                       forecasts, data mining/analytics and predictive
                       analytics can mean the difference between successful

                       resources. Botsko, CFE managing principal, will discuss

                       Understanding the patterns of fraud, where to find it,
                       how to detect it and deciding when to act are key to
                       combating fraud, waste and abuse. The old pay-and-chase
                       model of fraud management is inefficient and costly.
                       Faulkner and Schweyen will show how to head off crime
                       before it happens and how a proactive fraud management
                       solution can provide real results and significant cost
                       savings.
