Driving down debt is a top priority for the UK government. With an £81billion deficit recovering this debt is a cornerstone of the government’s current efficiency and reform agenda.
The Fraud, Error and Debt Taskforce was established in 2010 to address the huge level of UK debt and losses. Focussing on prevention and enforcement, fairness, efficiency and effectiveness the government hopes to tackle the scale and distribution of debt and to develop a collaborative approach to combat this problem. Tackling Fraud and Error in Government: A Report of the Fraud, Error and Debt Taskforce was released in February 2012. The report demonstrates the significant financial benefits that can be made in reducing debt in the public sector.
Fraud Consulting will be speaking at Debt Recovery 2012: Investigation, Enforcement and Collection where the topic of discussion will be “Big Data: How Can We Turn Data into Intelligence to Fight Fraud?”. This session will cover the following items:
- We are in a very data rich world, how can we best utilise data assets to both detect and deter frauds?
- Conducting investigations on the internet; some tips and tools
- Collaboration: The advantages to sharing data across departments and across multiple organisations
- Putting together a successful fraud strategy: A real world case study
