Sophos demonstrates how to make ChatGPT a cybersecurity co-pilot

Sophos, a global leader in innovating and delivering Cybersecurity-as-a-Service (CSaaS), has released new research on how the cybersecurity industry can leverage GPT-3, the language model behind the ChatGPT framework, as a co-pilot to help defeat attackers. 

The latest report, GPT for You and Me: Applying AI Language Processing to Cyber Defenses, details projects developed by Sophos X-Ops using GPT-3’s large language models to simplify the search for malicious activity in datasets from security software, more accurately filter spam and speed up analysis of ‘living off the land’ binary (LOLBin) attacks.

“Since OpenAI unveiled ChatGPT back in November, the security community has largely focused on the potential risks this new technology could bring,” said Sean Gallagher, Principal Threat Researcher, Sophos. “Can the AI help wannabee attackers write malware or help cybercriminals write much more convincing phishing emails? Perhaps, but at Sophos, we’ve long seen AI as an ally rather than an enemy for defenders, making it a cornerstone technology for Sophos, and GPT-3 is no different. The security community should be paying attention not just to the potential risks, but the potential opportunities GPT-3 brings.”
