As we enter this new decade with unprecedented levels of digital trust (accelerated further by the pandemic), we're also becoming vulnerable to a new generation of frauds fueled by the very same technologies that benefit us. Advancements in image & voice recognition have led to attacks on digital authentication like deep-fake media. Social media has become vulnerable to programmatic fake identity creation & manipulative option harvesting. As more smart machines become part of our payments (from a smart-speaker to a smart-truck), they stand vulnerable to attacks on our money transfer infrastructure. The insurance industry itself, which protects us from such risks, has been exposed to new frauds fueled by the sharing economy, digital counterfeits & misrepresented digital claims. We will explore these dark territories of fraud & fraud prevention in the coming decade with a panel of experts in this webinar hosted by The Hive Think Tank with Avanta Ventures.
