2014-02-20 12:56:17 - SMi’s Using Big Data to Detect and Reduce Fraud masterclass - hosted by Fraud Consulting will take place on the 9th April in London

With the UK public sector losing £20.6 billion a year to fraud - equivalent to more than a third of total spending by the Department for Education - global business analytics leader SAS has called on the sector to enforce its zero tolerance approach to the problem by harnessing the power of big data. Big data analytics have been highly effective in preventing losses through fraud, including detection of organised crime. The Belgium government for example has been combatting carousel fraud. An advanced analytics technique was used to expose even the hardest-to-find fraudsters. With this approach, the Belgian government saves nearly 1 billion euros each year – a reduction in fraud losses of nearly 98 per cent.
