The rapid pace of change in AI makes it difficult to weigh the technology’s risks and benefits and CISOs should not wait to take charge of the situation. Risks range from prompt injection attacks, data leakage, and governance and compliance.

If market research is any indication of where the use of AI is going, CISOs can expect 70% of organizations to explore generative AI driven by the use of ChatGPT. Nearly all business leaders say their company is prioritizing at least one initiative related to AI systems in the near term, according to a May PricewaterhouseCoopers’ report.
