Chen and Amir Joined us today to dive deeper into how they integrated generative AI into their threat detection process to significantly increase the speed of detecting breaches based on anomalous activity, lowering operational costs. 

Most of the cloud security market today operates on risk management which means finding the vulnerability, misconfigurations, the correlation between them, but it's all static misconfiguration data where people are trying to reduce their risk and attack service, improving their posture.

In this episode of Cybersecurity Insights, Chen and Amir discuss:

  • How Skyhawk’s Threat Detector feature uses the ChatGPT API;
  • How generative AI is addressing the shortage of skilled cloud security personnel;
  • What the AI arms race means for the future of cloud security, and the broader cybersecurity landscape
