Contact Details Alistair Ross alistair@revolutioninfosec.com Web: https://revolutioninfosec.com Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/alistairjross https://www.linkedin.com/company/revolutioninfosec Sean G Muller seangmuller@technologyleader.co.nz Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/sgmuller/ Show Notes: 1) OpenAI are being sued. Since the inception of ChatGPT back in November 2021, controversy has never been far away, and smaller legal battles have always been looming, however, at the end of June, A firm in California filed a class-action lawsuit for "stealing" personal data in order to train ChatGPT. What is interesting about this case is that depending upon how well prepared the complainants are, OpenAI may be required to fess up to how they trained their model. The only public information about OpenAI's ChatGPT that we really know is that OpenAI scraped 300 billion words from the Internet. We don't know how they scraped them and where they scraped it from. The complainant states that OpenAI trained its model partially with personal information, some of it from social media accounts, including Twitter and Reddit. The complainant goes on to state that OpenAI did so in secret, without registering as a data broker as was required to do under applicable laws. The most interesting aspect for me is by how much OpenAI are profiting from these sources, or whether they in fact are profiting, OpenAI have oft stated that they do not (yet) turn a profit. Certainly, on paper, OpenAI are worth many billions in unrealised value, and recently Microsoft made a $10B USD stake in them, so that might have turned them into a profit making machine. The fifteen counts in the complaint include privacy violations, negligence in failing to protect personal information, as well as larceny by obtaining large amounts of personal data to train its models by illegal means. The lawsuit has stretched as far as to seek injunctive relief in the form of a temporary freeze on commercial use of OpenAI's products. If granted, this could have vast reaching effects on organisations that currently use OpenAI's model on their own applications or services. Where do you sit on this Sean? It could be argued that the information that is publicly accessible on the Internet is free for anyone to see, including OpenAI, regardless of whether that is ethically responsible, it certainly is 'freely available'. On the other hand, it could be argued that people have a right to be guardians of their own content. If it is to be used in a wholesale manner by another corporation (potentially for profit), then they must seek permission from the original content author. Doing otherwise could be seen as a violation of privacy. 2) Elon Musk launches new AI company called xAI. A team around of 12 engineers. His mission he states to 'Understand the true nature of the Universe'. On the website, it states that more information is coming in the following weeks and months, so I won't expect to see anything like an OpenAI or Bard competitor for the foreseeable future. However, they certainly have the chops to do it, remembering that Musk was one of the original founders of OpenAI. What is interesting is that Musk was also one of the people who recently spoke out about AI as a whole, and took issue with the rapid pace of development (mainly pointed at OpenAI), stating that we should press the pause button on AI development. By launching this startup, it's clear that he's made a u-turn on that decision! The website states that it is a standalone company, unrelated from Tesla and other Musk companies including Twitter (now called X corp), however Musk states that he will work closely with them to make progress towards xAI's mission. From a privacy perspective, will this mean that it could use tweets (including DMs) as a training model for xAI? Obviously this is possibly where OpenAI are in hot water, as per my previous story, so it will be interesting to find out how...

11 - Technology Whisperers Demystifying Zero Trust Security

6/14/2022
Zero Trust Security Traditionally, our networks have been castle and moat style. We trust everything in our castle, and everything after the moat (or in the moat to a lesser extent, ie the DMZ), is untrusted. This was a decent model when all of our infrastructure was based on our own physical networks, in our own server rooms, running our own software that we had the CDs for. But most of the time we are on the Internet. A lot of software runs in the cloud, either as a service, or connects to the Internet for a lot of its services. Today, we can’t trust the stuff on our network anywhere. Internally, externally, or on a DMZ. Thus a ‘perimiterless’ or zero-trust security model has started to become an often-talked about concept. In this episode Alistair and Sean demystify what "Zero Trust" is, why an executive at an organisation should care and what they should understand about it. In addition, they dive into a little of the technical 'how' to be successful implementing a "Zero Trust" security model.

08 - Technology Whisperers talk Business Technologists with Cam Chapman

4/30/2022
In this episode, Sean and Alistair meet with Cam Chapman, CEO of Fernleaf Consulting where he discusses Business Technology. Business Technology is not a methodology or framework – it’s a cultural shift in the way technologists can engage and deliver to their customers. As a Business Technologist, Cam is very passionate about the opportunities it provides for digital technology providers to dissolve the Business/IT divide . We felt that Cam’s story (and the reason he started his own business, Fernlead Consulting), really resonates with many parallels being drawn between what we are trying to achieve in demystifying technology in The Technology Whisperers. In this podcast, Cam covers the concept of what Business Technology is (as opposed to Information Technology), and what sort of people Business Technologists actually are. He then goes on to rationalise why organisations should think along the lines of what thor business needs, which answers the ‘Why Business Technology?’, We also talk about Shadow IT and Business Technology vs Shadow IT. This is an action packed podcast with lots of great thought provoking ideas that you don’t want to miss! cam@fernleafconsulting.com https://www.linkedin.com/in/camchapman/ https://www.linkedin.com/company/fernleafconsulting/ https://fernleafconsulting.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/sgmuller/ sean.muller@servian.com https://www.linkedin.com/in/alistairjross/ alistair.ross@servian.com
