KC Event Synopsis
Fraudulent transactions are not new.

Data analytics, which searches for patterns of activity, increasingly is used to identify, locate, and recognize fraudulent activity in business transactions.
In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders, assembled by The Knowledge Group, will help businesses and their counsel understand the advantages of using Data Analytics in Fraud Detection and Prevention. Speakers will also offer best practices in ensuring compliance with Data Privacy and Security Laws.
Key topics include:
Data Analytics Role in Fraud Detection and Prevention
Data Analysis: Processes and Challenges
Key Techniques in Audit and Risk Management
Best Fraud Control Practices
Financial Impact of Data Analytics
