Audio Improper Payments

March 3, 2021

Improper payments have been a persistent challenge for the public sector. Payments during COVID-19 were particularly vulnerable. While not all organizations can harness and use their data, some have increasingly seen the importance of adopting a data-oriented mindset. Moreover, as the exploration of emerging technology like Machine Learning, blockchain and AI accelerates, governments and industry alike are seeing how the convergence of data and emerging technologies can balance speed with accuracy to reduce improper payments and achieve friction-less payments. The discussion will focus on these best practices and examine use cases that improve payment integrity.

Audio Cybersecurity

March 24, 2021

The current environment has resulted in significant changes in the way business is conducted, education is provided, and how we live our lives — all facilitated by the increased use of technology.  While the evolution and sophistication of technology has benefitted society, it has also increased risks and vulnerabilities that are being exploited by cybercriminals. Telework and virtual learning have further widened the cyberattack footprint and augmented concerns for risk management and privacy.
