8:30 a.m. Keynote Presention: Leveraging Social Media to Combat Claim Fraud
As social media proliferates and evolves into new forms, usage continues to increase exponentially. As more and more users broaden their reach into social networks, they’re sharing more and more sensitive and intimate details about their lives, some of which clearly depicts bad behavior. Some even brag about their bold, criminal antics exhibiting new levels of hubris. Some of that bad behavior makes useful evidence of insurance and claim fraud that progressive claim professionals are using in increasingly effective ways to fight claim fraud. In this session you’ll learn how significant a source of investigative information social networks are and some of the latest techniques and tools being used by SIUs to leverage the growing wealth of data from these sources.
