Nov. 23, 2019 - PRLog -- The team at Riskskill were both honoured and pleased to attend and support our friends at Web Shield and yet another successful networking conference for risk management people, this time at RiskConnect 2019 in Warsaw.

Over the 19th and 20th November, Web Shield hosted some 250 risk practitioners from across Europe and many from further afield.

There was a superb group of presenters at the event, who rewarded the audience with powerful presentations; such as:

- Keynote presenters from Suddeutsche Zeitung (Obermayer and Obermaier - who were the original 'Panama Papers' 2017 pulitzer-prize winners) who signed copies of their book at the conference.

- Mastercard and Visa executives who presented their visions and key changes to global chargeback and fraud rules.

- USA-based; Better Business Bureau: on the extent of global Deceptive Marketing Practices (also the title of a new publication from our hosts at Web Shield)

- G2A.com and the Belgian Gaming Commission: who presented massively engagingly upon loot boxes.

- The Royal Canadian Mounted Police talking about significant investigations into malpractice

- Deloitte and Deloitte RegTech Lab, MarketScape, Nethone, Bankingblocks, Ethoca and Crystal Blockchain all produced extraordinary presentations about current, interesting and informative topics, as did great people from Web Shield too - who also announced the launch of its multi-language training academy courses on risk management.

Fuller agenda and details on the event can be found on the Web Shield / RiskConnect website.

Bill Trueman from Riskskill (http://www.riskskill.com/) moderated a lively and fascinating panel discussion on Day-1 on the rapidly emerging and poorly understood issue of loot boxes (aka loot crates) and the various views taken by individual national regulators, the card schemes and the ultimate need for a greater understanding and potential need for further clarifying regulation. The panel comprised Peter Naessens (Belgium Gaming Commission), Olav Leonov (G2A) and Markus Prause (Web Shield).

Kevin Smith moderated a panel discussion on Day-2 on the thorny topic of deceptive marketing. The panel comprised Steve Baker (Better Business Bureau), Kyle Smith (Ethoca) and Iveta Korenciakova and Chris West (Bankingblocks). They provided further guidance, experiences and emerging challenges that pulled together a lot of the content from their earlier presentations and the entire event overall. The discussion highlighted the growth and global expansion of the 'tricks' used against consumers and the risk of harm (or worse) that, for example counterfeit products can cause, as well as those of unlicensed pharma and neutra products - and their often inert, harmful or even illegal ingredients.

Christian Chmiel chaired the event in his usual calm, confident and professional manner. The common theme remains industry collaboration in what is becoming an ever complex and diverse environment.
