Monitoring and Auditing LLM Interactions for Security Breaches

Monitoring and auditing are critical components of cybersecurity, designed to detect and prevent malicious activities. Monitoring involves real-time observation of system activities, while auditing entails a systematic review of logs and interactions. Large Language Models (LLMs), such as GPT-4, are increasingly integrated into various applications, making them attractive targets for cyber threats.

Secure API Management for LLM-Based Services

API Management is a comprehensive process that involves creating, publishing, documenting, and overseeing application programming interfaces (APIs) in a secure, scalable environment. APIs are the backbone of modern software architecture, enabling interoperability and seamless functionality across diverse applications. They facilitate the integration of different software components, allowing them to intercommunicate and share data efficiently.

Protecto - AI Regulations and Governance Monthly Update - June 2024

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced the launch of Assessing Risks and Impacts of AI (ARIA), a groundbreaking evaluation program to guarantee the secure and trustworthy deployment of artificial intelligence. Spearheaded by Reva Schwartz, ARIA is designed to integrate human interaction into AI evaluation, covering three crucial levels: model testing, red-teaming, and field testing.

When to Use Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) vs. Fine-tuning for LLMs

Developers often use two prominent techniques for enhancing the performance of large language models (LLMs) are Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) and fine-tuning. Understanding when to use one over the other is crucial for maximizing efficiency and effectiveness in various applications. This blog explores the circumstances under which each method shines and highlights one key advantage of each approach.

How to Compare the Effectiveness of PII Scanning and Masking Models

When evaluating models or products for their ability to scan and mask Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in your data, it's crucial to follow a systematic approach. Let’s assume you have a dataset with 1,000,000 rows, and you want to scan and mask each row.

Understanding LLM Evaluation Metrics for Better RAG Performance

In the evolving landscape of artificial intelligence, Large Language Models (LLMs) have emerged as pivotal technology, driving advancements in natural language processing and generation. LLMs are critical in various applications, including chatbots, translation services, and content creation. One powerful application of LLMs is in Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG), where the model retrieves relevant documents before generating responses.

Integrating Zero Trust Security Models with LLM Operations

Zero Trust Security Models are a cybersecurity paradigm that assumes no entity, whether inside or outside the network, can be trusted by default. This model functions on the principle of "never trust, always verify," meaning every access request must be authenticated and authorized regardless of origin.

Adversarial Robustness in LLMs: Defending Against Malicious Inputs

Large Language Models (LLMs) are advanced artificial intelligence systems that understand and generate human language. These models, such as GPT-4, are built on deep learning architectures and trained on vast datasets, enabling them to perform various tasks, including text completion, translation, summarization, and more. Their ability to generate coherent and contextually relevant text has made them invaluable in the healthcare, finance, customer service, and entertainment industries.

AI Regulations and Governance Monthly AI Update

In an era of unprecedented advancements in AI, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released its "strategic vision for AI," focusing on three primary goals: advancing the science of AI safety, demonstrating and disseminating AI safety practices, and supporting institutions and communities in AI safety coordination.

Data Anonymization Techniques for Secure LLM Utilization

Data anonymization is transforming data to prevent the identification of individuals while conserving the data's utility. This technique is crucial for protecting sensitive information, securing compliance with privacy regulations, and upholding user trust. In the context of LLMs, anonymization is essential to protect the vast amounts of personal data these models often process, ensuring they can be utilized without compromising individual privacy.
