Graph and Entity Resolution Against Cyber Fraud

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

With the growing prevalence of the internet in our daily lives, the risks of malware, ransomware, and other cyber fraud are rising. The digital nature of these attacks makes it very easy for fraudsters to scale by creating thousands of accounts, so even if one is identified, they can continue their attacks.
In this blog post, we will discuss how graph and entity resolution (ER) can help us battle these risks across different industries such as healthcare, finance, and e-commerce (for example, the US healthcare system alone can save $300 billion a year with entity resolution).

Detecting Complex Fraud Patterns with ArangoDB

Detecting Complex Fraud Patterns with ArangoDB

Introduction

This article presents a case study of using AQL queries for detecting complex money laundering and financial crime patterns. While there have been multiple publications about the advantages of graph databases for fraud detection use cases, few of them provide concrete examples of implementing detection of complex fraud patterns that would work in real-world scenarios. 

This case study is based on a third-party transaction data generator, which is designed to simulate realistic transaction graphs of any size. The generator disguises complex financial fraud patterns of two kinds: 

  • Circular money flows: a big amount of money is going through different nodes and comes back to the source node.
  • Indirect money transfers: a big amount of money is sent from source node to a target node over a multi-layered network of intermediate accounts.
