More than 2000 years ago Plato mused that if you know what you are looking for enquiry is unnecessary, and if you don’t know what you are looking for enquiry is impossible. This is all the more relevant today as fraud and insider threat are on the rise as more employees work from home. But knowing this and being able to do something about it are two totally different things. Fraud analysis and corporate threat are two problems fundamentally centred on identifying the unknown. But where do organisations begin looking and what do they look for? Hear how FACT360 is helping HR teams to find hidden intelligence to combat this – and to help find the real influencers in their organisations.
