According to a report in Bloomberg, Samsung Electronics has banned the use of generative AI tools like ChatGPT by employees after sensitive code was uploaded to the platform. The company is concerned about data being stored on external servers and the potential disclosure of information to other users.
A recent survey revealed that 65% of Samsung staff believe AI services pose a security risk. In response, Samsung has implemented rules prohibiting generative AI systems on company-owned devices and internal networks. Employees have been warned against submitting company-related information on personal devices and that violating the policy could result in termination. Samsung is developing its own internal AI tools and security measures for safer use of generative AI.
