Uncover Suspicious Activity Among Millions Of Records and Billons of Transactions
Fraud detection and prevention has never been more critical than today. It is estimated that identity theft alone results in billions of dollars of losses each year to individuals and businesses. The insurance and healthcare industries alike must deal with altered billing or falsified claims, with costs running into the tens of billions. The financial services sector must try to deal with money laundering and related crimes. And beyond these costs, failure to comply with evolving government regulations can cost an organization in large fines and harm its reputation.
But effective anti-fraud measures depend on the ability to quickly and accurately identify individuals. . .and the connections between individuals. And that's where many organizations stumble. They can't be confident their systems won't miss a critical match because identity information is simply subject to too many variations and errors—from typos to foreign versions of names, not to mention individuals deliberately masking their identity. And the challenges are simply getting tougher:
- Ever-changing compliance mandates and policies
- Conflicting and disparate data sources
- Balancing resources, risk, and returns
- Increasing volume and sources of watch-lists and enterprise data
Put another way, the challenge is to create a fraud detection system that can accurately track all the ways an individual interacts with the company in order to spot suspicious transactions.
