Fraud detection is a classic adversarial analytics challenge: As soon as an automated system successfully learns to stop one scheme, fraudsters move on to attack another way. Each scheme requires looking for different signals (i.e. features) to catch; is relatively rare (one in millions for finance or e-commerce); and may take months to investigate a single case (in healthcare or tax, for example) – making quality training data scarce.
This talk will cover a code walk-through, the key lessons learned while building such real-world software systems over the past few years. We'll look for fraud signals in public email datasets, using IPython and popular open-source libraries (scikit-learn, statsmodel, nltk, etc.) for data science and Apache Spark as the compute engine for scalable parallel processing.
David will iteratively build a machine-learned hybrid model – combining features from different data sources and algorithmic approaches, to catch diverse aspects of suspect behavior:
- Natural language processing: finding keywords in relevant context within unstructured text
- Statistical NLP: sentiment analysis via supervised machine learning
- Time series analysis: understanding daily/weekly cycles and changes in habitual behavior
- Graph analysis: finding actions outside the usual or expected network of people
- Heuristic rules: finding suspect actions based on past schemes or external datasets
- Topic modeling: highlighting use of keywords outside an expected context
- Anomaly detection: Fully unsupervised ranking of unusual behavior
Apache Spark is used to run these models at scale – in batch mode for model training and with Spark Streaming for production use. We’ll discuss the data model, computation, and feedback workflows, as well as some tools and libraries built on top of the open-source components to enable faster experimentation, optimization, and productization of the models.

Today’s IT risk environment is more threatened than ever thanks to the growth in sophisticated cyber attacks and security vulnerabilities. Now, complex, hard-to-detect attacks could bring down not just a single institution but also large parts of the internet and the financial markets. Organizations need an intelligent approach when it comes to assessing IT risk and managing compliance.
Staying safe is no longer just about deflecting attackers. It’s about staying ahead of attackers who are already inside the organization, and banks are doing this through structured lines of defense that enhance security capabilities, involve IT risk managers in operations, and expand internal audits mandate so they can cover business disruption. On this webinar presentation we will address some ways how organizations can as a part of an Integrated Risk Management initiative orchestrate effective IT risk management across the lines of defense.
In today’s threat landscape, traditional approaches to securing data are falling short. Since 2015 we have seen some of the largest data breaches ever and it is clear that no industry or organization is immune from cyber attacks. The threat landscape is increasingly dangerous, while new technologies are distributing sensitive data farther across locations, devices and repositories. Starting in May 2018, enforcement will kick in on the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a move that could have a stronger privacy/security standardization effect than any technological effort has to date. Globalization efforts will make GDPR compliance essential for global companies wherever they are located.
The development of a comprehensive data-centric security program, including data discovery, classification, encryption, and file protection, can uniquely position your organization to protect what matters most, and make security move with your data to comply with global regulations such as GDPR. On this webinar our panel of experts will discuss the key points that you should consider when developing such a program for your organization.
The challenges that organizations face today are increasingly more complex than in the past. The constant change of the global economy, dynamics of business risks and opportunities, and an increased threat of cyber-attacks add complexities we’ve never faced. As organizations rely on more and more third parties to grow and thrive, they’re exposed to higher levels of risk, and regulators are focused on the need for organizations to manage 3rd party risk more effectively.
Manual processes, silos in contract administration, and technology and resource constraints can all lead to significant errors in the third party supply chain that leads to violation of privacy guidelines and security breaches, which cause substantial fines, penalties, and damage to brand value. On this webinar our panel of experts will discuss the risks and repercussions associated with third party contract management shortcomings, common gaps in third party contract management processes, examples of how new solutions and technologies can help organizations optimize their third party processes, and effective strategies for managing 3rd Party Risk.
Data security and the challenge of data protection is increasing in scope and difficulty. The massive volume of data that businesses are collecting is growing exponentially, and managing compliance delivery is a daunting task with huge negative consequences for getting it wrong. While organizations have long needed to safeguard intellectual property and confidential information, changes in information technology and business models introduce new threats, and new regulations. Governments and industry bodies are imposing new regulations to motivate organizations to protect the privacy and confidentiality of information. Responsibilities can vary widely by region and by industry, and staying on top of an ever-shifting regulatory landscape is complex and challenging, but it isn't impossible.
Successful organizations coordinate enterprise-wide regulatory compliance activities with tools to identify and address new and changing regulations, and are able to map the impact of these regulations across the entire infrastructure, and prioritize compliance activities according to business impact. By deploying a consistent, sustainable, scalable and measurable process for managing regulatory change, they are able to eliminate manual, non-scalable and non-strategic activities to reduce the cost and improve the speed of regulatory compliance programs.
On this webinar our panel of experts will discuss the key points to streamline your data-security program and meet regulatory change.
In today’s digital landscape, it’s much easier for criminals to access sensitive payment card data, not only gaining direct access to a consumer’s available funds, but also their personal identity. With cyber attacks becoming much more advanced, the PCI DSS standard has been forced to adapt to address these new threats.
However, PCI compliance is something that any organization can successfully achieve. The requirements of PCI DSS are clear, but it takes work to accomplish compliance across an organization. On this webinar our panel will discuss some best practices, and solutions that provides your business with an easy, cost effective and highly automated way to achieve compliance with PCI DSS in 2017.

