Lueck underscored the dual nature of artificial intelligence - as both a powerful defense mechanism and a potential vulnerability that demands careful consideration and proactive protection. He highlighted the paradoxical response to AI adoption, as a survey revealed that 95% of respondents use AI in their businesses but 89% view it as a threat.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at Black Hat Europe 2023, Lueck also discussed:

  • The defensive use of AI in countering evolving threats, such as sophisticated phishing attacks;
  • The potential security implications of implementing gen AI technologies;
  • The fundamental shift toward AI as a pivotal force in various industries.

Lueck has nearly 30 years of information security experience. His expertise spans enterprise security management, threat intelligence, vulnerability management, compliance and security architecture.
