DHS Releases New Guidelines for Securing Critical Infrastructure

The US Department of Homeland Security has released new resources to help address threats posed by AI, including guidelines to mitigate AI risks to critical infrastructure (

"AI can present transformative solutions for US critical infrastructure, and it also carries the risk of making those systems vulnerable in new ways to critical failures, physical attacks, and cyber attacks. Our department is taking steps to identify and mitigate those threats," said Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

DHS outlines a four-part mitigation strategy, involving the following steps:

  • Govern: Establish an organizational culture of AI risk management – build organizational structures that prioritize security.
  • Map: Understand your individual AI use context and risk profile.
  • Measure: Develop systems to assess, analyze, and track AI risks – identify repeatable methods and metrics for measuring and monitoring AI risks and impacts.
  • Manage: Prioritize and act upon AI risks to safety and security – implement controls to maximize the benefits of AI systems while decreasing harmful impacts.
