It has become a bit of a cliche to write, “ChatGPT just changed everything in [insert your topic] every few months.”

But what happened in the recent OpenAI’s DevDay was nothing short of mind-blowing

Amongst all the improvements revealed .. the introduction of GPTs, i.e. your own customized versions of ChatGPT, was the biggest!

The ability to just create your very own AI agent with zero coding needed has mind-blowing potential!

It is difficult to imagine what we will see people making in a few months as they get more hands-on with it

Of course, the chance to make money with GPTs will motivate people even more!

GPTs can be considered the next evolution of things like plugs in and custom instructions, which OpenAI gradually added in the previous months.

Just to put things in context .. with GPTs, you can :

  • Enter instructions to make it behave in a certain way.
  • Provide further information by uploading external files.
  • Provide it access to existing abilities like browsing, DALL-E 3, code interpreter, AND .. APIs

People have already been going crazy creating all sorts of innovative GPTs, allowing them to optimize their tweets and YouTube channels, etc.

But what are the implications for Cybersecurity?

Two things are going to have a major impact.

The No-code approach

Effectively giving all this power with zero coding knowledge needed means anyone can start creating GPTs

This is going to greatly lower the bar of entry for professionals, meaning you need to update your DOs and DONTs now.

Make sure your employees who are using ChatGPT understand what GPTs are and that this is still something…
