The true merit of link analysis graphs is that they are reusable for additional organizational functions.
To be effective for link searching or link analysis, tools need to meet several requirements.
When a search engine is searching for a Web page to meet the user's request, two major factors are considered: one is the score based on the similarity between the user request and the Web page content or the relevance between the Web page and the user's query, and the other is the score obtained through the link analysis algorithm or the importance of the Web page.
The technologies studies are touch screen, rotary controller, and remote controller, and the methods whose use are demonstrated are checklists, critical path analysis (CPA), heuristics, hierarchical task analysis (HTA), interviews, layout analysis, link analysis, observation, questionnaires, repertory grid, systematic human error reduction and prediction approach (SHERPA), task analysis for error identification (TAEI), and utility analysis.
The tool to use in this scenario is link analysis. Through link analysis you can identify key players, friends, relationships and geo tagging information.
Lenders should consider the use of link analysis software and analytics, such as the CoreLogic PatternWatch[R] (www.corelogic.com/landing-pages/fraud-and-riskconsulting-services.aspx#container-engagementsolutions), to search for patterns and linkages that identify the fraud patterns and expose fraud rings.
The challenge, however, is that most carriers still use only basic tools such as automated red flags, link analysis and claims scoring.
"In particular, fraud prevention systems that provide user or account behavioural profiling and entity link analysis are useful in these cases."
Many financial institutions have found the most successful way to rapidly detect and effectively prevent fraud is by creating a central data analysis environment and applying advanced statistical, entity resolution--and link analysis that can spot trends, patterns and anomalies that could be potential fraud indicators.
Link analysis and geospatial analysis can be particularly useful in uncovering red flags of which of the following types of schemes?
There are also other approaches that Minotaur uses like neural predictive analytics, behavioural modelling , link analysis and identity matching techniques that provide several stage detection processes, delivering accurate fraud detection and low false positives.
