Phil Venables, vice president, CISO, Google Cloud

AI has been the foundation of many Google products. "We use AI to defend billions of people every day, whether it's from malware, safe browsing or spam. Generative AI has demonstrated its worth in analyzing threats, supporting cybersecurity professionals and automating threat detection,” said Phil Venables, vice president, CISO for Google Cloud.

"We're actively training our models on security data and applying them to tools like VirusTotal for threat intelligence curation. This is proving significant and will likely be a decisive advantage for defenders," he said.

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

  • How generative AI bolsters cybersecurity measures and the reality of AI-based threats;
  • Deployment of responsible AI;
  • How security leaders can transform into broader cyber risk advisers.

Venables leads risk, security, compliance and privacy teams at Google Cloud. He joined Google in 2020 after spending over 25 years as a CISO at multiple financial services companies including Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and Barclays Bank.
