As the volume of data grows and the industry focuses more closely on detection, analytics has evolved to provide proactive, real-time insights into fraud behaviors and activities. The goal is to develop solutions that incorporate these predictive techniques along with the continuous monitoring of data collected at large financial institutions. By applying analytics to financial data within a proactive framework, fraud can be prevented, detected, and mitigated to better manage financial risk.

Deloitte’s advanced analytics team partnered with a large Canadian bank to exchange ideas, resources, and subject matter expertise. This paper, a collaborative product of that partnership, looks at the impacts of fraud, at challenges in the current fraud landscape and at the ways in which new analytics solutions are reducing risk and improving financial security.
