Abstract: Corporate fraud these days represents a huge cost to our economy. Academic literature already concentrated on how data mining techniques can be of value in the fight against fraud. All this research focusses on fraud detection, mostly in a context of external fraud. In this paper we discuss the use of a data mining technique to reduce the risk of internal fraud. Reducing fraud risk comprehends both detection and prevention, and therefore we apply a descriptive data mining technique as opposed to the widely used prediction data mining techniques in the literature. The results of using a latent class clustering algorithm to a case company’s procurement data suggest that applying this technique of descriptive data mining is useful in assessing the current risk of internal fraud.
