5 reasons to implement Data Analytics programme for prevention and detection of fraud in your business.
1. Internal control systems have serious control weaknesses
- In order to effectively test and monitor internal controls, organizations need to look at every transaction that takes place and test them against established parameters, across applications, across systems, from dissimilar applications and data sources. Most internal control systems simply cannot handle this.
2. Purpose-built data analytics is light years ahead of manual sampling
- It allows for repetitive continuous analysis. scripts are set-up to run against large volumes of data to identify those anomalies as they occur over a period of time. This can really improve the overall efficiency and consistency and quality of your fraud detection processes. Create, test and run scripts against data so you get periodic notifications when an anomaly occurs in the data.
3. It covers various application areas for fraud detection (Accounts, Inventory Management, HR etc.)
- Fraudsters can and will exploit weaknesses wherever they can find them. Data analysis has proven itself really reliable in fraud detection and prevention in a wide range of areas. Just think about the possibilities for fraud in credit card management! People buying things they’re not supposed to on their corporate credit cards.
4. ROI on fraud findings can be pretty high
- A financial services firm identified a single expense fraud that was high and in excess of 200 instances of abuse in only one month. You must pay attention to even the little stuff on an on-going basis to make sure you can catch it and as a result, become far more efficient and organized.
5. Data Analytics audit logs can be used in courts of law as proof of fraudulent activity
- One of the key aspects of data analytics is the ability for the technology to maintain comprehensive logs of all activities performed. Proof is usually required when a fraudulent activity is discovered. That proof has to be specific and detailed enough to stand up to further fraud investigation, perhaps even prosecution. In many cases the audit log generated by data analytics has been used in courts of law to prove for the prosecution that the activities were performed with fraudulent intent.
