Mr Warwick Graco
I previously worked in Defence, Health and Revenue Collection. I am semi-retired and spend my time working with others in an analytics shed to explore ideas and to develop innovative products and services to assist with analysis and decision making. One of the shed’s current focal areas is deception and the detection of insider threats in organizations. My interests include analytics, use of digital assessments to measure human capabilities, organizational learning, organizational decision making, and innovation and disruptive change. My specialist skill is digital profiling -i.e. using a combination of machine learning and human judgment to profile people of interest such as fraudsters, security threats, dangerous drivers, captains of industry and political leaders.
