CSA Official Press Release
Cloud Security Alliance Releases First ChatGPT Guidance Paper and Issues Call for Artificial Intelligence Roadmap Collaboration
RSA Conference (San Francisco) – April 24, 2023 – The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining standards, certifications, and best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment, released Security Implications of ChatGPT, a whitepaper release candidate that provides guidance across four dimensions of concern around this extremely popular Large Language Model. CSA is also issuing a call for collaboration in developing an Artificial Intelligence (AI) roadmap for this next frontier in cybersecurity and cloud computing.
“It is difficult to overstate the impact of the current viral adoption of Artificial Intelligence and its long-term ramifications. The essential characteristics of GPT, Large Language Models, and Machine Learning, combined with pervasive infrastructure to deliver these capabilities as a service, are sure to create large-scale changes quite soon. It is Cloud Security Alliance’s role to provide leadership in securing AI as a Service and demonstrating its ability to significantly improve cybersecurity itself,” said Jim Reavis, CEO and co-founder, Cloud Security Alliance.
The new whitepaper, Security Implications of ChatGPT, provides analysis across four dimensions: How it can benefit cybersecurity, how it can benefit malicious attackers, how ChatGPT might be attacked directly, and guidelines for responsible usage. The paper provides clarity about managing the risks in leveraging ChatGPT, but what may be surprising to some, it also identifies over a dozen specific use cases for improving cybersecurity within an organization.
“It is CSA’s expectation that market adoption of AI will parallel cloud adoption trends and primarily use the cloud delivery model. From the standpoint of a typical enterprise today, they must perform security assurance over a handful of cloud infrastructure providers and thousands of SaaS providers, the latter being the larger pain point. It is incumbent upon us to develop and execute upon a roadmap to extend and/or create new control frameworks, certification capabilities, and research artifacts to smooth the transition to cloud-enabled AI. For this, we seek to mobilize our army of industry volunteers to provide their input on the shape of our AI roadmap,” Reavis added.
