AI: Staying Ahead of the Curve

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a hot topic for a while now, intriguing, and frightening people almost equally. However, recently, we have been hearing more and more about AI-enhanced cyber attacks and how they’re affecting organizations across the globe. While AI can be a fantastic tool to help automate mundane procedures, it can also become a weapon in the wrong hands, and if the target doesn’t know how to identify the AI-enhanced attacks.


Earlier this month, a bank in Hong Kong was targeted by an AI-enhanced impersonation scam. A bank employee was asked to transfer $25.6 million on a video call with the bank CEO and other higher-up bank officials. Unbeknownst to the bank employee that made the transfer – the people on that video call were all fake, and it was a trick by scammers who created deepfakes with AI. Deepfakes are videos of a person in which their face or body has been digitally altered so that they appear to be someone else.

The bank employee believed with one hundred percent certainty that they were on a zoom call with their CEO – that’s how real these deepfakes can be, especially with the assistance of AI. So, as an organization, how can you protect your people? How can you ensure the safety of your organization? There are multiple steps and layers to your security you can add to help reduce the risk of Ai-enhanced cyber-attacks, but the first step is educating your employees.

How Do You Stay A Step Ahead of AI?

Pioneer-360 offers Employee Security Training that teaches people best practices and things to look out for to spot scams and deepfakes. Additionally, encrypting your data, and adding multiple layers of security to your network are great ways to avoid the risk of becoming a target. Since the arrival of ChatGPT in 2022, AI-generated content on the internet has increased more than 8,000%, according to a study done by Copyleaks. At this rate, AI is here to stay, and now is the time to get ahead of the curve with educating yourself and protecting your organization.

Go Beyond Training

Pioneer-360 goes beyond Employee Security Training. Partnering with us also provides your organization with security and compliance measures that reduce your risk profile and can help prevent attacks before they happen. Educate your people, protect your data, and implement the best practices to stay a step ahead. AI can be a fantastic tool, but can cripple a business if you don’t know what to look out for.
