For most people, this time of year means celebrating cherished, personal traditions… helping those less fortunate…flocking to stores in droves…the company holiday party…
For the SAS Security Intelligence team, it means identity theft…benefits fraud…unemployment insurance fraud...insider threats. Why? Because next week is International Fraud Awareness Week! And we’re celebrating by going on a blogging binge.
Everyday next week, Monday to Friday, a member of the team will write about a particular fraud topic. Take a look at the line-up below.
Carl Hammersburg is like the kid that can’t wait to open his presents so he peaks under wrapping paper and whines until he gets one present early. We let him have two. He posted two fraud blogs already this week! Check out his round-up of fraud news and his take on the Medicaid fraud epidemic.
Enjoy those then come back on Monday for more great fraud content. You can also follow the conversation all week on Twitter through #FraudWeek.
Monday: Still chomping at the bit, Carl will tell us about schemes in unemployment insurance claims and tax evasion.
Tuesday: Shaun Barry writes about the hidden connection between prescription drug abuse and fraud.
Wednesday: Ricky Sluder will discuss data mining as a valuable weapon in a Medicaid Fraud Control Unit’s fight against health care fraud.
Thursday: John Stultz questions whether the popular demand for “predictive analytics” misguides our efforts to detect fraud.
Friday: Jen Dunham will tell us about “The enemy within: When trusted access turns into insider threat”
