Fraud detection remains one of the most popular and fastest-growing big data use cases—billions of dollars are lost in both operational costs and losses. As a leading provider of business services, Symcor’s digital and data services teams embarked on an aggressive fraud detection and prevention initiative. This required a careful balance of automation and agility, along with comprehensive data governance to ensure an ethical but democraticized use of data for fraud prevention.
