At FRAUDtalks he will emphasize on the role of data for claims and SIU departments. Bringing to bear the full resource of the carrier to view a potential fraud event and confirm or deny the event in less time, with less resource and less touch. The end result? More meaningful time spent on tasks that need attention.
Jeffrey will share how insurance professionals can utilize data as of today. There are a numbers of ways depending on how you choose to use your data. Is this off the shelf, home-grown or are you bringing in a consulting company to custom design a process? Regardless, it begins with -and it can begin as most things do in insurance- the application.

Several years ago, award-winning writer and stand-up comedian Bennett Arron was in serious debt. He owed thousands of pounds to phone companies, banks and department stores. Only it wasn’t him. Bennett was a victim of Identity Theft – and one of the first major victims of the crime in the UK. This theft resulted in Bennett becoming penniless and homeless.
Years later, Bennett wrote, directed and presented the Television Documentary “How To Steal An Identity” in which he stole the identity of the Home Secretary. The Documentary was described as ‘Fascinating and Disturbing’ and was ‘Pick of The Week’ in all the major press. Bennett was subsequently shortlisted for a BAFTA – and arrested in a dawn raid by Scotland Yard.
Bennett now comes to FRAUDtalks to tell his disturbingly true yet funny account of what it’s like to have your identity stolen and revealing the devastating consequences of making a documentary ‘in the public interest’.
