AI is changing the cybersecurity landscape, creating unparalleled tools for defending digital assets while also creating new attack vectors and vulnerabilities. It's a bit of a double-edged sword, but one that every Cybersecurity professional will need to learn to wield.

What you'll learn

  • The potential vulnerabilities and ethical considerations of ChatGPT
  • Security risks associated with machine learning
  • Practical application of AI tools in cyber attacks
  • Threats posed by AI in phishing and social engineering attacks
  • The positive impact of AI in cybersecurity, showing how AI technologies can enhance defence mechanisms, detect anomalies, and ultimately fortify cybersecurity frameworks

Why Take This AI and Cybersecurity Course?

AI technologies such as ChatGPT (a Large Language Model) are hot topics, but they're not just about cool tech advancements.

There's a flip side, including tricky vulnerabilities and ethical dilemmas.

Think about the data these AIs chew on – where does it come from, and who decides what's okay to use? Then there's the whole can of worms around security.

Machine learning is amazing, but guess what? The bad guys love it too. They're using AI to get smarter about hacking, making phishing and social engineering tricks way more convincing.

But look, it's not all doom and gloom. It's an opportunity for you to learn at the cutting edge of cybersecurity.

Plus AI is also stepping up as a new cybersecurity tool that you can use to defend your digital assets.
