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.

During the two-day conference on 19 - 20 November 2019, thought leaders and industry experts will gather in Warsaw to discuss the newest challenges facing the industry - and provide hands-on knowledge you can use in your daily work.

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

Luxury in the Heart of Warsaw

After two years at the Frankfurt airport, RiskConnect needed a breath of fresh air: that’s why this year’s conference is taking place in 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, really

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

RiskConnect is a highly valuable learning and networking opportunity for any risk professional in the financial services industry and payments value chain.

I would recommend RiskConnect to any Acquirer or PSP seeking to stay up to speed in an environment that is constantly evolving and working through regulatory changes.

RiskConnect gives us the opportunity to network with banks attending the conference and we receive an update on what is going on in the acquiring industry from various perspectives (Card Schemes, Merchants and the Acquirers).

It is my first time attending RiskConnect, but the friendly atmosphere and the people I have met made me feel at home.

Besides the networking opportunity, what I also enjoyed was the quality of the presentations, packed with useful insights for merchants, acquirers, and payments professionals in general. I will definitely come back next year!

White Paper

The Impact of Virtual Addresses on the Money Laundering Risk of Financial Institutions

The use of virtual addresses in connection with shell companies for money  laundering or tax evasion purposes represents a growing phenomenon and has been in the focus of the public eye since the release of the Panama and Paradise Papers.

In this study, Web Shield's CEO and Founder Christian Chmiel summarises the current regulatory situation and analyse a sample of over 53,000 addresses using an early prototype of AdressReveal's methodology.

Read the White Paper and find out more about which jurisdictions are most prone to virtual office use.
