    Generative AI, and specifically ChatGPT, has taken over the conversation in recent months. The productivity increase it enables for financial services organizations is astonishing—ensuring compliance with regulations, detecting potential fraud, analyzing investment portfolios, and more.

    But in the same way that it helps financial services employees do their jobs more efficiently, it can also be used by cybercriminals to run more effective scams. An increase in attacks brought on by generative AI tools means only one thing: our security solutions must be more effective to keep our employees, customers, and brand safe.

    Join us for this session where our panelists will discuss:

    • The pros and cons of generative AI tools like ChatGPT
    • How generative AI is changing the attack landscape
    • How cybersecurity must evolve in response to AI-created attacks
    • And what security leaders must do to protect their companies from these threats

    With key insights from security leaders and machine learning experts, this session will give you insight into what you need to know about ChatGPT, both now and in the future.

    Threat methods and controls utilized for the corporate workforce that now expands beyond the office building and into remote locations is not as comprehensive and effective for those who are typically in the office. The intent of employees may not be malicious but rather inherent to poor practices; however, there are those who happen to begin unintentional but gradually become the intentional insider threat.

    “The pace of technological change has been accelerating at an unprecedented rate over the past few decades” (at least, according to ChatGPT). This creates a continuing stream of opportunities, and also causes considerable less-desirable disruption. Technology is about what “can be done”, whereas ethics are what “should be done”. This talk discusses our responsibilities viewed through the lens of providers, practitioners, users, and the US legal system.

    Let’s be honest: people can frustrate us. They don’t always do the things we’d like, and they often do some things we’d rather they didn’t. New research from the National Cybersecurity Alliance reveals insights about the public’s attitudes and beliefs about security.  We’ll explore the 2022 “Oh Behave! Cybersecurity Attitudes and Behaviors Report,” and some of the findings may surprise you! We’ll also give you practical, actionable advice on how you can better communicate to influence the behavior change you want to see.
