Fraud Analyst

San Antonio, Texas Information Technology

The Analyst, Fraud Prevention and Audit will be responsible for establishing an internal fraud function which will identify fraud risks, recommend and implement preventative and detective controls, manage all fraud-related risks across operations and support teams, and monitor key controls for the detection and continuous audit of fraud risks.  

The Fraud Prevention and Audit function will tactically:

  1. Observe and document the operations of each campaign in process walkthroughs, identifying the key transactions of value to a fraudster, the relevant controls points within the procedures and systems access rights, any segregation of duties (SOD) deficiencies and the associated fraud risks.
  2. Work with Operations management and TaskUs clients to plan for the best business case to accept risks, implement internal controls to negate the risky processes, or apply mitigating controls to reduce risks to acceptable levels.  
  3. Identify key transaction points that can be monitored and regularly audited for fraud detection.

Upon the formation of this Fraud function, initial priority will be given to the biggest campaigns, those which have had recent fraud, or those which have registered high fraud risks per the self-assessments completed by Operations management.  Ultimately, every campaign will be subject to a fraud prevention/detection audit and the respective control improvements implemented (or at least documented for client acceptance/deference).  Additionally, this fraud prevention/detection audit process will be built into every new campaign implementation (or just after launch) in order to proactively address any fraud risks.
