In 2015, Western Union set out to gain visibility into the information security measures implemented at each Agent Location around the world. Erik Miller was tasked in building out a program designed to analyze each location, utilizing fraud data, terminal/computer information, and transactional information. With over 500,000 locations, the task was not simple. Totaling well over 4 million records from 5 different systems, the process initially took over 100 hours per month, making it unsustainable. Using Alteryx, Erik was able to take a 100 hour process and turn it into a 5 ½ minute workflow, with only a 2 ½ hours development timeframe. Now leading a team of analysts, Erik is taking the project forward to develop a strategic security analytics program designed to assess the risks posed to Western Union by malicious insiders, hackers, and uninformed users. In this session, Erik will cover how with Alteryx at the core, the Security Analytics team is building out an extensive risk analytics program covering multiple threat vectors across Western Union's environment. He will also share why Alteryx has become the must have tool at the center of this team's success.
