Workshop C: Combining risk management techniques and data analytics and data matching

Post Conference Workshop C: Combining risk management techniques and data analytics and data matching

 Friday 28 July 2017 | 13.00 – 16.00

Many organisations struggle to implement effective fraud risk management processes because the disparate functions of risk management, internal control and assurance are not integrated to combat the risk of fraud. Bringing the functions of risk management, internal audit, fraud, internal control frameworks and assurance under the leadership of the Chief Risk Officer has enabled the Ministry of Defence to implement an integrated framework to manage the risk of fraud.

The workshop will explain the key initiatives delivered under the integrated framework, challenges faced and how the framework is being embedded into the business processes. It will be an open, interactive session which will also allow participants to learn from each other’s experience. Among the topics covered will be:

  • Using risk management to focus senior management attention and using risk management at business process level to integrate fraud risk and controls into the overall control and assurance framework.
  • Developing assurance strategies including use of data analytics and data matching with practical examples.
