Is your team ready for AI?

Businesses can leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI) to grow, become more efficient, and remain competitive in their market. AI refers to computer systems that can perform tasks that typically require human brains and skills. AI can help computers to adapt to situations and tasks that would normally be associated with and performed by humans. Here are some ways small businesses can use AI to drive growth:

  • Enhanced customer insights: AI can help businesses gain a better understanding of their customers’ needs and preferences, enabling them to create personalized marketing campaigns and improve customer service.

  • Efficient inventory management: AI can help businesses optimise their inventory management by predicting demand and automating the ordering process.

  • Fraud detection and prevention: AI can help businesses detect and prevent fraudulent transactions, reducing the risk of financial loss.

  • Strengthened cybersecurity measures: AI can help businesses identify and respond to potential security threats, protecting sensitive data and information.

  • Automated routine tasks: AI can help small businesses automate routine tasks, freeing up time for employees to focus on more complex and strategic work.

However, businesses should be aware that AI is not a one-size-fits-all solution and should carefully consider their business needs and goals before implementing AI.

How can you prepare your business for AI? 

  • Identify business needs: Businesses should identify areas where AI can be used to improve efficiency, productivity, and customer experience.

  • Assess data quality: AI relies on high-quality data, so businesses should ensure that their data is accurate, complete, and up-to-date.

  • Develop an AI strategy: Businesses should develop a clear strategy for implementing AI, including goals, timelines, and budgets.

  • Invest in employee training: Businesses should invest in employee training to ensure that their workforce has the necessary skills to work with AI.

  • Ensure data privacy and security: Businesses should ensure that their data is secure and that they comply with relevant data privacy regulations.

Is your business secure enough for AI?

It is critical you prepare your business, data and teams for the arrival of AI. Teams are already using AI tools to help with some of their day to day tasks, and every day businesses are implementing AI capabilities into their apps and tools.

A great example of this is Microsoft with their AI product called Co-pilot - These AI capabilities are already getting implemented into all of the MS Office products you and your team use on a daily basis. To learn more about Microsoft Co-pilot you can click here.

The advantages that these AI tools bring your business and teams is a game change, however you need to be prepared for the security risks that come with this technology. 

A lot of the AI tools will need to access data to perform their tasks - If an AI application is implemented across an un-secure environment or a Cloud/Office 365 tenant that has not been correctly secured the risks of a data breach is magnified. If the AI can access data or systems that it should not be allowed to, this data can end up in the wrong hands (internally or externally).

When it comes to security measures, businesses should consider the following:

  • Establish a robust security foundation: Businesses should establish a strong security foundation for AI, drawing parallels with existing threats to software and data.

  • Implement advanced detection mechanisms: Businesses should implement advanced detection mechanisms and response protocols to address potential malicious AI activities.
