When it comes to fraud, enterprise data has a story to tell, and it's up to security and fraud leaders to know how to interpret that story. Jim Apger of Splunk discusses reading and reacting to these stories.

- The technologies and tools needed to recognize fraud in your environment;
- Tips on spotting anomalous behavior;
- Strategies and best practices for using machine data and an analytic-driven platform.
Apger, senior security architect at Splunk, is a 20-year veteran of the tech industry who is focused on security and fraud as a member of Splunk's global security specialists team.
