Security transformation guru and distinguished Purple Book Community fellow Maria Schwenger brings her expertise on the cybersecurity applications & threats of GenAI to the show. Maria and Raj explore use cases for developer productivity and amplification of security efforts, as well as the risks of adopting next-gen intelligent automation tools. Among the areas that Maria sees AI poised to disrupt: secure design, threat intelligence, risk prioritization and vulnerability management (i.e. autoremediation), vulnerability detection (e.g. adaptive fuzzing), software security skills gaps, regulation (at the governmental and business levels), and the nature of cyber threats themselves.
