About the Experts

Carl Hammersburg
Sr. Manager, Gov't and Healthcare Risk and Fraud, Global Security Intelligence Practice
SAS Canada

Carl manages the Government and Healthcare Risk and Fraud team at SAS.  He joined SAS in 2012, following 22 years in government, working for the State of Washington.  

In his time with SAS, Carl has worked with government executives and elected officials in a dozen countries on fraud and risk in healthcare, public assistance programs, tax, unemployment, workers’ compensation and a range of other programs.   

Carl’s career started in government health care, then moved to the Department (Ministry) of Labour, where he spent 20 years in tax collection, auditing, claim and provider fraud prevention in a multi-billion dollars workers’ comp program.  In his last 8 years, he formed and ran a new division covering all anti-fraud and compliance efforts at the Department.  With a focus on data sharing and use of analytics for detection, audits doubled, investigations tripled, and the program exceeded a $10:1 ROI for all efforts.  Those results received national recognition, and awards from two successive administrations in Washington.

Carl holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from the University of Washington.
