Evolving Threat #1 Voice Authentication
As companies wrestle with the ongoing threat of their users and customers being Phished, some companies are using voice as a means to replace passwords for authentication purposes.
Voice recognition technology is a type of biometric authentication that uses a person's unique voiceprint to verify their identity.
This technology has become more widespread in recent years, and some companies are using it as a more secure and convenient alternative to traditional passwords. Voice biometrics can be used for a variety of applications, such as banking, healthcare, and customer service.
However, it's worth noting that voice recognition technology is not foolproof and can still be vulnerable to hacking or spoofing. In recent weeks, Josepth Cox from Motherboard reported that due to increased capabilities of voice artificial intelligence platforms, he was able to trick his own bank into accepting AI generated speech having spent very little time, or money, training the AI solution, which in this case was 11 Labs.
As with any technology, it's important to weigh the pros and cons and consider the potential risks before implementing it as a security measure. Talk to us today for expert advice.
