Insights from Fraud Analytics Research focusing on the Insurance Industry

Insurance fraud accounts for billions of dollars of lost funds each year to both the insurance companies and also the additional premiums charged to policyholders. Finding ways to detect and respond to insurance frauds is critical within the industry and has wider implications to other areas as fraud detection models are refined and used.

Please join us on 3 June 2021 to hear Dr Adrian Gepp and Lucy Ward discuss insurance fraud detection and fraud detection models that are assisting in preventing fraud in this area.
