasing dependence on web applications and APIs.
