Why SMEs Must Remain Agile Towards Deepfake Content on Cybersecurity

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) need to remain agile in addressing deepfake content on the internet

SMEs have advantages in addressing deepfake risks due to their flexibility, streamlined communication channels, and close-knit teams.

SMEs should adopt new technologies and take a proactive approach to cybersecurity to identify and mitigate potential threats

Tips for managing deepfake videos include being skeptical, staying informed, using fact-checking tools, checking metadata, enabling two-factor authentication, adjusting privacy settings, educating oneself and others, reporting suspicious content, using watermarks, staying cybersecure, considering legal actions, and supporting anti-deepfake initiatives

SMEs are more open to adopting new technologies and have less bureaucracy, allowing for quicker implementation of security measures

SMEs' cost sensitivity and focus on reputation drive them to actively address and mitigate deepfake risks

Collaboration with external cybersecurity experts and leveraging third-party tools can enhance SMEs' security posture

SMEs should stay informed, continuously update cybersecurity practices, promote awareness among employees, and implement training programs to strengthen defense against deepfake content
