Key Information Security Topics

While Hut Six's upcoming tutorial will delve into other aspects of AI and information security, there are two main points upon which to focus:

  1. Unreliable Output.

Whether outputs be purely false, misleading, or simply sub-optimal, it is not uncommon for chatbots to get things wrong.

For the most part, these AI systems are trained on text pulled from the internet, and while efforts have been made to provide human verification and to use reliable sources, inaccurate or imperfect information is unfortunately guaranteed.

Similarly, key information that is necessary to understanding a topic could easily be excluded from an output, just as chatbots may fail to understand certain subtleties about a prompt that could lead to harmful or sub-optimal responses.

These mistakes, known in the world of AI, as 'hallucinations', may be with us for a long time. With some computation linguistics experts suggesting unreliable output "isn't fixable."

  1. Privacy & Data Security.

While there will be some variation between models and companies, input from users is often processed to further train AI models. Meaning, it is possible private and confidential information your employees input could end up being disclosed to other users.

As such, it is vital for your employees not to share information that should be protected or kept confidential - essentially treating chatbots as non-trusted parties.

While this is an evolving area, and OpenAI have in recent months announced an enterprise option, exactly how well AI systems and companies ultimately adhere to data protection and privacy regulations remain to be seen.

Effective & Ongoing Awareness Training

Here at Hut Six, we are always looking to enhance our content library, ensuring that all are customers have all the resources necessary to defend against the evolving landscape of information security threats.

We believe that training should not only be engaging but should provide tangible value to customers, which is why we're always tackling new subjects and evolving threats such as AI.

Ensuring employees are provided with the right training is a vital element in a security aware culture, reducing avoidable human error, and affecting positive behavioural change across your organisation.
