Fraud Detection and Prevention

Fraud is big business. It is a global, cross-industry and growing issue. Indeed, many companies expect to lose roughly 5 % of revenue to fraud each year, and even worse than the monetary loss that fraud incurs is fraud’s toll on customer trust and a company’s reputation.
Online Banking

  • Global Telecommunication fraud is estimated at more than $40 billion per year.
  • Losses from Online Banking fraud rose by 48% in 2014 compared with 2013 as consumers increasingly conducted their financial affairs on the internet.



Fraud detection is about connecting the data points to discover potential fraudulent behaviour before it happens. This starts with finding interactions between products, locations, and devices and then mapping those data points to individual users, customers, and/or employees. This approach effectively connects together vast quantities of knowledge with all of the people who somehow interacted with that knowledge.



CalcIn the Insurance industry at least 10 % of all insurance claims are inflated or fraudulent – costing the industry as much as €30 billion annually.

Detecting insurance claims with greater certainty, streamlining claims processing and making claims reviews more productive is exigent. Insurers are interested in questions like:

  • Are they getting the desired ROI?
  • How much fraud is being uncovered
  • How much loss is avoided
  • How much time is saved?

Predictive analytics technology helps you to instantly determine which claims qualify for immediate approval, flag suspicious claims for follow up and discover which customer behaviour is potentially fraudulent.
