Demystifying Data Analytics

September 29th, 2021

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST

The goal of this webinar is to provide a practical primer on how to apply advanced data analytics within your organization to identify misconduct and assess risk. Join three current and former in-house compliance and audit professionals (one turned technologist) as they explore: what good looks like in a data analytics program (from start to finish), and how to achieve it.

The webinar will have three parts:

  • Demonstrations of data analytics approaches that companies have taken
  • Practical advice on how to implement such approaches
  • Clarity on how data analytics can be used for multiple purposes and across multiple functions

The session will simplify and demystify the concept and application of data analytics. Attendees will walk away with a clear roadmap for implementing impactful data analytics in a cost-effective and timely manner.
