Abstract

The paper delves into the potential of Chat GPT, an advanced language model developed by OpenAI, in the realm of cybersecurity. It explores the model's capabilities, advantages, disadvantages, and associated risks. Chat GPT's advantages in cybersecurity include threat detection and prevention, rapid incident response, enhanced user authentication, phishing detection, vulnerability scanning, security training, advanced threat intelligence, regulatory compliance, streamlined security operations, and improved human-machine collaboration. However, the paper also highlights potential disadvantages, such as the model's limited contextual understanding, vulnerability to social engineering, generation of misleading information, bias in responses, and inadequate understanding of security concepts. The discussion encompasses the ethical use of Chat GPT and the challenges related to controlling its behavior and addressing biases. Moreover, the paper discusses the risks, including malicious exploitation, adversarial attacks, privacy concerns, and misuse. It emphasizes the importance of implementing safeguards, user verification, and regulatory frameworks to maximize the benefits of Chat GPT while ensuring cybersecurity and safeguarding user interests. In conclusion, Chat GPT offers valuable insights and assistance in cybersecurity, but its limitations and risks need to be carefully considered in its application.
