This chapter discusses the latest innovations in fraud detection, with a particular focus on insider fraud and organized fraud. It argues that as fraud continues to grow at an alarming rate across the financial services sector, the constant evolution in fraudster behavior means that financial institutions need to keep their technology-based countermeasures constantly updated, particularly given the increasing involvement of serious organized criminals. In addition to upgrading their current operational detection systems, this chapter aims to encourage organizations to improve current levels of data and information assurance in order to ensure the generation of high quality intelligence on the enemy, and to adopt a structured framework for better understanding and describing exactly what we mean by “intelligence.”
