Deepfakes have been around for almost a decade, but only started to gain traction in 2017. They are artificial media that use known, valid data and a form of Artificial Intelligence (AI deep learning) to manipulate videos, images or audio, making it difficult to distinguish between real and fabricated content. Deepfakes are categorised as social engineering attacks that can be used to breach an organisation’s network and compromise internal data.
