Right to Privacy, Demand for Ethics and Transparency
Nora Boukadid - Data Privacy & Security, Senior Manager EY


Valuable insights can be gained through the gathering and analyzing of citizens data, benefitting both the government and the citizens themselves. However, this requires strict governance of (citizen) data, in compliance with current privacy legislation. What is the current level of privacy management and protection in government? Is the government equipped to secure citizen privacy in adherence with privacy legal and regulatory requirements? Are social and ethically accepted uses of citizen data understood and applied? Is government able to maintain the privacy and security-aware culture required?


Big Data: helping to crack down on Fraud in the Public Sector
Evert Voorn, Capgemini Global Public Sector Thought leader on anti-fraud solutions


Every year, Fraud costs the public sector all around the world hundreds of billions of dollars – money that would be much better spent on schools, hospitals, and services that matter to the public.  And with the ‘opportunities’ provided by the digital world, fraud will only increase – in tax, social benefits, and identity fraud. But one of the solutions lies in leveraging the huge growth in data – the Business Data Lake.


Capgemini has been working with a number of Tax Offices to help them address the challenges of Fraud and Error in a modern digital Tax and Welfare context, and developed a tailored solution based on the SAS Fraud Framework. This innovative solution uses a dynamic combination of  big data and advanced analytics and is a complete, enterprise-scale, proven platform, which can be tailored to meet any department’s needs – to prevent fraud and error before it happens instead of recovery after the fact.


In the presentation we will cover the following topics:

  • Identify and analyze Fraud and Error patterns and behaviors with inbuilt feedback mechanism to improve Debt Management and support proactive improvement campaigns
  • Develop both Upstream prediction and Downstream detection capabilities
