Analyst Chat #183: The Danger of Deepfakes for Identity Proofing and Growing Misinformation
Jul 31, 2023

Join Matthias as he delves into the world of deep fakes with Research Analyst Alejandro Leal. Deep fakes are manipulated media that can be difficult to distinguish from real footage, posing threats in remote identity proofing attacks and disinformation campaigns.

Alejandro discusses the challenges of detecting and countering deep fakes, emphasizing the need for a multifaceted approach involving media forensics, machine learning, public awareness, and policy developments to mitigate the associated risks.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Lies: Deepfakes or AI-Generated Synthetic Media
Nov 10, 2022

Imagine deepfake footage of a CEO engaging in bribery, a politician committing a sexual assault just a few days before an election, or soldiers committing atrocities on foreign soil. In our current environment, where conspiracy theories thrive, deepfakes could lead to catastrophic consequences. We are at an inflection point. Soon, deepfakes will move from being an oddity to possibly becoming a destructive social and political force. This presentation will discuss how deepfakes are made using deep learning methods and explore the possible impacts to society and to cybersecurity with some recent examples. The presenter will also discuss some of the latest research into deepfake detection.

Cyber Criminals by Design – Using Digital Twins to Understand Misbehavior
May 11, 2023

A digital twin is a virtual representation of a real-life subject. This mapping encompasses its entire lifecycle, is updated from real-time data, and uses simulation, machine learning, and reasoning to support decision-making.

Human beings and their behavior can also be copied and simulated by digital twins. During the last talk at the EIC conference, we already looked at the threats, challenges and opportunities creating digital twins in cybersecurity.
This time we want to discuss how we can dive into a world through a digital twin of a cybercriminal to change perspectives and to understand the cybercriminals behavior.
Imagine having a tool that can perform these simulations at the highest level. Why not use it to our own advantage?
A digital twin that not only simulates the approach and behavioral patterns of cyber criminals but can also predict ahead of time. What if we can turn the tables on cybercriminals by fighting fire with fire?

Facilitating Business with State-of-the-Art Identity Proofing Solutions
Oct 18, 2019

For traditional or Business-to-Employee (B2E) IAM, HR departments are responsible for gathering documentation from employees to determine their suitability for employment. For Business-to-Consumer (B2C) or CIAM, identity proofing can be more difficult. Depending on the nature of the business, the attributes that need to be collected and verified can differ widely. For example, Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations govern the kinds of attributes and authoritative attributes that must be collected in the finance industry.

Beating Fraudsters at Their Own Game With Fraud Reduction Intelligence Platforms
May 14, 2020

Fraud continues to be a major challenge for many organizations today. Industries such as finance, banks, payments, insurance, gaming, telecommunications, health care, etc. are dealing with increasing amounts of fraud and escalating sophistication of attacks. Account Takeovers (ATOs), synthetic fraud, and bots are a pervasive problem and continue to drain revenue from many businesses.

Side effects of (re)genAI impacting cyber security
Nov 14, 2023

The side effects of (re)generative AI impacting cyber security


The polarizing public discussion about ChatGPT and its siblings and the smokescreens of those responsible for technology and business behind the brands obscure a differentiated view on the non-obvious side effects of a completely overheated Chatbot rally. This makes it difficult to seriously address the partially mutually dependent side effects of the large-scale public use of this technology.


Employers in particular are torn between giving in to the tempting benefits of this technology while, at the same time, they have to live up to their responsibility towards the law, regulations such as ESG, their organizations and their digital assets, the society and the duty of care towards their employees. All of that without missing a beat of innovation in that field.


In this workshop, we'll jointly explore the missing questions that need individual answers for a conscious, responsible and security aware use of AI.

A Taste of AI & Phishing 2.0, a Data Rodeo
Nov 16, 2023

This session provides palpable illustrations of the latest LLM technologies and hands-on suggestions on how to tackle the challenges arising from automated, emotionally aware, and generative AI prompted with malicious intent.

What will digital deception and trickery look like in the age where today’s youth become the standard bearers of our digital world? Times of e.g. required proof of personhood, predicted behavioural biometrics, and advanced data brokerage.

How are social engineering tools, tactics, and procedures evolving? What can we expect? And how can we prepare?

In this presentation, Emilie van der Lande, certified information privacy professional (CIPP/E) and certified by MIT in Artificial Intelligence’s implications on business and strategy, will explore prevention and detection tips to be a step ahead of the shifting paradigms of Cyber Deceptology.
