Advancing AI Security Together: The Mission of OWASP AI Exchange

24 October 2023

Amsterdam, October 24, 2023 – The OWASP® Foundation, with the lead of AI expert Rob van der Veer, has introduced the OWASP AI exchange. This initiative seeks to foster open-source collaboration from experts addressing AI security and the associated regulatory challenges.

Benefiting from Software Improvement Group’s threat model, the OWASP AI exchange provides a space for professionals worldwide to share insights and strategies to mitigate security threats to AI. As a key member of the CEN/CENELEC security working group for the EU AI Act, Van der Veer recognizes the importance of collaborative efforts. “With the rapid evolution of AI, ensuring its security is a shared responsibility. We aim to consolidate expertise and work towards common goals,” states Rob.

This initiative serves as a call to action for AI experts and industry professionals. “We encourage participation: visit the GitHub repository at and contribute to the growing body of knowledge. Every perspective helps in refining our approach,” Van der Veer notes.

The OWASP AI Exchange, using Software Improvement Group’s AI framework, is pivotal to helping secure AI systems and consistently regulate AI threats through feedback and contributions from the global community. By sharing knowledge and best practices, we can help to make AI systems more secure and trustworthy for everyone. – OWASP Foundation

As AI continues to shape industries and influence innovations, it’s essential to prioritize its safe integration into our systems. The OWASP AI exchange exemplifies this commitment by creating a platform for shared knowledge and collaboration – and it will benefit other initiatives such as ISO/IEC 27090, the OWASP ML top 10, the OWASP Top 10 For Large Language Models,, and more.
