Deepfakes are digital forgeries that use artificial intelligence to create believable but misleading images, audio, and videos. When organizational insiders interact with this manipulated media, they may inadvertently take actions that compromise their organizations security. To address this problem, weve developed a short video to raise awareness of deepfakes and provide guidance on how to counteract them. The purpose of this effort is to decrease unintentional insider threat by building greater awareness of deepfakes and how they are used to influence workforce behavior.
