In order to sensitise police officials about tools for tackling online misinformation and prevent its spread in public, the Cyber Crime Division of Punjab Police in association with Meta (Facebook) and representatives of Misinformation Combat Alliance (MCA) organised a one-day workshop on identifying ‘deep fake’ in cyberspace and its potential in creating explicit content and spreading misinformation.

Deep fake is an image, audio or video edited digitally to replace the original with someone else in a way that it makes it look authentic.

Meta, along with MCA team discussed various methods to identify, debunk and tackle misinformation on online platforms during the training program, which was attended by over 150 police personnel of various ranks posted across the state.

The training focused on building the capacity of Punjab Police in using publicly available tools and resources to defeat misinformation, malformation, disinformation created through deep fake.

ADGP (Cyber Crime) V Neeraja said the issue of misinformation and deep fake is a growing concern for citizens, especially for prominent individuals, celebrities and public figures. “Punjab Police will continue to work with key stakeholders to ensure that cyberspace remains a safe zone for users and is committed to adopting effective solutions for such threats,” she said.

DIG (Cyber Crime) Nilambari V Jagadale said that to curb spread of misinformation in cyberspace, Rapid Information Communication Network (RICN) has also been created to make people aware about the modus operandi of cyber fraudsters.
