Training Class:- APPLYING FORENSIC ACCOUNTING TECHNIQUES TO DATA ANALYSIS IN PYTHON AND SQL
Forensic accountants and fraud examiners use a range of techniques to uncover fraudulent journal entries and illegal activities. As data professionals, most of us will never unravel a Bernie Madoff scheme, but we can apply these same techniques in our own environments to learn more about our data. This video will use a combination of SQL Server and the Python programming language to apply these fraud detection techniques and gain a better understanding of your data.
You will learn a variety of techniques to learn enough about your data to draw interesting inferences, starting with the use of basic analytical techniques, including regression analysis. From there, you will learn how to use cohort analysis to find outliers between groups, leading you on a data-driven approach to forensic investigation. Finally, you will review numeric techniques around data set validity, including rules around the distributions of the first and last digits in data sets.
