Harnessing the power of Generative AI with Crossword’s new CyberAI Practice

Over the past year and a half, the rise in the latest Generative AI technologies, in particular, LLMs, has been staggering. So much so that security leaders have had a new challenge presented to them on how they can use this technology within their organisations.

With the ever evolving threat landscape and proliferation of data and devices, many organisations are adopting AI powered technologies to provide better customer service, enhance decision-making, improve security posture and better analyse and interpret data. The surge in generative AI, such as LLMs, has been recognised as a valuable resource that empowers organisations to implement step change business processes improvements. 

An expertly focused solution

This is why we have launched the CyberAI Practice, which focuses Crossword’s Generative AI expertise into a core service offering, that will deliver expert cybersecurity consulting services and products to help organisations mitigate risk and harness the power of AI.

Over the past few months, we’ve been exploring and workshopping the role of Generative AI within cybersecurity alongside major businesses and leading universities, including academics from Oxford University and MIT in Boston, and AI researchers from the Alan Turing Institute. We’ve identified how to use Generative AI technology is an issue that many companies are grappling with, as they explore how it can create competitive advantage and improve efficiency. 

The launch of the practice is the culmination of these months of research and aims to assist organisations with their AI cybersecurity needs as solutions continue to evolve, along with the threat and opportunity landscape.

“The latest wave of AI technologies hit the security industry with such pace that many businesses have been struggling to keep up." Said James Henry, Consulting Innovation Director at Crossword Cybersecurity, who heads up the CyberAI Practice.  "At Crossword it is our mission to provide businesses with the knowledge and tools needed to securely embrace the benefits of Generative AI technologies whilst also managing the associated risks.”
