Fraud Analytics with SAS®: Special Collection
Foreword by Bart Baesens
Current thinking in fraud detection is moving away from the silo approach and recognizing the need for a more proactive and holistic approach to data and analytics. An isolated event may be flagged as suspicious, but without a complete view of the interplaying relationships, the investigator might ignore it.
SAS software provides many different techniques to monitor in real time and investigate your data, and several groundbreaking papers have been written to demonstrate how to use these techniques. Topics covered illustrate the power of SAS solutions that are available as tools for fraud analytics, highlighting a variety of domains, including money laundering, financial crime, and terrorism.
