Generative AI: Safety, Security, and Exploitations

Philipp Pointner of Jumio explores the ins and outs of Generative AI– from safety to enterprise security to exploitation. The use of generative AI has propelled technological advancements, revolutionizing tasks like research, report writing, and image creation with accelerated speed and efficiency. While these AI-driven automation tools offer substantial benefits for businesses, they simultaneously open the door to a new wave of fraudulent activities and disinformation.

David Divitt of Veriff goes deep into safeguarding your likeness from deepfakes, as the technology becomes more easily accessible. Identity theft is a staple of fraud actors’ tactics, including the use of fake IDs and impersonating people online after phishing for their identifying information.

Today, deepfake fraud rates continue to rise rapidly, and with the emergence of deepfakes-as-a-service, they’ll also become more scalable. Let’s explore the current state of deepfake fraud, and what businesses — and the average person — can do to protect their identities from malicious uses of AI.
