Artificial Intelligence is disrupting every industry, and cybersecurity is no exception. Organizations who plan to incorporate AI want to ensure that AI-enabled apps are protected from attacks unique to AI. At the same time, threat actors and cybersecurity professionals alike have already started leveraging AI in a rapidly accelerating arms race. For cybersecurity professionals, learning how to employ AI in your testing efforts can significantly improve your defenses.

In this course, cybersecurity expert Jerod Brennen shares foundational knowledge of the different types of security testing, sharing guidance on how you can leverage existing AI tools to improve the quality of that testing. The course consists of five main chapters, each covering a different security testing type. Each chapter explains how to use AI to enhance each test, as well as unique considerations when using AI for that specific type of test, and ends with a demo using ChatGPT, Bard, and (in the final chapter) both.
