    Design thinking is a methodology for tackling complex problems that have large degrees of uncertainty. The process involves reframing problems in human-centric ways and adopting a hands-on approach to prototyping and testing solutions. The design-thinking approach is well-suited to designing anti-fraud programs and solutions, and allows teams to quickly understand threats and develop solutions. In this session, you'll learn what design thinking is, how it applies to fraud prevention and detection analytics, and see real-world examples of how it is being employed by organizations to develop impactful analytics.

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Assess the design-thinking process
    • Apply design thinking to your own anti-fraud programs
    • Compare how other organizations apply design thinking in their anti-fraud programs
