Use of Data Analytics in Security Investigations
Tuesday, June 24th, 2014
8:00 am Breakfast Meeting
Location: HQ-1 VSP HQ - 3333 Quality Dr., Rancho Cordova, CA 95670
In this day and age, no matter where an individual goes, new raw data is being created and collected. A cell phone can be tracked through its Wi-Fi connection as one walks through the mall to alert stores of their shopping patterns. When using a badge to enter a secured building, a transaction is recorded as to the time and location an individual entered. The location of your vehicle is tracked when passing a toll site. Add to this all the data one’s computer or handheld device is recording. From the data collected on an individual’s movements and habits, timelines can be reconstructed not only to aid in an investigation, but to predict future activity based on suspicious patterns.
However, even with convenient access to abundant data, it does not appear as though organizations are successfully taking advantage of analyzing the data for fraud and security measures. Various studies have suggested that 5% or less of all fraudulent or illegal activities are detected through automated software within an organization.
In this course, we will explore how data may be used to aid in the identification of unwanted activity, and also what can be done when there is suspicion that such activity has already occurred. We will discuss real events and the approaches used to better understand them. Areas of discussion will include:
· Identification of data sources;
· Pitfalls of data analytics;
· Methods to improve the accuracy of your analysis; and
· Approaches to aid in anomaly detection.
Who should attend: The session will be directed to all internal auditors (basic/intermediate/advanced).
