The White House released the Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence on Oct 20, and since then cybersecurity professionals have been discussing the directives in it, whether it is possible to accomplish them and if so, how to do that.

The mission is complicated by the fact that generative AI is already out there. "Will we retrain large language models with these directives in mind?" asked Dan Grosu, the chief technology officer and chief information security officer at Information Security Media Group. The executive order is "a good step forward," Grosu said, but it reflects "a lack of strategy" about how to turn those directives into reality.

And even if we do, will our efforts in the United States have any impact on how AI is being used in other countries around the world?

The pressure on enterprises to adopt AI combined with the lack of understanding many in the enterprise have about AI creates a huge risk, Grosu said. "It's going to be a madhouse. I don't see where it's going to end up."

In this episode of's podcast series "Cybersecurity Insights," Grosu discussed:

  • The burden placed on NIST to set standards for AI;
  • How using AI without knowing what to expect from it can be "fraught with failure";
  • Why most enterprises will "just run with ChatGPT" and "hope for the best."

As a leader in technology and security at Information Security Media Group Corp for the past 14 years, Grosu has been pivotal in building and managing the company's infrastructure from its inception, guiding its successful transition to cloud computing. He is also the technical co-founder of Grosu has over 20 years of experience in shaping technology strategies for startups and SMBs. Prior to ISMG, he held key roles in organizations across banking, healthcare and automotive sectors.
