How adidas negotiated the data mining “minefield”: Ken Bohnert, Senior Manager Profit Protection – Global Investigations Operations, adidas Group
How do you choose the right data mining tool? How do you roll it out across your estate most effectively and with the minimum disruption? And what previously unforeseen challenges are you likely to face?
Ken Bohnert of adidas explains the steps they took to choose and roll out their data mining capability on a global basis. This frank account of the challenges they faced, both during and after implementation, together with the real life examples of the successes they have had, provides invaluable insight for all retailers; whatever stage of the data mining journey they are presently at.
The presentation also provides a tantalising peep “under the bonnet” of how one of the world’s leading brands determines and implements a global risk and loss prevention strategy. This is a shining example of retailers openly sharing experiences for the common good.
Bribery and Corruption “The Unspoken Topic” in the retail sector: Saket Bhartia, Executive Director, Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services, EY
Most of the global surveys on bribery and corruption generally keep the retail industry low on bribery and corruption. However, the vulnerability of this sector is very high, especially for global companies operating in the Asia Pacific region. This session will help you understand the emerging areas and “innovative” methods used in some of these countries for bribery and corruption and how to mitigate them.

The new live and interactive Global Risk Survey comes to Singapore: Paul Bessant, founder, Retail Knowledge
Be among the first to take part – and benefit from – the Survey. Since 2011 Retail Knowledge’s surveys of retailers primarily in the US, UK and Australia have become an indispensable tool for the industry to benchmark operations and find practical ways to beat fraudsters. Now the survey is going global, real time and widening its remit to cover the risk arena – to produce the most timely, accurate and relevant material ever available on all aspects of retail risk.
Using latest polling technology, the survey canvasses information from delegates at the conference and publishes the results in real time at the event. The material is then compiled into a detailed report.
Overcoming online fraud risks by moving from static defence to active surveillance: Justin Lie, CEO and Founder, CashShield
There have been more and more high profile database breaches and cyberfraud attacks in recent years, especially on the retail sector. Merchants also face risks from payment fraud, account takeovers and promo abuse. Meanwhile the rise of FinTech has also contributed to more potential breach points in online fraud. As the need for fraud prevention in the retail sector heightens, the use of static defence is becoming obsolete and vulnerable to newer and more sophisticated attacks. In this masterclass Justin demonstrates how to use active surveillance to overcome retail risks and maximize business revenues.
More about Justin…
As a student, Justin was already an entrepreneur, setting up various e-commerce sites. It was when his sites were attacked by fraudsters that Justin devised his own system of rules on whether to accept or reject a transaction, which would later develop into the more sophisticated CashShield system today. Despite facing competition from major players that are mostly backed by credit card companies with unlimited war chests, Justin has navigated CashShield through countless challenges with zero funding. Eventually, CashShield was launched globally with huge success, making it the leading provider of optimized fraud management solutions.
