Generative AI in the Middle East: Navigating security and governance with new solutions


A recent report by MIT Sloan Management Review titled “The State of Generative AI in the Middle East” reveals that 72% of executives from companies in the region are utilizing generative AI tools within their organizations. An additional 21% are contemplating their adoption, underscoring the growing interest in this technology. However, the enthusiasm is tempered by significant hurdles, with 64.7% of respondents identifying the lack of governance as a major barrier to the adoption of generative AI technologies.

To address these concerns, CalypsoAI has introduced its Moderator solution, a model-agnostic platform designed to bolster security and governance within enterprises. Moderator provides organizations with the tools needed to gain visibility into the usage of models and to implement specific controls and parameters to mitigate risks. This includes blocking prompt-driven techniques such as role-playing and reverse psychology, which could potentially compromise sensitive data. By preventing unauthorized access to large language models (LLMs), Moderator plays a crucial role in securing an organization’s digital ecosystem against threat actors.

With a focus on custom-made policies and tailored use cases, Deloitte Middle East and CalypsoAI aim to deliver solutions that blend innovation with security, ensuring that every use case of AI is secure.
