Analytics in Action: Fraud

Using advanced analytics to combat fraud, corruption, waste, and abuse

The Digital Age has transformed every aspect of business, including how fraud is perpetrated and discovered. Fraudulent activities cost organizations millions of dollars in time and money, while placing proprietary corporate and customer information at risk. Specific data that may indicate illegal, abusive, or corrupt activity is often difficult to detect, increasing the need for advanced analytics techniques to uncover complex, sophisticated schemes and prevent their recurrence. The ability to explore and graphically represent big data (and little data) can bring clarity to pressing corporate concerns, helping to protect vital resources and reputations.

Analytics Answers - Fraud

While fraud can appear as a “faint signal” buried in an organization’s data, its impact can run deep and cross the entire organization.  In the past, companies often chased down fraud after the fact in an attempt to mitigate damage, but today, with the help of data, it’s possible to detect and head off fraud before its full potential impact is achieved.  Deloitte’s Analytics Answers are fraud-focused solutions that can help identify patterns and anomalous behaviors hidden deep in large data sets, in near-real time.  Find out more about our individual fraud-focused analytics solutions here.
