We Connect the Risk & Compliance Ecosystem

RiskConnect is the networking conference specifically aimed at the unsung heroes of the payments industry: The risk professionals, compliance officers and anti-fraud experts who routinely ferret out fraudsters and expose dubious businesses.

This year, RiskConnect goes virtual: This November, hours of great keynotes, presentations and panels featuring industry experts will be available online wherever you are and whenever you want.

RiskConnect is organised by Web Shield, one of the leading on-boarding, underwriting and monitoring solution providers.

Luxury in the Heart of Warsaw

RiskConnect celebrated its premiere in Warsaw last year and after resounding positive feedback, the conference will return to the luxurious 5-star Sofitel Warsaw Victoria, located in the heart of Warsaw and surrounded by Polish historic and cultural attractions.

We are convinced you won’t be disappointed: We chose the location for its convenient transportation, sightseeing attractions, and high-end standards.

There have been some great speakers, some great topics, it's very interactive. I think that's fantastic and bringing together the risk professionals in the way it is being done here is hugely positive - and I think we should see more of this sort of thing,

This Organisation and this particular skill that these people have, is one of the most interesting things in speaking I have ever encountered

Carl Bernstein
Pulitzer Prize winning Journalist

For me RiskConnect 2019 was an amazing learning and networking experience! I got ‘The Panama Papers - How the World's Rich and Powerful Hide Their Money’ signed by the journalists that investigated the famous money laundering scandal, two days of insightful presentations, pierogi – a famous Polish dish - and made friends. I will definitely return in 2020!

The Paypers

No doubt, RiskConnect is the right place to get extra knowledge and best practices in the field of revealing and mitigation of risks. Exciting event and great atmosphere of being among like-minded people!

Svitlana Denysenko

RiskConnect is the must-attend event for all Risk Managers, AML Officers and Underwriting Agents in payment companies who seriously care to keep their business and the financial system free from crime and assure consumers' trust when shopping online. The selection of topics and speakers, the variety of guest and last but not least the great hospitality of the host outline its unique standing in the conference map.
