Although the ability to detect fraud has increased in the computer age, the best auditing program will not enable detection of fraudulent activity unless the auditor identifies the appropriate transaction for examination. Data analytics, which searches for patterns of activity, increasingly is used to identify, locate, and recognize fraudulent activity in business transactions.
In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders, assembled by The Knowledge Group, will help businesses and their counsel understand the advantages of using Data Analytics in Fraud Detection and Prevention. Speakers will also offer best practices in ensuring compliance with Data Privacy and Security Laws.
