Beyond the AI hype: Business leaders offer pragmatic perspective

Cybersecurity applications of artificial intelligence (AI) have been used for years for tasks such as anomaly detection or behavioral analysis. But use cases for generative AI and its' parsing of large language models is new and already a valuable technology for cybersecurity professionals, said Santiago Bassett, founder and CEO of Wazuh.

Chris Pierson, CEO and founder of BlackCloak, said generative AI is revolutionary in terms of putting it in the hands of the masses instead of AI being behind closed doors.

"The biggest shift is that every person has the ability to partake in the creation of something using generative AI," Pierson said during a SC Awards winners circle panel.

Wazuh was named 2023 SC Award's Best SIEM Solution by a panel of independent SC Awards judges and BlackCloak earned Best Emerging Technology.

They were joined on the panel by Greg Elin, senior principal engineer and evangelist at RegScale. Elin said the tech world can't put the generative AI genie back in the bottle and its' impact will be profound. The technology has helped users get past what he called "the blank page problem" and will spur huge gains in productivity.
