                                Presented by: Dana Shults, Travelers Insurance


Insurance fraud is not just a claim problem! Suspicious and fraudulent activity may present at any time throughout the life of a policy, before a claim ever even presents. In light of the new era of low-touch and no-touch claim and policy processes the need for smarter use of data and better front end fraud detection is more important than ever. This presentation will discuss identifying potential suspicious activity at the time of quoting, policy inception and throughout the life of the policy. The course will provide red flags to be aware of, customer behaviors to understand and the data and partnerships that are essential to being effective in the underwriting space. Being in a position to identify exposures early puts you in a position to positively affect the book of business.
