How adidas negotiated the data mining “minefield”: Ken Bohnert, Senior Manager Profit Protection – Global Investigations Operations, adidas Group

ken_bohnert_300pxHow 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.

From static defence to active surveillance: how to overcome online fraud risks: 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 presentation Justin demonstrates how to use active surveillance to overcome retail risks and maximize business revenues.

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.

How a global tier one retailer is leveraging 360-degree smart video and analytics beyond LP: Scott Brothers, Executive Vice President, Corporate Development, Oncam
