Adobe Security Project Sherlock AI threat response

Using LLMs to Automate and Streamline Cyber Threat Analysis

TechSpective Podcast Episode 122


There are a number of steps involved in cyber threat analysis to review event information and determine which events are benign or innocuous and which are malicious–or at least deserve greater scrutiny. For the most part, it’s not that it is exceptionally complex or difficult work. The issue is mostly a matter of scale. The sheer volume of security events generated makes the initial triage to flag the ones that need more attention and collect the peripheral information to provide the context necessary for effective investigation is a Sisyphean task.

It is an ideal scenario for employing AI. Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence have been used for years to automate and streamline these sorts of tasks. Now, generative AI built on LLMs (Large Language Models) is transforming cybersecurity analysis. Anything that is routine and repeatable and can be clearly-defined should be automated with AI.

Adobe Security has developed a set of tools dubbed “Project Sherlock” to do just that. Tiberiu Boros and Radu Chivereanu, machine language engineers with Adobe Security, join the podcast to talk about ‘Project Sherlock’–an internal Adobe project utilizing generative AI to streamline cyber threat analysis and incident response.

Check out the full episode for more on Adobe’s “Project Sherlock.” We also discuss the challenges facing organizations and developers around the volume and relevance of the data sets used to train large language models, and some of the issues with AI hallucination and the need to validate the responses provided from generative AI models.
