Ex-Accenture man to head KPMG's high-tech fraud unit

Firm appoints head of its forensic technology facility

KPMG’s forensic accounting faculty has appointed Paul Walker as director and
head of its forensic technology facility.

The forensic technology facility will aim to track down the origins of a
fraud after it has been committed, as well as play a role in helping to predict
– and therefore potentially prevent – the commitment of fraud.

Predictive analytics also helps to increase the productivity of forensic
fraud investigators by prioritising their efforts towards the data most likely
to show fraudulent behaviour.

Walker has ten years’ experience gained in cross industry fraud sales,
business development and practice building from Accenture and more recently
Detica.

He will work alongside Nicolas Mallison, who heads up KPMG’s advanced
predictive data analytics unit.

Walker said: ‘The opportunity exists to further build the practice by
developing a combination of technology propositions around traditional fraud
investigation, e-discovery and data driven fraud detection solutions – through
the use of advanced predictive analytics’.
