SAS Executive Business Forum Series presents

Protect Yourself from the Black Swan

Moving from tactical to strategic to protect yourself against the unexpected

Financial institutions worldwide are confronted by an explosion of financial crime affecting their business. The sheer magnitude of losses is a clear signal that financial criminals are growing ever more sophisticated, more organized, and better at exploiting vulnerabilities in new electronic channels.

Unfortunately, many of us remain focused on short-term, tactical patches to the strategic problem of detecting and preventing financial crime. While quick fixes may patch a current hit, they’re unlikely to be effective against future attacks, including the unforeseen “Black Swan” event that can severely damage an organization. 

What can you expect?

Join us this executive forum and learn:

  • How you can strategically fight fraud through the use of analytics
  • How you can connect the dots from day one by creating multiple levels of detection that use different analytical techniques to identify both known and unknown threats
  • How you can use your existing data along with analytics to prevent your organization becoming the next  target of fraud
