Data Analytics for Fraud Detection (AUDT8915)

Hands raised.

Data Analytics for Fraud Detection


This seminar is a condensed, quick paced overview of the principles, tools, techniques, and applications of data analytics to support forensic investigative work in detecting possible fraud. Large amounts of electronic data present an enormous challenge and opportunity to identify trends, correlations, activity, risks, red flags of possible fraud, and otherwise hidden anomalies, or association connections. This seminar will demonstrate the application of software and case studies to demonstrate the power of available tools to extract, sort and identify specific information from databases and the cloud. This seminar will also demonstrate approaches to displaying and visualizing data for reporting and evidential presentation.

For the virtual version, students must have Excel-with the Data Analysis ToolPak activated (this is included with Excel software).
