In this enlightening presentation, we dive into the evolving landscape of cybersecurity in the post-Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) era, provoking the notion of replacing the traditional CISO role with intelligent AI agents. This talk explores the intricacies of AGI and the future implications for executive decisions and cybersecurity leadership. We will take a look at the importance of upskilling human agency, offering actionable insights into how current cybersecurity professionals can adapt and thrive in this new era. With the thought of balancing the potential of AGI with irreplaceable human values, we set out on a journey to find a synergistic model for future cybersecurity frameworks that aligns with the dynamic, rapidly evolving threat landscape.
