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, participants can join online or offline. The event will combine presentations, lectures, and workshops. If you are interested to speak at or support the event, please contact us

BE AWARE: TO ENTER THE BUILDING YOU WILL NEED TO SHOW YOUR ID/PASSPORT. 

And online via Zoom.

How

 

We strongly recommend you come by public transportation as parking in the Hague is challenging. The location is 1 minute walk from the railway station.

Train or RandstadRail

Both the train and the RandstadRail connect at The Hague Laan van NOI station. The RandstadRail includes lines 3 and 4 that connect The Hague with Zoetermeer, and the Erasmus line that connects The Hague with Rotterdam.


When you arrive at The Hague Laan van NOI station walk towards the Ministry of SZW. At the exit, turn left immediately and follow the path for 200 meters until you arrive at the Wilhelmina van Pruisenweg.

You can find the HSD Campus in the first silver-colored building (named HeadQuarter) on your left hand.

Tram or Bus

 

Tram 2, buslijn 5 and 23 (stop station Laan van Nieuw Oost-Indië),
Tram 6 (stop Oostinje),

Bus 28 (stop Stuyvesantstraat),
Bus 45, 380, 382, 383 (stop Haagse Poort).

By car

 

From Rotterdam: A13, A4, A12.
From Amsterdam: A4, A12 of A44.
From Utrecht: A12.

 

Upon arrival in The Hague from the A12 (Utrechtsebaan) take exit 3 Bezuidenhout-Mariahoeve. At the traffic light turn right. At the next traffic light continue straight ahead. At the next traffic lights, turn right onto the Wilhelmina van Pruisenweg. At the end, before the sharp turn to the left, you will see the entrance of the HSD Campus on your right (building named 'HeadQuarter').

 

From Amsterdam/Leiden, via de A44/N44: Follow the signs to The Hague (Den Haag).In The Hague (Willem Witsenplein) turn left in the direction of Voorburg-Leidschendam. At Laan van Nieuw Oost-Indie at the traffic lights, before passing the railway-bridge and the gas station BP, turn right on Schenkkade. At the next traffic light left, and short thereafter at the next traffic lights go straight ahead (Wilhelmina van Pruisenweg). At the end, before the sharp turn to the left, you will find the entrance to the HSD Campus on your right (building named 'HeadQuarter').

Parking

 

Unfortunately, there is only limited parking available at the HSD Campus.

 

We, therefore, recommend visiting us by public transport. If you do travel by car, there are paid parking places available near the campus and in the Q-Park Park&Ride (Van Alphenstraat 102, 2274 NE Voorburg) on the other side of the Den Haag Laan van NOI train station.

 

Parking in the neighborhood is also a possibility and is free starting from 14:00.
