This is what bro you gave me to post in week 5 based on this we need to write paperIntroductionAccording to a 2014 ACFE report, organizations lose 5% of revenues each year to fraud. The bigger the company, the more vulnerable to fraud it seems to be. Another survey by PWC reported that the average financial damage experienced produced due to fraud was the US $1.7 million by the company. Not only fraud affects companies economically but it also makes a psychological impact on them. Reputation and trust of customers and partners get heavily diminished whenever they get involved in fraud. Even if the company can be redeemed for the fraudulent act, emotional shock produced in their clients can go away so easily.Also, fraud can occur without being noticed, we can think of this to be even more dangerous. As technology constantly evolves, fraudulent methods also do, and detection of fraudulent transactions becomes harder. Traditional methods for fraud detection such as internal controls and external audit have become archaic and the appearance of modern techniques turns out to be necessary.In this fashion, this paper reviews successfully applied data mining techniques for fraud detection and prevention. Technical details are reviewed at the deepest way possible and interesting conclusions can be inferred from it, such as general methodology for fraud detection and prevention, the kind of industry where this problem occurs and so on.OverviewAs mentioned above, this paper objective is to review current knowledge from recent academic and industrial research of data mining techniques for fraud detection and prevention. Fraud is hereby defined as a deception to achieve unjust gains and its very basic components and elements are going to be reviewed on this paper. Information regarding fraudsters profile and target industries is also addressed. There is also the difference between internal and external fraud, and why the former is the most important to detect and prevent. This paper also pretends to encounter both traditional and new methods for fraud detection, one of them being the use of algorithms to identify patterns in big loads of gathered data, which by the way sets to be the perfect definition for data mining.Some of the techniques reviewed include decision trees, neural networks, and Bayesian belief networks. Methods are expected to be compared and described the best possible way, so then the best conclusions can be attained. We can foresee two main classifications among all of these methods; supervised and unsupervised. The former uses the aid of labels to identify potential patterns whereas the latter does not. The important role of supervised learning in data mining should be also mentioned as well. Regardless of what method is used, it is worth to be mentioned that the results of data mining techniques only state the likelihood of an operation to be fraudulent since there is no way to know for sure whether a transaction is going to be a fraud.Although one of the main challenges faced when applying data mining to fraud detection is the lack of data for experimental runs, this paper pretends to adopt an analytical approach to attack this problem and therefore find the best solution for overcoming it. More specific topics for research opportunities regarding data mining for fraud detection must be also reviewed and take into consideration for conclusions. One example of these topics is the research of data mining techniques for detecting asset misappropriation. Also, there are other problems not necessarily related to business that share similar characteristics with fraud and therefore can use the same techniques of data mining for its solution. These applications will also be mentioned and taken into consideration for conclusions. Examples are Terrorist Detection, Financial Crime Detection, Intrusion and Spam Detection, among others.References:Arwa Abu Shmais, R. H. (n.d.). Data Mining for Fraud Detection.
