Detecting Fraud with Data Analytics Workshop


According to the ACFE’s Occupational Fraud 2024: A Report to the Nations, proactive data monitoring and analysis are among the most effective anti-fraud controls. Organizations that undertake proactive data analysis techniques experience frauds that are 50% less costly and detect frauds 2 times as quickly as organizations that do not monitor and analyze data for signs of fraud. 

The Detecting Fraud with Data Analytics Virtual Workshop will teach you how to plan, design and apply numerous data analytics tests and examine and interpret the results of those tests to identify the red flags of various fraud schemes.

  • Provide a solid foundation on which to build data analytics initiatives.

  • Properly prepare and normalize data for testing. 
  • Effectively communicate the results of the analysis.
