Because deepfakes have proven to spread misinformation and damage reputations, regulation is critical. YouTube’s decision to ban deepfakes is a step in the right direction, but there is still plenty of room for improvement. Deepfakes pose a serious threat to the digital economy and the evolution of digital identity because it’s far too easy to use AI to create realistic deepfakes – and they can be weaponized to commit fraud. To prevent deepfakes from becoming the next leading attack vector, advanced authentication methods, such as face-based authentication, must be able to detect and stop deepfakes in order to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving fraud curve.
