Launching a successful data analytics project requires asking three critical questions, says Maryam Hussain, partner, forensic and integrity services, at Ernst & Young in the U.K.
Those questions, she says, are: "What are the risks you are looking to manage? What information do you need? And what signals and sensors would you want to put into that information and data?"
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Hussain also discusses:
- Common data analytics missteps;
- How to begin the data analytics journey;
- How data analytics can help identify fraud.
Hussain, partner, forensic and integrity service, at EY in the U.K., has been investigating fraud and corruption in the public and private sector for more than 20 years. She has led diverse investigations in 23 countries.
