The GenAI revolution risks in SaaS environments

What is GenAI Security Posture Management in the World of SaaS?

The workforce is rapidly adopting SaaS applications with GenAI to increase efficiency, including AI apps such as GitHub Copilot, Salesforce Einstein, and Microsoft 365 Copilot. While increasing automation and improving productivity, the use of GenAI introduces new risks including data leakage, attack surface expansion, new areas of exploitation, and privacy concerns, as well as new challenges to meet compliance and government requirements.
