As artificial intelligence (AI) technology is integrated into more industries and business operations, the need for robust governance frameworks grows.

To help customers develop their AI programs in a secure and efficient way, we are introducing support for both the NIST AI Risk Management Framework (RMF) and ISO 42001. These frameworks address the complexities and ethical concerns of AI, mitigating risks and enhancing governance.

What is NIST AI RMF?

The NIST AI Risk Management Framework (AI RMF) is a comprehensive guide designed to help organizations of all sizes and sectors effectively manage the risks associated with AI technologies. This framework offers a set of best practices and strategies that emphasize responsible development, deployment, and monitoring of AI systems.

By adopting the NIST AI RMF, organizations can enhance the trustworthiness of their AI solutions, ensuring they are safe, secure, and fair. This proactive approach not only mitigates potential risks but also maximizes the benefits of AI, enabling businesses to innovate confidently while maintaining alignment with ethical standards and regulatory requirements.

What is ISO 42001?

ISO 42001, developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), is an international standard that provides a structured framework for managing AI systems responsibly and effectively. Designed to address the unique challenges and risks associated with AI technologies, this standard helps organizations of all sizes implement AI with confidence.

By adhering to ISO 42001, companies can ensure that their AI applications are ethical, transparent, and aligned with global best practices, ultimately enhancing trust and reliability among users and stakeholders.
