AISA Webinar: New World Threat: ChatGPT & AI

Hosted by the AISA Cloud Branch, please join Gabe Marzano, Cyber Security Evangelist and Alex Nehmy, Director Industry 4.0 at Palo Alto Networks, for an online presentation discussing New World Threats: ChatGPT and AI.



New World Threats: ChatGPT & AI
ChatGPT has exploded in popularity since its release in November 2022. Whilst providing exciting opportunities for the future, ChatGPT also poses significant new risks when leveraged by cyber criminals. In this session, we will explore the threat actors and use cases behind ChatGPT, including malware development, social engineering, disinformation, phishing, malvertising and money-making schemes

We will explore what ChatGPT & AI means from an infosec perspective:

  • How ChatGPT is transforming how we work, study, and play.
  • Pros and cons for cyber security and how to address the challenges.
  • How to achieve trust, transparency and accountability.
  • The role of cyber education to tackle new risks.

Gabe and Alex take us on a journey of future possibilities provided by AI, whilst exploring the necessary risk mitigation considerations required to defend against the malicious use of ChatGPT in 2023.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker. This session will be recorded and the recording will be made available to all registrants.
