Fraud detection through Big data analysis, data mining and machine learning models uses trends, patterns and behaviors to detect and prevent suspicious activities in purchasing processes, credit activities, accounts or transactions, internal and external processes, among others. This makes possible to automatically detect fraud and allow organizations to consolidate, map and normalize large amounts of data that can be effectively analyzed to design strategies that detect and establish connections between anomalous trends, notice a cybernetic attack or mark a security breach.

Here are some of the general benefits of the implementation of fraud analytics in businesses:

  • Identify irregular and unusual patterns, business problems or risk areas where activities or processes may result in fraud. 
  • Saves costs and maximizes revenue.
  • Detects anomalies across channels, comparing data from different information sources to find discrepancies, such as social networks, databases, call centers, etc.
  • Predicts suspicious activity before it causes damage to an organization's assets or goods.
  • It provides an internal view of processes and identifies where there's more opportunity for fraud activities by creating strategies that are better adapted to the operations of a business.
