The Global Anti Scam Summit 2022

9th & 10th of November | The Hague Security Delta & Online

Online scams are the most reported type of crime. Most countries now state that between 20% to 30% of all crimes reported are related to online fraud. This is only the tip of the iceberg, as only 7% of all scam victims report the crime to law enforcement. With nearly $50 billion lost last year and an expected growth of 40%, new ways have to be found to turn this tide.

 

On the 9th and 10th of November 2022, the 3rd Global Anti Scam Summit (GASS) is being held. The goal of the GASS is to help governments, consumer & financial authorities, law enforcement, brand protection agencies, and commercial organizations share knowledge and insights on fighting online scams and define concrete actions to combat online fraud more effectively and efficiently. 

 

In 2021, we had nearly 500 virtual guests from 70+ countries. This year the event will be organized in a hybrid style, with delegates attending both in-person and online. The event will combine presentations, lectures, and workshops. If you are interested in speaking or supporting the event, please contact us.
