"AI could be even bigger than past advancements in security like cloud or API security," Sekhar said.

"Everybody's used ChatGPT or cloud. We're a big investor in Anthropic, and we've basically opened up these models to the public. And you can trick these models into saying things that they don't want to say by injecting prompt engineering text that'll trick these models," he said.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2024, Sekhar also discussed:

  • The nature of AI-specific attacks;
  • How AI can streamline security operations;
  • Using AI to bridge the talent gap.

Sekhar focuses on early- to late-stage venture investments in enterprise and infrastructure including cloud, AI/ML, DevOps, cybersecurity and networking. His current investments include Amberflo, ClearDATA, DataRobot, Dremio, FOSSA, Harness and InfluxData. Prior to Menlo Ventures, he was a partner at Norwest Venture Partners.
