In an era marked by rapid automation, many security leaders are putting the human element at the center of their cybersecurity strategy. Advancements in AI, especially generative AI, are driving this momentum further.

As AI evolves, its potential is increasingly being counterbalanced by significant risks and security concerns. A cybersecurity framework that's built on the principle of essential human judgment and ethical oversight can help harness AI's potential responsibly.

"AI is good, but only when the human is the steward and governing it. We have a belief in the ingenuity, agency and compassion of humans, which won't be found in automation,” said Marten Mickos, CEO, HackerOne.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2024, Mickos also discussed:

  • The need for a human-centered approach to cybersecurity;
  • AI red teaming and how CISOs can benefit from it;
  • How bug bounty initiatives can help with AI safety.

Mickos previously served as CEO of MySQL AB. Prior to that, he led Eucalyptus Systems and held leadership roles at Nokia and Hewlett-Packard. Throughout his career, he has acted as an adviser to many organizations.
