Requirement: reduce fraud in short term benefit payments due to sick certificatesStrengths: well defined operational processes, centralized IT system with data collection including sick certificates, well structured organization with roles and responsibilities and dedicated antifraud department which prepared a fraud risk registerWeaknesses: lack of antifraud process and use of data analytics for controlling activities, manual decision process, missing fraud risk quantification and prioritization of suspected events in order to investigate the highest risks first. In consequence no proven calculation of how much fraud really costs the organization. Solution proposed:•Introduction of a separate antifraud process interacting with the operational processes •Introduction of fraud cycle – a feedback loop from the fraud confirmation activity toward the fraud-detection activity. Newly detected cases should be added to the database of historical fraud cases, which is used to learn or induce the detection model•Data analytics at every process stage•Profiling of business process actors in order to associate risk behavior modelling
Requirement: Develop a structured approach to expanding a small businessStrengths: Business owned by a successful entepreneur who is also an experienced salespersonWeaknesses: lack of organisation leading to missed sales opportunities and consequent loss of revenue.Solution proposed:•Construction of a database which can be viewed/updated on Android, Apple and Microsoft hardware.•Development of interactive reports and dashboards which are updated as required•Dashboards to analyse changes in key variables and show e.g.new clients and the salespeople who found them, energy consumed, finance, further sales opportunities with existing clients
Requirement: to build a common, sector-wide fraud risk management platform to be used by banks in order to prevent organized credit fraud crime and avoid insolvent clientsStrengths: centralized credit register for a number of universal and consumer banks which represent significant market share in credit business. Behavioral models for credit risk assessment. Online access to credit reports for all banks.Weaknesses: no cross check algorithms for fraud risk detection because banks did not agree on common data set which might be a subject of data matching analysis. Consequently the credit applications are only checked for credit risk using behavioral models.Solution proposed:•Retrospective test on a number of banks which showed the size and value of the fraud •Preparation of a rule set and design of the antifraud shared-system •Definition of a minimum commonly used data set for application data matching•Storage of all fraud and suspected data records•Ongoing rule improvement methodology based on monitoring results which build learning set for machine learning algorithms.
