Generative AI technology [2], such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT, has significantly influenced the cybersecurity landscape, sparking discussions on AI-driven advancements.


Infosecurity Europe 2024 will showcase a keynote presentation by Henry Ajder [1] [2], a renowned generative AI presenter and deepfake expert [1] [2], exploring the intersection of AI technology and cybersecurity [2]. Ajder underscores the pivotal role of AI in threat and defense innovation, underscoring the importance of grasping the opportunities and challenges that arise from integrating AI into cybersecurity [2]. Tope Olufon [1] [2], Senior Analyst at Forrester [2], will join Ajder for a fireside chat session, delving into the industry’s sensationalism and speculation surrounding AI overload [2]. While concerns have been raised about AI potentially fueling more cyber attacks, many organizations are planning to incorporate AI into their cybersecurity strategies within the next year [1]. Despite regulatory and ethical considerations [1], there is a sense of optimism that AI can enhance the skills of cybersecurity professionals and help bridge the industry’s skills gap. Overall, AI is seen as a transformative technology in cybersecurity [1], presenting both risks and benefits [1].


The integration of AI in cybersecurity has brought about significant impacts, prompting the need for careful consideration of risks and benefits. As organizations navigate regulatory and ethical concerns, there is a growing belief that AI can strengthen cybersecurity professionals’ capabilities and address industry skill shortages. Looking ahead, the future implications of AI in cybersecurity are vast, with ongoing efforts to harness its potential while mitigating associated risks.
