According to a study by Forbes Advisory, 97 percent of the business owners surveyed think artificial intelligence (AI) will have a positive impact on their operations.

However, the same study found that 43 percent of respondents worry that employees will become too dependent on AI and 31 percent are concerned about data security and privacy as AI adoption grows.

As more and more organizations implement AI into their tech stacks, it is essential for leadership to develop an AI tool policy to address the ethical and security implications that come with it.

An AI tool policy is a document that defines the purpose, scope, principles, roles, and responsibilities for the development, deployment, and use of AI tools in an organization.

Specific AI tool policies will vary by business and by industry, but the foundation of this document should contain standard information that is applicable to every organization:
• Responsibilities: Define acceptable use and security best practices for employees, contractors, and any other personnel who access the company’s AI tools.
• Monitoring protocols: Inform users how and why the AI tools are being monitored by the company.
• Results of violations: Describe the potential consequences of violating the company’s AI tool policies and how to report violations.
Using an AI tool policy template enables organizations to create consistently formatted policy docs that clearly communicate essential information to users and that can be customized as needed to address company-specific regulations and requirements.

It’s important to note that while an AI tool policy document is a time saver for implementing best practices for AI usage, it is not a legally binding contract. Be sure to consult with stakeholders and legal representatives before distributing and implementing your AI tool policies.
