On-demand Webinar

From State Actors to Single Mothers - Fraudsters are as diverse as the rest of us

Duration: 45mins

About the webinar

Fraud is a multi-facetted threat both across the public sector and within a single organisation. From deliberate error to organised crime there is no one methodology that can be used to tackle all fraud typologies.

If we accept this as the reality, then

  • How do organisations apply tactical solutions and yet maintain a coherent strategy?
  • How do they ensure that the individual models are fair and that combined there is no discrimination?
  • How do organisations manage the large number of models, consistently monitoring performance, challenging poor performers and applying machine learning?
  • How structuring is a technological solution and how do you modify the organisation to use advanced analytics?
  • What type of advice would you give an organisation to initiate a fraud detection journey?

This session will look at the underlying challenges of multi discipline fraud disruption and methods to deal with them.
