This new cutting edge series will explore the cybersecurity challenges of tomorrow and how we must approach them today with a range of recognised experts, authors and thought leaders.

Episode One: The Problem With Truth: Deep Fakes, AI & Synthetic Media and Episode Two: The Problem With Truth: Privacy & Consent are available for download now. Episode three and four will be released in April.


About Episode One – ‘The Problem with truth’.

Special guest Nina Schick provides insight, analysis and opinion in the Cyber Hacks podcast first episode. Nina is a distinguished researcher, author and broadcaster with a specialism in deep fakes and disinformation. She has advised groups of global leaders, including Joe Biden, the President of the United States, and Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former Secretary-General of NATO, on deep fakes.

Named ‘The Problem With Truth’ it highlights how AI is deliberately manipulated in a cynical attempt to change the collective perception of the truth of actual events and our understanding of them. It also discusses the malicious efforts of the highly motivated, capable bad actors attempting to erode further public confidence in our government, democratic institutions and public figures.

The discussion raises thought-provoking questions such as how this is being driven, by whom and for what malicious objective. It also discusses controversial topics such as disinformation and conspiracy groups, including their role in recent US events. Finally, they will ask what response and leadership have there been in this area, what can we expect from western democracies, and how do we protect the ‘Truth’ in the age of synthetic media.
