"Data analytics must be used in order to look for trends, patterns and analysis as well as red flags of fraud. You need to look for activities that are unexpected or happening at strange times," she says.

  • Fraud trends that are on the rise;
  • Tools to tackle insider fraud;
  • How to defend against fraud in a hybrid work environment.
