Boehnke participates in task force on artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and privacy

Sen. Matt Boehnke, R-Kennewick, traveled to Quebec City, Canada, on May 17 to participate in a meeting on the National Conference of State Legislatures Task Force on Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity and Privacy.

During the event, participants discussed several topics, including EcoBytes, comparative AI legislation across the border, internet routing security, and the cybersecurity workforce and apprenticeships available in different states.

“Learning from our neighbors across the border is crucial. Increasing our cybersecurity defense posture and learning more about comparative AI legislation allows us to adopt best practices and avoid pitfalls, ensuring that our policies are robust, forward-thinking, and capable of addressing the unique challenges posed by AI,” Boehnke said.
