Fighting the costly problem of fraud requires a mix of theoretical knowledge and practical skill. Really, can’t have one without the other. Our instructors will help you understand fraud data analytics methodologies and provide you with hands-on instruction to apply IDEA in the right areas.

This course offers a powerful combination of “why” and “how” that will enable you to quickly identify fraud within disbursements and payroll. We begin with proven methodologies for building a fraud data analytics plan, demonstrate how to use IDEA to build tests around the plan, and interpret the results.

Our instructors will share real-world client examples, including real data sets to simulate how they used IDEA to successfully uncover common fraud schemes. Through hands-on instruction, taught at an optimal learning pace, attendees will learn how to:

  • Test, filter and cleanse data to prepare it for analysis
  • Develop search routines within the master file and perform transaction testing
  • Apply data analytics for disbursement and payroll data to search for fraud schemes

Participants will leave this course with a deeper understanding of the methodology behind payroll and disbursement fraud schemes, plus gain proficiency in using IDEA to detect and prevent them.
