Fake News and Deepfakes: Harmless Fun or the Future of Fraud?



FakeNewsAndDeepfakes-SOCIALWe have all seen them. Fake news articles that get passed off as legit sources. Misleading memes. Entertaining videos that swap people’s faces. But what if these deception techniques were used against you to gain access to your organization? What if you receive a phone call or see a video from someone who sounds or even looks like your CEO, but it’s not really them?

Join KnowBe4 Security Awareness Advocates Erich Kron and Javvad Malik as they discuss the frightening advancement in digital deception techniques and the growing popularity of recent threats known as “Deepfakes”. Deepfake technology uses advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technology to create realistic videos and audio using free software and inexpensive hardware from home. By faking instructions from leadership, these videos and audio files can be used to take traditional phishing and vishing attacks to a whole new level!

  • An overview and history of digital fakes
  • The use of free photo and video technology to create convincing fakes
  • Potential real-world uses cases
  • Impact of successful fakes on organizations
