Deepfake in Online Gambling Promotions: Real Threat to the Creative Industry and Content Creators

Case studies from other countries illustrate how deepfake can be utilized for extortion, revenge, and political manipulation.


The use of deepfake in online gambling promotions involving public figures such as Najwa Shihab, Raffi Ahmad, and Atta Halilintar is not only daring but also poses serious risks to digital integrity and security. Heru Sutadi, Executive Director of the Indonesia ICT Institute, revealed that these attacks have challenged the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology's (Kominfo) ban, showing non-compliance with digital security norms.

According to him, the figures involved should confirm the authenticity of these videos, helping to avoid confusion among fans. Although trust in deepfake is low, clarity from the parties involved is crucial to maintain reputation and public trust.

In addition to domestic cases, deepfake has become a global threat. Case studies from other countries illustrate how this technology can be used for extortion, revenge, and political manipulation. This serves as a warning for the digital world, including the creative industry and content creators.

In response to this trend, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo) provides insights and policies regarding deepfake. Kominfo's support in understanding and responding to technological developments is key to protecting society and the industry from negative impacts.

Here are some tips and guidelines to avoid deepfake crimes:

1. Check Audio Quality:

Deepfakes often fail to replicate the same audio quality as the original. Pay attention to whether the voice sounds unfamiliar or out of sync with lip movements.

2. Evaluate Context and Situation:

Understand the context behind the content you see. Is the content consistent with the expected context and situation? Suspicion of content that doesn't fit its context can be a sign of deepfake.

3. Verify Content Sources:

Make sure you get content from trustworthy and accountable sources. Avoid getting content from unclear or unverified sources.

4. Review Emotional Reactions:

Consider emotional reactions from individuals in the content. Deepfakes may fail to replicate facial expressions and emotional reactions accurately.

5. Use Supporting Tools:

Utilize technology and supporting tools to verify the authenticity of content. There are several applications and online services that can help identify deepfakes.

6. Pay Attention to Consistency of Details:

Observe the consistency of details in the content. Deepfakes often lack consistency in details, such as differences in skin color or unnatural hair texture.

7. Save Evidence and Report:

If you suspect that content is a deepfake, save and report it to relevant authorities or social media platforms where the content was published.
