Title: Successful Fraud Analytics:  10 Proven Tips for Mining Your Data

Speaker: Steve Biskie, CISA, CGMA, CITP

Description Every organization will be hit by fraud at some point, but many may never know where, when, or how.  This session will provide attendees with specific examples of analytics that can be run against data common systems to identify the red flags of fraud, allowing both internal and external fraud to be identified and stopped before it escalates.  We will explore internal fraud in the disbursements and payroll processes.  We will review common external fraud by vendors and customers.  We will also show how analytics can be used to identify collusion in the contracting and disbursements processes.  Discussion will center around published, real-world fraud scenarios--not abstract generalities.  We will then walk through 10 specific, actionable tips that can enhance fraud data mining processes and reduce the number of false-positives.  This session will focus not just on what is possible, but also on what is achievable and practical.