Growing exposure to IT risks has made organizations across industries volatile. Recent IT vendor incidents like data and security beaches, violation of privacy guidelines, which caused substantial fines, penalties, brand value, highlight that IT vendor risks are business risks and require focus from the leadership. An immature ITVRM programs limits the insights which are necessary for strengthening vendor relationships and building a robust ERM program. Rather than treating each risk in isolation, organizations need to have an integrated approach to manage risks holistically and in line with their business operations and objectives. With the growing dependency on IT and IT vendors, organizations need to align enterprise and IT VRM objectives to build a resilient framework suitable for today’s environment.
During the session, panelists will discuss how organizations can strengthen vendor management in the current landscape and improve business performance.
- Causes of Vendor Risks incidents and the impact on the enterprise
- Best approach to align IT vendor risk to enterprise risk
- Building mature VRM Program
- Role of technology in integrating Vendor risk to Enterprise risk management
Cyber space is composed of, and dependent on, supply chains. Our hardware and software are created in multiple locations by a multitude of suppliers and vendors. A single PC board may contain chips from many different nations, each with their own companies and manufacturing plant. Software is highly dependent on updates, which we receive mostly automatically and is directly incorporated in the software we depend on daily.
We, as a society are getting more skilled at protecting our technology from cyber-attack by hardening our network perimeters, improving anti-virus/malware tools and encrypting everything we can. The one thing we DO NOT do is evaluate what our cyber supply chain(s) are. We understand their importance to our daily tasks, to our lifestyles, and to our incomes. We need to looking into what our supply chains really are, understand their functionality and investigate ways to begin protecting them.
• Understand the basic nature of cyber supply chains
• Gain insight into cyber supply chain vulnerabilities
• Learn how to begin protecting our cyber supply chains

Organizations are suffering from volatility across all risk types, and in every organization, there are a multitude of applications and devices with threats and vulnerabilities. Every process, function and system has certain risks and compliance requirements, and senior management are being pressured to improve enterprise risk management capabilities.
An organization’s enterprise risk management (ERM) program can be a powerful management tool for achieving strategic and operational objectives, but it can be difficult to maintain and grow over time. If an ERM program is not moving forward it stagnates, so executives need to implement a program that evolves with the times. Implementation has its challenges but there are a range of responses that can be effective for each ERM program challenge. In this webinar our experts discuss these responses and address some of the ways to implement an evolving GRC program that gets boardroom backing.
