Business Analytics and Compliance Initiatives

Course Overview
Data is all around us, and more often than not, there is too much data surrounding our everyday lives. The question often becomes, what to do with all this information? How can it be used or discarded? How can it minimize the risk of cyberattacks? Is there an underlying benefit in all this data by turning it into revenueproducing actions? Risk analysis is often considered more of an art than a science. Russell Safirstein, Partner in Charge at Anchin Digital Risk Solutions discusses business analytics and compliance initiatives.
