ChatGPT – Data Leaks, Cyber Threats and Security
ChatGPT and similar AI models are here to stay. ChatGPT burst onto the cyber landscape in November 2022 and has gone from strength to strength since with a seemingly endless amount of possibilities it is much more than just a fun tool to teach you how to get a peanut butter sandwich out of a VCR. Microsoft, Google, Amazon and many other big name IT companies are investing significant money and resources into this technology and as more and more possibilities become reality the cost savings and consumer user experience is becoming an impossible benefit to ignore. However, while humanity remains preoccupied with the pursuit of what is achievable, we have yet to properly pause and reflect on whether we should proceed, and what the associated risks and hazards may be. Despite significant advancements in AI, we have made only marginal strides in comprehending its technical and ethical risks. AI poses a hugely powerful opportunity but as Spiderman’s Uncle Ben would say with great power comes great responsibility.
