Key focus areas

FRAUD AND ABUSE

Whether it’s responding to a coordinated or opportunistic attack, or developing a broader strategy to address issues related to fraud, piracy or abuse, FiveBy will work with you to find the optimum solution.

COMPLIANCE AND DUE DILIGENCE

The consequences of disregarding sanctions compliance and other financial regulations are significant and can affect a company’s reputation, privileges and bottom line. FiveBy can provide the support clients need to meet those compliance requirements.

Our Expertise

DATA AND INSIGHTS PRACTICE
FiveBy has unique data and insights expertise when it comes to fraud and abuse, compliance and due diligence. We know how and where to find the data, how to interpret the data, and how to correlate the data to provide insights that expose areas of fraud and risk. We can then provide recommendations, reporting, and dashboarding that helps our clients address problems before they occur.

PMO PRACTICE
Sound PMO methods are critical to the success of every engagement FiveBy does. Project management provides the ‘connective tissue’ aligning resources and driving progress to agreed goals. Often when first working with a client, we find perceptions of fraud and risk differ across teams – we’re able to connect the dots and build sustainable and effectiveness processes and programs – whether building programs from scratch, or delivering improvements for existing processes.

Typical projects FiveBy has done over the years include:

  • Delivering an end-to-end solution to address software piracy at a major global software firm—including market analysis and segmentation, development of the engineering solution, program management, go-to-market planning and launch.
  • Building new anti-fraud capabilities for a major gaming platform provider including new security measures that enabled them to respond to coordinated and opportunistic attacks on their platform, thereby decreasing instances of fraud, chargebacks and associated activity.
  • Implementing a fully managed solution for a US tech giant to provide sanctions due diligence research, including deep-dive analysis on possible sanctions evaders, assessments of evasion methodologies, and sanctions policy analysis to protect the company from illicit actors and regulatory risk.
