Vendor Master File Fraud Detection and Prevention Using Data Analytics

Case studies to help you understand how to prevent and detect vendor master file (VMF) fraud

Is your vendor master file (VMF) secure against fraud?

Unfortunately in too many organizations, the answer is “no”. In part that is because too many individuals have access to the VMF. The more employees with the authority to access and manipulate the VMF, the greater the risk of fraud from entry of phony/sham vendors … fraudulent alteration of legitimate vendor payment information … abuse of dormant vendor accounts, etc.

This training will provide detailed descriptions of how VMF fraud is perpetrated, together with actual case studies. It will then offers specific, actionable methods for detecting potential or actual VMF fraud using data analytics tools. Live demos of analytics usage in detecting VMF fraud will provide step-by-step guidance for deploying these powerful audit tools.

Finally, you will receive expert insights into the most effective controls against VMF fraud, along with illustrative case studies.
