Be Cautious of Hidden Threats with AI sites

The text "Cybersecurity Tip of the Week"

Artificial Intelligence (AI) sites, tools, and apps continue to increase in popularity. While they can offer educational, artistic and research opportunities, be careful of the fine print. By signing up, you might be relinquishing your rights to photos or content you upload, even your facial image. This can then be used without your consent. Other sites may present security threats to networks due to the information that can be obtained using the site.

Action Steps

Always check with your IT team BEFORE you visit AI sites or use AI tools on office equipment to ensure these sites are safe. Read the fine print of any site to ensure you are not giving up your identity, personal information, or credentials just by using the site.
