The report describes the standardization landscape covering artificial intelligence by depicting the activities of the leading Standards-Developing Organisations that seem to be guided by concern about insufficient knowledge of applying existing techniques to counter threats and vulnerabilities arising from AI.

The report argues that existing general-purpose technical and organizational standards, such as ISO-IEC 27001 and ISO-IEC 9001, can contribute to mitigating some of the risks faced by AI with the help of specific guidance on how they can be applied in an AI context.
The report also looks beyond the mere protection of assets, as cybersecurity can be considered instrumental to the correct implementation of the trustworthiness features of AI.
