Topic: Deepfakes & Fraud
Video or audio clips manipulated by advanced technology, otherwise known as “deep fakes,” could produce devastating societal impacts, from swinging elections to causing riots or even prompting a war. As researchers, governments, and technology companies grapple with the existential threats posed by deep fakes, the fraud implications of the phenomenon might be overlooked.
At least one major fraud scheme incorporating the technology already caused a major loss for an organization. As resources for creating deep fakes become more advanced or accessible, other traditional fraud schemes could benefit from leveraging the ability to manipulate audio and video. Investigators and fraud examiners need to be aware of the risks associated with deep fakes and how best to protect their organizations from this emerging threat and understand potential implications for more traditional investigation issues.
