Google Cloud/Cloud Security Alliance Report: IT and Security Pros Are ‘Cautiously Optimistic’ About AI
2024-04-03 16:00

The C-suite is more familiar with AI technologies than their IT and security staff, according to a report from the Cloud Security Alliance commissioned by Google Cloud.

The report, published on April 3, addressed whether IT and security professionals fear AI will replace their jobs, the benefits and challenges of the increase in generative AI and more.

Another 24% are neutral on AI's impact on security measures, while 12% do not believe AI will improve security within their organization.

"The disconnect between the C-suite and staff in understanding and implementing AI highlights the need for a strategic, unified approach to successfully integrate this technology," said Caleb Sima, chair of Cloud Security Alliance's AI Safety Initiative, in a press release.

Organizations' goals for AI reflect this, with 36% seeking the outcome of AI enhancing security teams' skills and knowledge.

"In general, we're also starting to see job postings that include more AI-specific roles like prompt engineers, AI security architects, and security engineers," said Baron.
