Fraud is an issue that cuts across virtually all industries – and its perpetrators are becoming increasingly sophisticated and better organized. Fraudsters work in collusion with one another and with insiders to determine controls and vulnerabilities, often exploiting the technological weaknesses associated with disparate data systems and siloed operations.
In this webinar, conducted in partnership with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), our fraud experts focus on breaking down the data silos that prevent organizations from obtaining a holistic view of multiple entities and detecting fraud across various business units, program areas and departments.
Our experts discuss:
- Why the ability to share data across the enterprise is critical to fraud detection and prevention.
- How hidden nuggets and inconsistencies across data sources can identify potentially high-risk entities for further evaluation and review.
- What technology can do to facilitate early identification of potentially fraudulent activity.
