DIIR Anti-Fraud-Conference 2014

On 10 and 11 March, in cooperation with dab:Software, the dab:Group was present on the 5th DIIR - Anti-Fraud Management Conference in Munich as silver sponsor. This conference enjoys increasing popularity and was attended by 341 participants this year. The slogan "Internal auditing and security meet compliance" seems to have met the current demand of the companies.

Conversations at our booth have shown the predominant satisfaction of the participants with the presentations at the conference.

The presentation "balancing act to obtain information through the economy," was delivered via a refreshing dialogue between Mr. Eck and Mr. Rakowski. The required legal contents of the four acts were summarized illustratively from Mr. Dr. Pörtge. Mainly, they have shown detective and analog approaches. However, obtaining information on the internet was not given enough focus from my point of view.

SAP® AG did an interesting presentation called "Efficient tools for the detection and analysis of fraud - the practice at SAP". Mr. Waag illustrated the anti-fraud control in the SAP® Group itself and how such fraudulent operations were identified. He also mentioned a graphic from the " Association of Certified Fraud Examiners”:

The key message was that only 1% of fraud cases are uncovered by using IT-analyzes. This was also used by SAP® AG as an opportunity to integrate new technical analysis applications. The subsequent pre-led software made ​​a modern impression and provided a graphically enhanced result. The system is also capable of "learning", but remains manually adjustable. Sadly the presentation remained at a high level and therefore no precise conclusions about the quality of the results could be made.

From my point of view, 1% identified fraud cases by IT tools can also be attributed to the fact that often the need for technical aids is not recognized combined with a lack of companies to support these opportunities. The Playing field is changing as the topic of "Big Data" increases awareness and therefore analysis tools for anti-fraud detection move into the spotlight. This gives hope that it does not remain at the stated 1% and the interest of such tools rises.

In conclusion it can be stated that "anti-fraud" is a still an emerging field and the 5th DIIR - Anti-Fraud Management Conference was successful.
