Is Sharing Sensitive Data with ChatGPT Risky?

Is Sharing Sensitive Data with ChatGPT Risky?

The answer is Yes.

Sharing sensitive data with ChatGPT or any other online service carries some inherent risks, and it’s important to be cautious.

Good News, GTB’s Data Security that Workstm does cover ChatGPT, so if by chance an end user posts sensitive data, including unstructured IP such as source code, to ChatGPT, GTB will detect and follow through on the policy.

Here are a few factors to consider when utilizing online services:

  1. Data Privacy: When sharing sensitive data with an online service, there is a potential risk of unauthorized access, data breaches, or misuse of the information. It’s essential to assess the privacy policies and security measures of the service provider to ensure they have appropriate safeguards in place.
  2. Encryption and Security Measures: Evaluate whether the service you are using employs encryption protocols and other security measures to protect the data during transmission and storage. Encryption can help ensure that even if the data is intercepted, it remains unreadable to unauthorized parties.
  3. Data Retention: Understand how long the service retains your data and whether they have policies in place for securely deleting or anonymizing the information after a certain period. Limiting data retention can reduce the risk of long-term exposure.
  4. Compliance and Regulations: Consider whether the service provider complies with relevant data protection regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or other industry-specific requirements. Compliance with these regulations indicates a commitment to protecting user data.
  5. User Awareness and Practices: Users should be cautious when sharing sensitive data and ensure they don’t inadvertently disclose personally identifiable information or confidential data. Exercise good judgment and avoid sharing sensitive information unless necessary.
