Generative AI: The Good, the Bad and the UglySentinelOne's Aslaner on AI as a Tool for Defenders, Impact on the Threat Landscape
Generative AI, such as the wildly popular ChatGPT tool, is the biggest, buzziest term across the tech community. Cybersecurity defenders are excited about the prospect of using it to simplify coding and other tasks, but they are concerned about the potential security and privacy risk that comes with it.
Some tech firms have already banned ChatGPT from the workplace, but restricting defenders from accessing this new technology could actually give attackers an advantage, warned Milad Aslaner, senior director and global field CISO at SentinelOne.
"As an industry, as defenders, we need to understand how we can leverage new technology the most effective way by not compromising on data, privacy and ethics aspects of it," he said.
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Aslaner also discussed:
- The impact of generative AI on the risk landscape;
- The reliability of ChatGPT's code-writing skills;
- How large enterprises and smaller organizations can adopt this technology.
Aslaner has extensive experience advising global organizations on modernizing their security strategies. He previously held strategic leadership positions at Microsoft, where he successfully launched products, including Microsoft Surface and Microsoft 365 Defender.
