Today’s fraudsters are smart, sophisticated and technologically savvy.  To effectively combat their ever-changing schemes, government entities must use new tactics that are equally sophisticated.

This webinar explores how a cross-program, enterprisewide approach to fraud detection and prevention can significantly increase the Special Investigative Unit's ability to thwart schemes that may otherwise go undetected using traditional program-centric methods.

You'll learn:

  • Why an enterprise approach to fraud detection and prevention is critical in today's environment.
  • How enterprise data assets can assist in identifying fraud and improper payments.
  • How to navigate the technical, regulatory and cultural challenges inherent in data sharing.

Senior Solutions Architect, Government Fraud
Fraud and Financial Crimes Practice

Carl Hammersburg joined SAS in early 2012 after spending 20 years in anti-fraud activities for Washington state's exclusive workers' compensation insurer, the Department of Labor and Industries. In 2004, Hammersburg formed that agency's comprehensive fraud program, covering premium tax audits, claim investigations, provider fraud and collections. Data-sharing and investigative partnerships with other state and federal agencies, as well as driving public availability of information and awareness, served as cornerstones to the program's anti-fraud activities.

Under Hammersburg's stewardship, audit and investigative activities doubled and outcomes tripled, based on a focus on data mining and predictive analytics that improved efficiency and case selection. Program success under his leadership drew awards from two successive governors of Washington state. In his final year with the state, the program collected more than $148 million, with a return on investment of more than $8 for every $1 spent.
