Fraud prevention: Growth of analytics tools helps lenders to spot criminal activity


Financial Times

Scott Paton, PA financial services expert, is quoted in the Financial Times The Connected Business special report on banking and IT.

Scott comments in an article on data analytics and fraud prevention. He explains that financial institutions are under pressure from regulators to invest in social network analysis and other readily available data to understand what conversations are taking place, and “where there is contact with people known to be dodgy”.

Scott goes on to explain that investigators can also look at share price fluctuations: “When these are outside the norm, they can see who’s involved, who they’re connected to and what communications are taking place.”
