AI is everywhere, from Chat-GPT to Midjourney – But have you thought about the potential cyber risk in using it?
I recently sat with Jonathan Perry, CTO and Co-Founder of Findings.co to hear a PRO point-of-view. So here are 7 potential cyber risks in using AIs, such as ChatGPT:

ChatGPT and cyber security – Is there a real, actual threat in there or is it just a big fuss that everyone talks about?
I think with regard to Chat GPT, it’s important to remember that the knowledge that ChatGPT gives is based on the sum of all available knowledge and data across the entire web.
And relying blindly on such information can create real security hazards.
So, security experts, and security engineers should not rely on such tools blindly. It’s only an advisory tool. And I think there Is a real threat of ChatGPT and similars.
It’s interesting to mention it because in marketing, we experienced more and more people saying that this is just a tool that is meant to help us create something and not something that’s supposed to be, instead of a marketer of any kind.
Would you agree on the same?
I think it’s really easy to fall into the charm of a chatbot just presenting you on a golden plate whatever you need to do and just follow it,
But that encompasses a real threat.
You don’t know if the output of the data you see is relevant, you don’t know if it’s secure enough.
It’s extremely important not to rely on it blindly.
Can anyone even ensure that ChatGPT is secure? Against these threats or secure at all?
I mean, once you enter something into Chat GPT and ask him to create something, can we even know that this data that you entered is secure enough, in your opinion?
Definitely NOT.. And the reason is it’s an extremely complex data set, unrealistic to think that humans can verify and make sure that the output you see is secure enough, it’s even fit for your purpose.
You don’t know if it even answered the question that you asked him at the first place. So I think common sense and just having the right experience are probably the best answer.
Any Cybersecurity attacks so for, using ChatGPT?
So we haven’t seen any real attack using Chat GPT so far, and I guess the reason is because it’s quite new, but I personally would believe that we will see complex attacks, uses and utilize AI technologies in general, not only ChatGPT, smart attack against industries and corporations. So, yeah, definitely.
How do you see ChatGPT affecting supply chain security?
It’s a good question. So we thought about it a lot here at Findings and I think we will eventually see organizations, companies and others utilizing Chat- GPT and AI in general to address supply chain supply chain questionnaires and to assess their vendors as well.
How do you protect against the risk of supply chain attacks using Chat- GPT or any AI available out there?
Not a specific checklist that you need to do in order to protect against such things; I think the general rule of thumb is just to take precautions, don’t rely on everything that you see and do.
It’s a good rule of thumb to life in general, but I think it definitely applies here in this topic as well.
And last question, out of your extensive experience in cybersecurity,
How do you keep informed? How do you know about new trends? What would be your best tip?
So, blog posts, and articles are a good thing, but I think the best tip I can give regarding staying informed is to have good connections and good networks because the best know-how and the best tips I’ve got, I’ve gotten from good friends from the industry.
I think having a good social and professional network is the best way to stay current.
All right, thank you so much for your time. Thank you. Thank you for watching.
Thank you for watching. And I’ll see you soon on our next video.
