  • ITMO Associate Professor Alexander Kuznetsov on How Criminals Fool Voice Recognition to Steal Money

    Biometric technology, such as voice recognition, is now being rolled out in banking. At the end of 2020, Russia passed a law enhancing the use of biometrics in the financial sector. However, cybercriminals already know how to fool such identification and gain access to customers’ money using fake audio tracks. How does it happen? What can cybersecurity specialists do about it? And what solutions can ITMO offer? Alexander Kuznetsov, an associate professor at ITMO’s Faculty of Secure Information Technologies, will answer these and many other questions.
