CERIAS Security Seminar: On Security Operations for AI Systems

The Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security
February 14, 2024
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Jonathan (Jono) Spring
Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)


We must be methodical and intentional about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are designed, developed, deployed, and operationalized, particularly in critical infrastructure contexts. CISA, the UK-NCSC, and our partners advocate a secure by design approach where security is a core requirement and integral to the development of AI systems from the outset, and throughout their lifecycle, to build wider trust that AI is safe and secure to use. This talk will focus on challenges and opportunities in the secure deployment, operation, and maintenance of AI software systems. The talk will use publications on the practice of coordinated vulnerability disclosure as a motivating example.


Dr. Jonathan Spring is a cybersecurity specialist in the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. Working within the Cybersecurity Division's Vulnerability Management Office, his area of focus includes researching and producing reliable evidence to support effective cybersecurity policies at various levels of vulnerability management, machine learning, and threat intelligence.

Prior to joining CISA, Jonathan held positions in the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) division of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University and was adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh's School of Information Sciences.

The weekly security seminar has been held every semester since spring of 1992. We invite personnel at Purdue and visitors from outside to present on topics of particular interest to them in the areas of computer and network security, computer crime investigation, information warfare, information ethics, public policy for computing and security, the computing "underground," and other related topics.
