Who’s REAL?


A deepfake is a graphical output produced by machine learning. It can be any kind of image: from crude drawings to photo-realistic portraits indistinguishable from reality.

Synthetic fraud

Synthetic fraud utilizes deepfake technology to a wider extent. Fake news, the Pope wearing Balenciaga, or a carefully crafted fake ID are all examples of synthetic fraud.

Deepfake use is on the rise everywhere. In Q1 2023, there were 10% more deepfake attacks than in all of 2022.

  • What is an example of synthetic identity fraud?-

    An example of synthetic identity fraud is when a fraudster combines real and fake information to create a new identity. They may use a legitimate Social Security number or other personal details combined with fabricated data or ID photos to perform fraud. Companies can prevent synthetic identity fraud with biometric spoofing and deepfake detection software.

  • How do you identify synthetic identity fraud?+

    With the help of Sumsub’s Liveness and Face Match technologies, synthetic fraud can be instantly detected via automated analysis of graphical artifacts. Synthetic ID fraud detection is a necessary procedure for regulated businesses to undertake during client onboarding.

  • What is deepfake in cyber security?+

    Deepfake refers to the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to create highly realistic manipulated videos, images, and audio recordings. Deepfakes can be used to deceive individuals or manipulate public opinion by impersonating someone and spreading false information. As a result, deepfake cybersecurity efforts are concentrated on preventing this particular type of fraud from taking place.

  • What are the risks of deepfakes?+

    Deepfakes can be employed for fraud, blackmail, or social engineering purposes. They have the potential to undermine trust in media and erode the credibility of visual or audio evidence. These risks can be negated with a specialized deepfake detection tool like Sumsub.

  • Is there software to identify deepfakes?+

    Deepfake detection software like Sumsub employs machine learning algorithms and forensic analysis to detect anomalies in manipulated media. As deepfake technology advances, so does the sophistication of detection methods, resulting in an ongoing cat-and-mouse game between fraudsters and detectors.
