Splunk Triple-T: AI Trends & Challenges for Cybersecurity

Spring 2024

We found that the overwhelming majority of CISOs (70%) believe that generative AI will create an asymmetrical battlefield that will inevitably be tipped in favor of cyber adversaries. We are more optimistic than that, though. We know 35% of CISOs are already using AI for positive security applications, and 61% will likely use it in the next 12 months.
