Data is transforming the ways governments, companies and civil society detect corruption and fraud. Risk managers, compliance officers and auditors in both governments and companies are using artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytic techniques to identify bad actors and respond quickly with investigations and preventive actions. NGOs and investigative journalists, such as those behind Brazil’s “Lava Jato” case and the Panama Papers, have developed innovative tools to analyse data and bring to the surface hidden patterns of corruption, fraud, waste and abuse. The policies, strategies, infrastructure and skills developed by governments to leverage these new approaches have much in common.
This session will explore the commonalities, as well as success factors and pitfalls to avoid and will offer insights from sectors for creating effective strategies and tools to leverage data and new technologies to fight corruption and fraud.
