This book extensively explores the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the risk mitigation process and provides information for auditing, banking, and financial sectors on how to reduce risk and enhance effective reliability. The applications of the financial industry incorporate vast volumes of structured and unstructured data to gain insight into the financial and non-financial performance of companies. As a result of exponentially increasing data, auditors and management professionals need to enhance processing capabilities while maintaining the effectiveness and reliability of the risk mitigation process. The risk mitigation and audit procedures are processes involving the progression of activities to "transform inputs into output." As Artificial Intelligence systems continue to grow mainstream, it is difficult to imagine an aspect of risk mitigation in the financial industry that will not require AI-related assurance or AI-assisted advisory services. AI can be used as a strong tool in many ways, like the prevention of fraud, money laundering, and cybercrime, detection of risks and probability of NPAs at early stages, sound lending, etc. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of risk management in the financial sector using Deep Learning, Machine Learning algorithms, and Natural Language Processing (NLP). These methods can be used to ascertain the existence of potential threats, unearth fraudulent activities, and provide predictive analytics that are helpful in making decisions. The application of Artificial Intelligence to risk management has the potential to significantly improve decision-making and to reduce risks and raise overall financial stability.

This book provides cybersecurity practitioners with the knowledge needed to understand the risks of the increased availability of powerful large language models (LLMs) and how they can be mitigated. It attempts to outrun the malicious attackers by anticipating what they could do. It also alerts LLM developers to understand their work's risks for cybersecurity and provides them with tools to mitigate those risks. The book starts in Part I with a general introduction to LLMs and their main application areas. Part II collects a description of the most salient threats LLMs represent in cybersecurity, be they as tools for cybercriminals or as novel attack surfaces if integrated into existing software. Part III focuses on attempting to forecast the exposure and the development of technologies and science underpinning LLMs, as well as macro levers available to regulators to further cybersecurity in the age of LLMs. Eventually, in Part IV, mitigation techniques that should allow safe and secure development and deployment of LLMs are presented. The book concludes with two final chapters in Part V, one speculating what a secure design and integration of LLMs from first principles would look like and the other presenting a summary of the duality of LLMs in cyber-security. While the general public discovered Large Language Models (LLMs) with ChatGPT—a generative autoregressive model, they are far from the only models in the LLM family. Various architectures and training regiments optimized for specific usages were designed throughout their development, which were then classified as different LLM families.
