How we can help

The Evolution of Forensic Investigations - A Series

An analytics driven approach to fighting fraud

Forensic analytics is a critical capability in the future of investigations. Our five-part series explores analytics-driven fraud fighting approach, the need for available and accurate data, technologies required to extract data and realise its value, and continuous monitoring of transactions and activities, a process that produces invaluable results.

Part 1: Integrating human and machine intelligence

Organisations can better identify and investigate attacks, as well as thwart future ones, by combining artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and statistical concepts of cognitive analytics with skilled forensic investigation of fraudster motives and methods. Such an approach can help investigators get to the bottom of the problem quicker and identify the root cause of incidents to improve their sensing capabilities and help prevent re-occurrence.
