SAS Seminar Session

Fraud is a multi-facetted threat both across the public sector and within a single organization.  From deliberate error to organised crime there is no one methodology that can be used to tackle all fraud typologies.

If we accept this as the reality, then

  • How do organisations apply tactical solutions and yet maintain a coherent strategy?
  • How do they ensure that the individual models are fair and that combined together there is no discrimination?
  • How do manage that large number of models, consistently monitoring performance, challenging poor performers and applying machine learning?

This session will look at the underlying challenges of multi discipline fraud disruption and methods to deal with them.
