The leading question around the Cybersecurity community has been, "Will ChatGPT and OpenAI change Cybersecurity?"
It's a great question, as those technologies are far more advanced than most of us expected them to be at this point in time. The answer is, "We aren't entirely sure, but we have an idea."
Even asking ChatGPT for the answer is met with some ambiguity.
"It is possible that ChatGPT or similar language models may be used in the field of cybersecurity in the future. For example, they could potentially be used to generate more realistic and diverse phishing or malware attacks, or to assist in analyzing large volumes of text-based data such as logs or email communications. However, it's important to note that these models are not inherently malicious and their use in cybersecurity would depend on how they are implemented and controlled by organizations."
Anyone that has spent time around machine learning or data modeling will agree that all data used to build those models is historical, because that's how data works. You can't collect it until it has happened. This understanding helps frame up the possibilities around the potential of ChatGPT and OpenAI.
Created predictions aren't binary, meaning a "yes" or a "no", but made in "varying degrees of confidence".
So, knowing that it can't do all of the things, let's look at some of the things that it can, and often, won't do.
Also, it can build defenses.
As we continue the conversation around ChatGPT and the potential impacts it might have, let's not lose focus on the positives of this incredible innovation. As shown above, ChatGPT currently provides more positive impact than negative.
