Sherrod DeGrippo on APT groups experimenting with AI; security pros respond to China hacking warnings

When ChatGPT debuted in the fall of 2022, it set the internet ablaze and opened many people’s eyes to the capabilities of a new generation of machine learning technology. It also caught the attention of some of the world’s most sophisticated hackers. For the companies developing leading edge AI models, preventing hackers from misusing them now represents a key challenge. Sherrod DeGrippo is the director of threat intelligence strategy at Microsoft, and on this episode of Safe Mode sits down with host Elias Groll to discuss how state-backed hackers are experimenting with AI tools. CyberScoop reporter Christian Vasquez also joins the show to discuss how industrial cybersecurity experts are responding to Chinese hacking operations targeting critical infrastructure.
