Problem Statement: GenAI Test Suite Assistant: Elevating QA Efficiency

In the landscape of application development, the quality assurance process plays a pivotal role in ensuring software reliability, user satisfaction and running the applications seamlessly in production. However, manual test cases and test data generation are often labor-intensive, time-consuming, and susceptible to oversight leading to potentially critical bugs slipping into production environments. Existing automated solutions may lack the flexibility, adaptability required to cover diverse use cases and full range of potential scenarios effectively. To address these challenges, there is a pressing need for an innovative test cases and test data generator powered by GenAI technology.

Other TI teams will publish reports without obvious alignment to ATT&CK, and the reader must trawl through reports to understand attackers’ tactics, and how to defend their organisation against them.
