Samsung prohibits ChatGPT usage following data leak incident

Samsung has recently banned the use of ChatGPT, an AI chatbot, on its company-owned devices and internal networks.

The decision came after employees inadvertently shared sensitive information, such as source code, with the chatbot for error-checking and meeting note summarisation.

The incident has raised security concerns about the use of generative AI systems like ChatGPT, which store shared information on OpenAI’s servers, potentially allowing data to be used for model improvements unless users opt out.

This move by Samsung aligns with similar actions taken by major financial institutions, including JPMorgan, Bank of America, and Citigroup, which have also banned or restricted ChatGPT usage due to privacy concerns.

OpenAI is addressing these issues by launching an “incognito mode” and working on a business version of ChatGPT that won’t share chat data by default.
