Thirtyseven4 EDR Security: The Rise of Deepfakes

With the inception of “deepfakes” only initially occurring in 2017, the precise accuracy of today’s deepfakes proves developmentally shocking.  Deepfakes are AI-generated media that have been digitally manipulated to replace one person’s likeness convincingly with that of another. Over the years, deepfakes have often been created and spread across social media impersonating celebrities and political figures with the dubious intention of spreading misinformation and damaging reputations. Examples of viral deepfakes include high-profile celebrities like: Keanu Reeves, Tom Cruise, Jerry Seinfeld, and Donald Trump. 

The Thirtyseven4 EDR Security ThreatLab has seen a noticeable increase in usage of deepfakes in the cybersecurity arena, which reveals one of the most current trends (threats) in online security. Cybercriminals are exploiting advancements in cyber–Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies for evil. Deepfakes are now being created with increasingly convincing accurate-but-counterfeit audio and visual content to impersonate superintendents, pastors, CEO’s, and other business executives. Like phishing and spearfishing scams of old, the recipients of these deepfakes are duped into sharing confidential or financial information because they believe the video and/or audio is of their superior/manager/boss.   

To protect yourself from deepfakes, be extremely cautious when consuming content online, and always verify and only trust information from reputable sources. It is also recommended to implement a system of checks and balances, because deepfake videos can be hard to identify. For example, if you receive a video from your boss requesting highly sensitive information, it may be wise to reach out to him via a communication channel you’re accustomed to double check. It most arenas, but especially in the cyber-security arena, it is much better to be safe than sorry.

Thirtyseven4 EDR Security ThreatLab statistics and predictions suggest a probable increase in the volume of deepfakes, as well as their subversity in nature and content.  As always, prevention (and wisdom) is the best offense: might we suggest Thirtyseven4 EDR Security?
