International agreement on AI safety: NRF comment on Bletchley Declaration

Imran Ahmad, Head of Technology and Co-head of Information Governance, Privacy and Cybersecurity for NCCC member Norton Rose Fulbright, echoed the importance of the declaration: "It allows countries to have a framework for their respective jurisdictions, but, more importantly, allows businesses to have more certainty around what standards they should be trying to meet from a best practices standpoint."
