Anti Fraud Strategy and Alignment

When it comes to detecting fraud, a number of factors have to align. These factors often include sensitive, high-risk information. An identity and its attributes are always centric to a fraudulent scenario – whether as a perpetrator, a victim, or a mule. Organizations are often overwhelmed with the idea of launching an enterprise-wide anti-fraud program. It involves assimilation of people, processes, and data from various units; and entails proactive methodologies to minimize the impact on customers, services, and other business aspects.
Clango has helped organizations devise methodologies to initiate, develop, and maintain enterprise-wide strategies that align various aspects of Anti-Fraud and Identity Lifecycle Management: Risk Management, Compliance, Operations, Incident Management, and Business Applications.
