Description

The field of data analytics is the next frontier in the war on fraud. As a rapidly growing field with emerging capabilities, data analytics is changing how organizations combat fraud—offering faster and easier methods to detect and respond to potential fraud. A well-considered fraud analytics strategy provides invaluable insight that can enable timely detection, avoiding the typical “pay and chase” approach to addressing fraud. And while many organizations lack the resources to develop highly sophisticated predictive analytics, there are opportunities to start small, with rules-based detection models on simple fraud use cases with abundant data sources, such as purchase cards or payroll systems.

Speakers

  • Megan Gaillard, CGFM, Director of Audit, Palm Beach County - OIG

  • Latesha Love, Assistant Director, Forensic Audits and Investigative Service, GAO

Learning Objectives

Participants will explore the ways to build or further enhance fraud detection and prevention toolkit with cost-effective analytics tools and techniques.
