This week we are exploring the weird world of deepfakes – one of the latest ways cyber criminals are exploiting people and making money.
Put simplistically, the term “deepfake” refers to an image, video, or audio clip that is manipulated using artificial intelligence and deep learning to depict something that did not really happen.
On this episode, we have two experts tackling the topic, first from a tech perspective – Andrzej Kawalec, Director of strategy and technology at Optiv, who explains how criminals are using deepfakes to their advantage, how companies should start to think about them, and what tech is developing in the arena to combat the threat. My second guest is Tamara Quinn a non-contentious IP and Data Privacy Partner at Osborne Clarke, who shares a legal perspective on the subject.
