Crossword fills in the spaces for AI security services

AIM-listed Crossword Cybersecurity has launched its new CyberAI services practice. The practice, which sits within Crossword’s consulting business, consolidates Crossword’s artificial intelligence (AI) expertise into a centre of excellence.

It will deliver AI-focused cyber security consulting services and products.

“While AI has a huge role to play in improving security posture, customer experience, identifying insights and streamlining business processes, the pace of change, regulation, deployment by employees of ‘shadow AI’, and ‘AI washing’ by marketers, can leave cyber security teams struggling to remain current,” said the firm.

LLMs (large language models) have led to the emergence of many new tools, which must be assessed and assured so that adoption is controlled and does not pose legal, reputational, or commercial threats. Simultaneously, LLMs have empowered would-be attackers by lowering the barriers to launching successful attacks.

The CyberAI Practice will provide organisations with advisory, security testing and engineering services, which will allow organisations to manage AI threats and help grasp the opportunities to improve efficiency, cyber security, and create new experiences for end users, the firm said.

James Henry, consulting innovation director at Crossword Cybersecurity, said: “The latest wave of AI technologies hit the security industry with such pace that many businesses have been struggling to keep up. 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.”
