The phenomenon of deepfakes has spread to the domain of video conferencing, representing a serious threat to the security of corporate communications. These advanced AI techniques enable the creation of video and audio so sophisticated that it appears lifelike, allowing attackers to impersonate trusted individuals. Potential manipulation isn't limited to faces and voices; it can also extend to behaviors and body language, increasing the difficulty of distinguishing true from false.

Defense tools against deepfakes

To counter the threat of deepfakes, the implementation of robust security systems and the continuous updating of technical skills are essential. Organizations must equip themselves with advanced authentication and validation tools, such as biometric recognition and digital watermark verification, to protect communications from potential forgery. Staff training is also critical, so that they can recognize and report suspicious content.

Legal and compliance impacts

The malicious use of deepfakes in video conferencing raises not only security issues, but also legal and compliance implications. Companies must carefully navigate both the laws on privacy and use of personal data and specific regulations regarding the authenticity of communications. The ability to verify the real identity of the interlocutors proves fundamental to safeguard the legal validity of interactions and agreements made during video conferences.

Continuous analysis and monitoring

Maintaining high vigilance by constantly analyzing and monitoring network traffic is crucial to preventing deepfake-based attacks. AI solutions themselves can be applied to identify anomalies in data traffic that suggest intrusion or manipulation attempts. The adoption of encrypted communication protocols and the practice of periodic checks of IT infrastructures are recommended practices to mitigate the risk of exposure to these sophisticated cyber threats.
