Forensic Data Analytics Senior Data Scientist, London

With high-profile corporate fraud and regulatory non-compliance cases at the forefront of the news, it is more important than ever for businesses to maintain the authoritative knowledge it takes to investigate, detect, prevent and monitor for risks.
