Generative AI: Short-term Skepticism, Longer-Term Hope

Generative AI (GenAI) is a double-edged sword in the realm of cybersecurity. As Large Language Model (LLM) applications like ChatGPT and Gemini emerge, security leaders find themselves balancing skepticism and hope. GenAI has cornered security leaders as another challenge to manage all the while providing the ability to harness its capabilities to augment security at an operational level. Here’s why:

Swift Evolution

GenAI is rapidly evolving. While ChatGPT and Gemini are just the beginning, we can expect more disruptive applications. Security teams must prepare for this swift evolution.

Promises and Fatigue

GenAI promises productivity gains and skills gap reductions. However, the reality is more nuanced. Right now, we’re likely to experience prompt fatigue rather than exponential productivity growth. But there’s hope—experiments will improve the technology over time.

Ethical and Secure Use

Security leaders should collaborate proactively with business stakeholders to lay the foundations for GenAI’s ethical, safe, and secure use. It’s essential to recognize that this is only the beginning, and GenAI’s potential extends far beyond our current experiences.

In summary, GenAI presents both challenges and opportunities. While skepticism tempers our expectations, the long-term hope lies in harnessing its capabilities to augment security operations. As we navigate this landscape, managing expectations and fostering collaboration will be key.
