Introducing Forensic Analytics with Power BI

Speaker: Bill Pearson

Synopsis:   Despite the wealth of analytical technologies available today, 65% of occupational fraud at public companies is detected through tips, management review, or simple accidents.  Forensic Analytics can change this disappointing scenario by employing a combination of human intuition and leading-edge technologies, and can provide superior detection methods to significantly improve the detection and investigation of illegal or unethical activities.

In this session, we explore Forensic Analytics, a set of techniques we can use to uncover irregularities in financial data. We also gain an understanding of goals of Forensic Analytics: to enable us to find out how — and why — these irregularities exist, and to find out their source(s) — especially when fraudulent activity is suspected.  We discuss guiding principles that are key to effectively and confidently ferreting out data anomalies, and outline a methodology to meet key principles by applying a standard, repeatable process to Forensic Analytics. Throughout the session, we view examples of how we can employ PowerBI to drive Forensic Analytics via various tests and reviews.
