Organizations who undertake proactive data analysis techniques experience frauds that are 60% less costly and 50% shorter than organizations who do not monitor and analyze data for signs of fraud.

Taking a software-independent approach, this two-day course provides numerous data analytics tests that can be used to detect various fraud schemes.
