Fraud Detection and What We Can Learn from the Panama Papers — Dr. Jesús Barrasa, Neo4j

18 May, 2017

Slides for this talk: A year ago, the ICIJ publicly released the Panama Papers. What lessons have we learned for modern fraud detection? Traditionally, fraud prevention focuses on discrete data points and detection of outliers. However, today’s sophisticated fraudsters escape detection by collaborating in groups and being locally indistinguishable from other users, which is why it is essential to look beyond individual data points to the connections that link them. In this talk, we will see how enterprise organisations use Neo4j to augment existing fraud detection capabilities to combat a variety of financial crimes including first-party bank fraud, credit card fraud, ecommerce fraud, insurance fraud and money laundering.
