Cybersecurity threats are increasingly becoming more frequent, sophisticated, and complex, and companies are struggling to keep up with the pace. With the rise of the internet, the number of attacks has grown exponentially, and attackers are continuously finding new ways to bypass traditional security measures. As a result, the demand for security analysts has increased drastically, however, there is a significant shortage of qualified professionals to fill these positions.

The skills and knowledge gap in the field of cybersecurity is a major issue that has been identified by many organizations around the world. It is estimated that by 2024, there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity positions globally. One of the main reasons for this gap is the lack of educational programs and training opportunities for cybersecurity professionals. Many universities and colleges are not offering enough courses in cybersecurity, and the programs that do exist are often not updated frequently enough to keep up with the fast-evolving field.

Another challenge is the rapid pace of technological change. As new technologies emerge, the threat landscape evolves, and security analysts need to constantly update their skills and knowledge. Unfortunately, many organizations cannot afford to hire and train enough security analysts to keep up with these changes.

Léargas Security is a cybersecurity company that recognizes the importance of closing the cybersecurity analyst skills gap and providing effective training solutions to address this challenge. One of the ways that Léargas Security has been working to increase the efficiency of training newcomers is through the integration of ChatGPT.

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence language model that can generate human-like responses to a wide range of questions and prompts. Léargas Security has been using ChatGPT to create a virtual training assistant that can help cybersecurity newcomers learn and practice their skills in a more efficient and engaging way.

The virtual training assistant powered by ChatGPT can answer questions, provide explanations, and offer guidance on a variety of cybersecurity topics. This includes everything from basic concepts such as networking and encryption, to more advanced topics such as network forensics and threat intelligence.

Using the integrated ChatGPT language model as a virtual training assistant provides several benefits for learners. Providing learners with instant feedback and guidance, helps them learn more effectively. Adapting to the learner’s level of knowledge and skills, makes it suitable for both beginners and advanced learners.

That is why we are proud to announce that Léargas Security has integrated ChatGPT into our platform. This permits an analyst to ask questions around the alerts they are observing and to plan their "next steps".

Léargas Security with ChatGPT can help address these challenges by augmenting the skills and knowledge of your security analysts. Additionally, Léargas Security with ChatGPT can help security analysts stay up to date with the latest threats and best practices, improving their skills and knowledge more quickly.

By leveraging Léargas Security with ChatGPT, Léargas is helping develop the next generation of cybersecurity professionals, enhancing the overall security posture of organizations around the world.
