Description of the event from the UK ICO’s website:
The rise of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) systems has brought exciting new capabilities, but also data protection risks that organisations and their employees need to be aware of. Employees may share commercially sensitive information with a chatbot, not knowing that the model will use this information for further training. There are also concerns about GenAI systems memorising and exposing private personal information used in training. As employees start leveraging GenAI tools for work, organisations will need clear policies on proper use and oversight to ensure personal information is not misused.
This workshop will provide an overview of how the technology works, as well as the data protection issues with using GenAI, while also offering practical guidance on mitigating risks for both organisations and staff. With the right safeguards, organisations can tap into the promise of GenAI while protecting people’s personal information.
