It’s no secret that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is currently revolutionizing every industry, and that includes cybersecurity. However, this revolution can produce some unwanted outcomes, such as hijacking by unscrupulous and malicious Generative AI models. For instance, when ChatGPT was first introduced in 2022, it took the world by storm. Since then, we have seen replicas of ChatGPT introduced on the dark web to facilitate a new era of highly malicious and AI-driven attacks.

Now given the advancements of Generative AI, attacks are being deployed within the speed of seconds and minutes – not days or weeks – which is far beyond human capacity to detect and respond to. In fact, according to Secureworks Counter Threat Unit cybercriminals are deploying ransomware within a day from the initial point of infiltrating an organization. This time has dropped significantly in 2023 down from 4.5 days in 2022 and 5.5 days the year before that.
