London, UK – November 08, 2023 – Shufti Pro, one of the leading identity proofing, risk assessment, AML screening, e-IDV, and KYB service providers, sheds light on the ATO (Account Takeover Fraud) and IDV fraud statistics. An analysis from multiple research agencies shows that ATO and IDV fraud has increased to 307% from 2019-2021, which climbed to 604% in 2023, majorly due to AI and ML.
According to the report by Bloomberg, deepfake and generative AI technology is turbocharging a new wave of cyber fraud. “Masks created with photos from social media that can penetrate a system protected by face ID,” and “Computer-generated children’s voices are so realistic they fool their own parents” – Bloomberg’s report.
The proliferation of deception technology is alarming regulators, consumers, businesses, and security experts in the Fintech industry. It highlights an awareness among end-users and organisations around how deepfake technology is accelerating ID fraud.
