Synthetic Media, Deepfakes, and Cyber Deception: Attacks, Analysis, and Defenses introduces the only analytical Synthetic Media Analysis Framework (SMAF) to help describe cyber threats and help security professionals anticipate and analyze attacks. This framework encompasses seven dimensions: Credibility, Control, Medium, Interactivity, Familiarity, Intended Target, and Evocation. Synthetic media is a broad term that encompasses the artificial manipulation, modification, and production of information, covering a spectrum from audio-video deepfakes to text-based chatbots. Synthetic media provides cyber attackers and scammers with a game-changing advantage over traditional ROSE attacks because they have the potential to convincingly impersonate close associates through text, imagery, voice, and video. This burgeoning threat has yet to be meaningfully addressed through any written treatment on the topic. The book is co-authored by three cyber influence and deception experts who have gained deep knowledge and experience on the topic through diverse, true operational pathways and backgrounds. The diversity and perspectives of the author team makes the content in the book the broadest and deepest treatment of synthetic media attacks available to readers.

  • Introduces the authors' Synthetic Media Assessment Framework (SMAF) to effectively and efficiently analyze threats based on discrete criteria
  • Covers case examples to contextualize threats and assess them through the SMAF
  • Provides end-of-chapter questions to re-affirm knowledge of the audience
  • Includes a SMAF Analysis worksheet for tactical use in assessing threats

Cameron H. Malin is a Behavioral Profiler with over 20 years of experience investigating, analyzing and profiling cyber adversaries across the spectrum of criminal to national security. He is the founder of the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit's (BAU) Cyber Behavioral Analysis Center (CBAC) and the longest serving FBI Cyber Profiler. He is a co-author of the authoritative cyber deception book, Deception in the Digital Age: Exploiting and Defending Human Targets Through Computer-Mediated Communications (published by Academic Press, an imprint of Elsevier, Inc.) and co-author of the Malware Forensics book series: Malware Forensics: Investigating and Analyzing Malicious Code, Malware Forensics Field Guide for Windows Systems, and Malware Forensics Field Guide for Linux Systems (all published by Syngress, an imprint of Elsevier, Inc.). Cameron is the creator of Digital Behavioral Criminalistics - a combined application of numerous forensic disciplines-digital forensics, criminalistics, and behavioral sciences-to meaningfully uncovering offender thoughts and actions in digital artifacts-as well as the Cyber Pathway to Intended Violence (CPIV)-a model for assessing violent offenders who have engaged computer systems, devices, and/or online resources before, during, and/or after a premeditated, violent act. These important emerging topics were published in his book chapter Digital Behavioral Criminalistics to Elucidate the Cyber Pathway to Intended Violence in the International Handbook of Threat Assessment, 2nd Edition (Oxford University Press, 2021). Prior to working for the FBI, Cameron was an Assistant State Attorney (ASA) and Special Assistant United States Attorney in Miami, Florida, where he specialized in computer crime prosecutions.

He is a founding member of the Cognitive Security Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to research and understanding the nuances of defending human and artificial decision makers from cognitive attacks. He currently holds an affiliated faculty member appointment with George Mason University, where the focus of his research orients around synthetic media - deepfake-social social engineering attacks, cognitive security, and insider risk. Dr. Canham was previously a Special Agent for the FBI, where he investigated cybercrimes, insider threats, and ran cyber HUMINT operations as a certified online covert employee. During his tenure with the FBI, he also served as a subject matter expert with the Behavioral Analysis Program (BAP) and as the Technical Liaison between the Operational Technology Division (OTD) and the Cyber Behavioral Analysis Center (CBAC).
