One of the challenges in any investigation, regulatory or compliance review, or expert witness assignment is to quickly access and analyse the important data. This challenge is complicated by the fact that the amount of data that organisations’ typically hold grows at a rate of 40% per annum.
In addition, Forensic Data Analytics (FDA) is an extremely helpful technique that can be deployed proactively in the prevention of fraud or reactively during the investigation of fraudulent activities.
FDA is used to assess, manage and mitigate risk within organisations as well as identify possible occurrences of fraud. Investigative techniques and analytics are used to examine data with the aim of identifying anomalies or unusual patterns that could lead to the identification of fraud or the identification of weak internal controls.
We can provide both proactive and reactive Forensic Data Analytics to meet your requirements.
