In the rapidly advancing world of AI, with tools like ChatGPT and Google Bard becoming integral to businesses, keeping your data secure is essential. A recent article in SAF NOW shared key recommendations to ensure the data you’re putting into an AI program is secure. Here are ten important points:
1. Understand How AI Uses Your Data
When you interact with AI models, your data fuels their responses — and that data may be used to train the AI model. Your privacy settings and the nature of the AI tool can affect how your data is used or stored.
2. Know Where Your Data Lives
3. Customize Your Privacy Settings
Most AI platforms offer settings to control how your data is stored and protected. Take the time to understand and adjust these settings for optimal data security.
4. Secure Your Data Transmissions
Ensure that your connection to the AI platform is secure. This is shown by “https” and a padlock symbol in your browser’s address bar, signifying that the data exchange is encrypted.
5. Regularly Update Your AI Tools
AI platforms need updates to fix security vulnerabilities. Using the latest version of your AI software is vital to keeping your data safe.
6. Be Cautious with Sensitive Data
Avoid sharing personal, sensitive, or confidential information. If you need to use AI for sensitive data, consider setting up a private, secure version of the AI tool.
7. Choose Trustworthy AI Providers
Not all AI platforms are equal in their commitment to data privacy. Use providers with a strong track record of data security practices.
We hope this information will give you some peace of mind regarding AI security. Put these 7 points into practice, and you’ll be able to use AI as the incredible tool it is. If you need more assistance or information on AI security, don’t hesitate to contact us.
