The global market demand for generative AI is expected to reach $211 billion in 2030, with a high average annual growth rate of 53.3%. *1 In addition, the fields in which generative AI is expected to be introduced include finance, manufacturing,
distribution, medical/nursing care, and communications/broadcasting, and changes that can significantly change people’s lifestyles are expected to occur in all situations. It will be. While the convenience of AI has increased, cyber attacks and information leaks that exploit AI have been on the rise in recent years, and security awareness has increased not only among companies and employees involved in AI business, but also among general consumers.
