FutureLearn: The Data Explosion and its Impact on Fraud Detection

 with  Jeff Rinehart

## Discover how data is helping detect fraud, and learn how to use data yourself

90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years (IBM). This astonishing increase in data is what’s known as the data, or information, explosion and it has fundamentally transformed every sector of the global economy.

But it’s also transformed another area: fraud.

On this course you will learn about how the data deluge has been harnessed to detect fraud in new ways. Plus you’ll master the skills to harness big data yourself - learning how to use data to tell stories and create powerful presentations.

This course is for anyone with an interest in fraud and data, you don’t need any previous experience. It is ideal for anyone considering postgraduate study in the field, such as the online MBA and Masters in Analytics from Kogod.
